The adventure starts at 10 AM when you are picked up from the hotel. The first stage involves a leisurely boat ride in a longtail boat for about 50 minutes. We come ashore at Karen village and the adjacent elephant camp where you can explore the village or enjoy an elephant ride (½ hour)
After lunch in the village, we will begin the trek which will pass through various different scenic locations like Karen village, rice fields, mountainous plantations, bamboo forest, Ahka hill tribe village. We will then arrive at a waterfall where we can relax and swim for a while.
Next, we hike through the mountains to reach the Yafu village where the Lahu Hill Tribe resides. We will enjoy the authentic experience of staying with a Lahu Family in a bamboo house. Dinner will be prepared for you in the village itself.
We start the day early with breakfast at 8.30 AM. We then trek through the mountain rice fields and the adjoining plantations. We will reach a great viewpoint where you can take pictures and create lasting memories. We break for lunch that is cooked traditionally on bamboo. The final leg of the trek will be through the forest back to Karen village. We drive to the nearby hot springs, where you can enjoy a luxurious soaking to celebrate your trek after which we will drop you back at your hotel.
