Go out into the jungle with an experienced hill tribe guide to discover wild ginseng, gooseberries and mushrooms. We also offer fresh coffee grown in the forest.

 
Local People

The local people are warm and hospitable and they welcome the chance to share their traditions with guests. If you wish, guests can try their hand at, or just observe the villagers' daily chores such as rice pounding and creative clothing weaving. They're all performed in the labor-intensive, traditional way without the use of machinery.

What to expect

You'll wake up to the sounds of roosters crowing, singing birds, or the cry of the wild gibbon. Remember, you're on easy time here. There's no need to rush. And if you truly want to relax, opt for a traditional Thai massage given by one of the Karen women. Strong hands will work at those tension knots and reinvigorate, not only your body, but your spirit. At night, take part in the enjoyable bonfire ceremony and lantern lighting. Delight in a performance by the proud young hill tribe children and join in their fun dance. It's a stirring end to an unforgettable day.
