 4 days - 3 nights


Fantastically beautiful drive in the mountains of northern Thailand.
The “Golden Triangle”, wild mountain jungle, colorful markets, rustic mountain tribes in their colorful traditional costumes. We also visit the pretty 'Langhals Karen', adorned with gold-colored rings. We end this highly interesting tour with a visit to the "Pearl of the North" Chiang Mai with its rich cultural treasures and vibrant life. A beautiful, intensive and very inexpensive adventure tour!

Day 01: Arrival in Chiang Rai.
You will be picked up at Chiang Rai airport and taken to a very nice resort with a pool. In the evening we recommend you visit the small but colorful and original night market of Chiang Rai. Overnight in Chiang Rai.


Day 02: Chiang Rai - 'Golden Triangle' - mountain people - long neck women - Thaton.
Drive to the “Golden Triangle”, where the Mae Sai and Mekong rivers form the border between Laos, Burma and Thailand. For a fee you can take a boat trip in the border triangle along Burma and Laos - payable to the tour guide on site. We will then visit an opium museum and your tour guide will tell you interesting facts about opium in the “Golden Triangle”. Drive through a fairytale landscape, past hill tribe villages, on the pass to Mae Salong. Once there, you think you are in a small Chinese village. During Mao's reign, an entire Chinese battalion fled from China via Burma to Mae Salong and settled there. The Mae Salong market offers a unique picture: women from the neighboring mountain villages, in their typical traditional costumes and with blood-red mouths chewing betel, offer their goods (fruit, vegetables, handmade souvenirs, etc.). Then we take a tour of the temple above the village, where an oversized Buddha figure watches over Thaton. Overnight stay in the romantic first class hotel Mae Kok River Resort, located on the river.

Day 03: Thaton – elephant camp – Chiang Mai – craft workshops.
After breakfast we drive to an elephant camp, where we take part in the daily morning washing of the elephants. In a demonstration we see how the animals are prepared and trained for their jungle mission. (For an additional charge you can ride with the pachyderms through the jungle and river for 1 hour and then glide through the dense jungle landscape on a bamboo raft (€25 per person - please register when booking). On the way we visit an orchid and butterfly farm. Overnight stay in a nice middle class hotel in Chiang Mai.


Day 04: Chiang Mai.
At the end of this very interesting tour, we drive to Doi Suthep Temple (800 m above Chiang Mai) in the morning. A jewel among Thai monasteries, this temple with a golden chedi offers magnificent panoramic views. Then transfer to the airport or train station.
