Trekking in the Northern part includes Doi Chiangdao to the Maetang river area. This is one of the most popular destination as it is only an hour’s drive from Chiang Mai and offers stunning jungle, waterfalls and wild rivers. Doi Chiangdao (or Doi Luang) is the country’s third tallest mountain is forming an impressive mountain as backdrop.
South West of Chiangmai lies the Doi Inthanon, the country’s tallest mountain, with numerous waterfalls and jungle trails. The mountain is also part of the Doi Inthanon National Park, which is the most visited National Park in north Thailand.
Half-way between Bangkok and Chiangmai in Tak province, lies a small remote valley called Umphang. The trek we propose in this area is definitely one of the wildest program, through the Mae Nam Khlong and Umphang wildlife santcuary. Usually wildlife is difficult to spot during any trek or tours as most animals are nocturnal. The Tilosu waterfall is also said to be the most impressive in the country.
Central Thailand has excellent trekking opportunities and wildlife observation in the Khao Yai National Park. ActiveThailand also conduct treks in the Kanchanaburi area and all the way to the border in Sanklaburi.
All our treks are fully inclusive and are conducted by experienced English speaking guides
