We are running our trekking tour business together for more than 20 years now.
We were both born north of Chiang Mai and with our combined experienc we are offering truly unique and authentic trekking in Northern Thailand.
We focus on delivering non-touristic trekking adventures to our guests and take them away into one of the most beautiful areas in all of Thailand where they will get in touch with the simple life of the hilltribes we spend the nights at with our participants.
Our tours will lead you off the beaten tourist paths and into the jungles and rural areas so that you can delve deep into the local culture and way of life in this remote areas.
One of our main goals is that we want our guests to feel like good friends from the very first minute on.
Ping was born at a Lahu tribe village in the Mae Tang area. He has worked on the rice farm of his family before he started his training to become a licensed tour guide a while ago and he is collecting practical experience by working for us as guide & assistant.

Ein tolles Trekking-Erlebnis
Ana und Norbert, GER
Die 3-Tagestour mit insgesamt 9 Personen war toll. Das Essen war super, die Wanderung durch die Wälder mit Erläuterungen von unserm Guide Mike zur Natur und Geschichte der "Karen", der selber dort aufgewachsen ist, war ein Erlebnis. Vor allem die Bambusfloßfahrt war, sehr empfehlenswert. Ana und Norbert
