Thao "This tour is amazing with combinations of trekking, learning about local tribal cultures, cooking activities, bamboo rafting and plenty of personal/group leisure time. It is fun and adventurous. You need a decent physical strength to do the hike, carry your own luggage and don't mind being bitten by the ants/ mosquitoes. :) Accommodation: Excellent!

    This tour was one of the most humbling experiences of my life. The kindness and generosity of the hill tribe people was amazing. Most can not communicate with you, so for them to make you feel comfortable in something that is so different to what you are... Read more

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • What's the trek level of difficulty in terms of distance and terrain?

      This trip is rated at an 'average' level of difficulty.

    • I would be arriving late that night is this ok?

      The adventure begins in the evening of your first day. It is considered only as arrival day so arriving late at night would be no problem. You may miss the group meeting that is held that night however it's not a disaster if you miss it. We will just need to inform G Adventures that you will be a little late checking in that night.
