Day 1
On departure from Chiang Mai we will head north towards Chiang Dao. We will make a stop at a local market where the guide will stock up on food supplies for the trek. As Doi Chiang Dao (Thailand,s third highest mountain) comes into view we will turn off the main highway and make our way up to the hills to the trek start point. The trek will start along tracks well trodden by the feet of local hill tribes and villages and we will make our way to a small waterfall which will make a great refreshing break from the trekking and a chance to shower under the cool waters. The trekking will continue onto our overnight destination which is a small Shan village high up in the hills. Here we will spend a night at the wonderfully unique Tree House Village. The local Shan villages will prepare your evening meal (feel free to get involved!) and the evening will be free to take it easy and relax after the days trek.
