Surprise Yourself

This itinerary is packed with the stuff of childhood dreams—float down the Kham and Mae Wang  river on a bamboo raft! Climb the Sticky Waterfalls! Learn about Asian elephant behavior from the dedicated mahouts at ChangChill sanctuary. We also hop in a long tail boat and have lunch in the bamboo floating house village of Mae Ngat Dam Reservoir. This is a deep immersion in Thai culture, from secret temple visits to cooking demonstrations to an impactful overnight stay with the Karen hill tribe community.


Meet the Rescue Elephants of ChangChill

Recharge Your Senses

We walk century-old paths traveled by monks to secret temples and follow soupy jungle trails in search of rare endemic species. In our visit to the organic farms of Ban Pong Huai Lan, we learn about local sustainability projects. This adventure is deeply spiritual, enlightening and jammed with activity and unreal scenery! Our stay at UNESCO World Heritage site-designated Kaomai Lanna Hotel and Resort (a former tobacco farm) is a unique introduction to Northern Thailand’s fading tobacco industry.

I found this to be a life changing experience in a positive way. I also can’t wait to do another trip. Fa, our guide, was wonderful, and I would do it all again. Thank you for making trips like this available where a woman can travel alone, meet other like-minded women, and feel completely safe doing so!”
