What To Expect

Immerse yourself in local culture with this tour around the hill tribes of Chiang Mai. After getting picked up at your hotel or meeting up at the designated spot, you'll kick off with stops at five different community villages. Meet the Hill Tribes who originate from Tibet and China - the Akha, who are known for their spirituality; the Lisu, outgoing people often settled near water; the Meo, who believe in a number of household spirits as well as soul; the White Karen Tribe, best known for the neckrings worn by their women; the Black Lahu Tribe, who speak the most common dialect of Lahu; and the Palong, a smaller group known for growing tea. Befriend the locals and learn a thing or two about their customs and culture, before heading to to the Chiang Dao Cave and Temple, an enchanting limestone cave complex. After an adventurous morning, you can enjoy authentic Thai lunch at a local restaurant before capping off the day with a trip tp an orchid and butterfly farm.

    Very nice tour guide and the driver, we all enjoyed it so much
  • Jye Bing 28 May 2018
    We are very satisfied with our booking with Klook. From picking up within the timing to having coming back to destination. It was an enjoyable trip with guided tour guide, with laughter. The lunch was very good and it suits us. We definitely would recommend others to join Klook in future.

    Picked up at airbnb. Had abit trouble during picking up for tour as our place couldn’t be found by driver. Tour guide was fluent in English and deep background knowledge in the five hill tribes and chiang dao cave. Sufficient explanations and visits of the different tribes, tour guide can be approached for more questions to understand more. Given enough time to take photos at different places. Tour guide and driver were patience enough to wait. Great place to have lunch. Age group of the tour group was alright. Youngsters were 5, Adults were 5. No kids. Great time!

    I did not receive any confirmation if we should go to the meeting place or if we will be picked up at our hotel. Such inconvenience. No contact information was provided. Since it was already later than the specified pick up time (6:30 to 7:30 AM), we decided to go to the meeting place, but no one was there - it was already 8AM. I had to call Klook hotline to check! It was an overseas call! They asked me to call their staff instead! Which is another expensive call. Wasted so much for this. They were late in picking up their clients, they were supposed to go at our hotel - as they say. The tour was okay. Very informative about the tribe's cultures but don't expect much. They are modernized versions, not actual tribes that are in the rural areas/forests.

    great day with great guide. highly recommended. Great insight to the different people and where they live
  • LETICIA 5 May 2018
    The tour was excellent and what I was looking for. I read in the past some vague information about the Hill Tribes in Northern Thailand and the tour didn’t deceive me. The guide was also very knowledgeable and kind.
  • Yi Hui 2 Nov 2017
    great ! love the experience, recommended to go and understand the culture of chiang mai
  • Robert 11 Sep 2017
    My first experience booking a tour with Klook: it's both reasonably priced and well delivered.
  • Jodene 29 Jun 2017
    This tour was a highlight of our 4-country Asian trip. We saw, learned, tasted and experienced so many things. As a teacher, I especially enjoyed visiting a couple hillside schools. The temple cave was also very interesting. Our guide was THE BEST and helped us understand some of the culture. Wish we could be back in Chiang Mai to take more tours. . . another day.
