Take part in one of the best adventures in Thailand – and get to experience the ‘real’ country.
Get behind the ‘wheel’ of your very own Tuk Tuk and explore the stunning mountains and back roads of Chiang Mai, experiencing tiny rural communities, stunning mountains and hill tribe villages. With two guides leading the way and more adventure than you can shake a stick at, this is the journey of a lifetime and one that will give you bragging rights for years to come.
Day 1: Pick up from Chiang Mai and transfer to our base camp for your driver training and Temple blessing. IN the evening we’ll have a great Thai feast and really introduce you to the real taste of Thailand.
Day 2: More exploration in the morning (and more time for training) and then it’s time to visit a small elephant home leading the way in elephant care (note – no riding allowed) where you’ll learn about elephants in Thailand and get to walk with them and help their mahouts bathe them in the local river. After that it’s time to indulge in a spot of bamboo rafting before yet another great Thai feast in the evening.
Day 3: Today we really head off the beaten track and up the back roads towards Thailand’s highest mountains. Think switch back roads, incredible views, tiny hill tribe villages and the most amazing Tuk Tuk adventure. By mid afternoon we park up the Tuk Tuks at our overnight village and jump into a truck to get to the roof of Thailand – Doi Inthanon. A stunning day.
Day 4: No driving today as it’s all about exploring the forest. We head off after breakfast and trek through the forest around Doi Inthanon. Expect stunning waterfalls, towering trees, lunch in the forest and then rice terraces and a very cool Hill Tribe village for the the freshest coffee you can imagine.
Day 5: Unfortunately it’s time to say goodbye to your trusty Tuk Tuk as you head back to Chiang Mai city by private minivan / car at the end of this fantastic adventure. You’ll arrive back in the city by around midday.
