A Thai Hard Adventure

A Thai Hard Adventure

A visit to Chiang Mai is an unforgettable and adventure-packed experience as you put on your walking boots and trek these hills. Identified as one of the main attractions of Northern Thailand for trekking, this area is home to many ethnic hill tribes such as Karen, Lahu, Lisu, Chan and Meow, as well as a large population of domestic elephants and other wildlife. The Mae Taeng Valley provides views of lush jungle, local wildlife and encounters with exotic hill tribes. Escape the concrete world of the cities to be one with nature, which is what Thailand is all about.
