About the 1 Day Trek Waterfalls Trail (WALKING ONLY)

This tour is designed to let you experience the best activities in Northern Thailand in a single day, including visiting the most beautiful waterfalls in Chiang Mai.

After an early morning ride into the countryside, your trekking tour begins. Your English-speaking Karen guide will lead you on a 2-hour trek through the jungle, across a river, and to a waterfall. You will also visit beautiful rice terraces (available from the beginning of June until the middle of November) where you can relax and enjoy the view of young green rice growing in Thailand’s iconic step-like rice paddies.

Next, enjoy a Thai lunch and a brief rest before going on a jungle trek along the waterfall trail. For another four hours, walk along the lush, shady nature trails to even more rice terraces. Come upon another gorgeous waterfall and breathe in the refreshing mist from the falls. For a truly unique experience, cool off with a refreshing swim in the natural plunge pool at the bottom of the waterfall!

At the end of the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to change into dry clothing before riding back to your hotel in Chiang Mai. There are no additional stops or ‘add-ons’ during this tour.
