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.

Summa cum laude
Nachdem ich die sehr guten Bewertungen gelesen habe,buchten wir auch einen 3-Tagestrip. Wenn ich jeweils eine Note für Betreuung, Kompetenz, Routenverlauf, Organisation, Bewirtung, Preis-Leistungsverhältnis geben würde, dann erhält diese Tour eine 1+/ summa cum laude!!! Ich kann es nur weiterempfehlen!
