1 Trekking Guides
All guides are English speaking and TAT (Tourist Authority of Thailand) trained and certified. Many guides used are natives of the area you will trek in and know the areas very well.

1 Baggage
You will only be required to take a day pack on the overnight trek. For your main baggage you will not take this on your trek. We suggest leaving your main baggage at your hotel or guest house while on the trek. Because of the trekking scene in Chiang Mai nearly all guest houses and hotels have some form of luggage storage where they can take care of you bags. If you can not store your bags at your hotel or guest house you can store the bags at the trekking office.

During this trek you will be provided with 4 meals. Lunch and dinner on the 1st day and breakfast and lunch on the 2nd day. Please have breakfast before you are picked up on your first day.

You may also want to bring a few snacks to keep your energy levels up.

1 Insurance
We provide accident insurance for this tour to cover medical bills up to a maximum amount of 100,000 baht.

1 Safety
Trekking in this part of Thailand is very safe and accidents are very rare but still safety is always a priority. A limited amount of accident insurance is provided to cover some medical bills in case of an injury but it is advised that you have your own comprehensive accident insurance.

1 What to wear
Wear light clothes as trekking in this part of the world can be hot and sweaty work. Shorts, T shirt and a sun hat are ideal. Long trousers are OK as they will protect your lower legs more but will be hotter to wear. Although hiking boots aren’t a necessity at least a sturdy pair of running shoes should be worn. Some people trek with sandals but they do leave your feet open to be scratched by vegetation also flip flops (thongs) aren’t appropriate as they don't provide enough support. In the rainy season from April to October bring a rain coat. Bring a change of clothes for after the rafting. Please be sensitive about your dress in the hill tribe village short and t shirts are OK but nothing to revealing please.

1 What to bring
A small rucksack/day sack, shorts and T shirt for trekking (long trousers if you prefer), A change of clothes (shorts & t shirt) especially useful in the wet season to change into at the end of the day, warm jumper/fleece for cool season, Walking shoes, socks, swimming suit, small towel/sarong, insect spray, sun cream, raincoat (rainy season), some toilet paper, one bottle of water. Some money for drinks and hill tribe crafts. No bedding or sleeping bags are required as we supply all the necessary sleeping equipment.
