What to expect on the Trekking Mae Wang trip

The one day tour starts with a pickup from your hotel between 8:00 and 8:30 in the morning. We will pick you up from Chiang Mai old city and a 3km radius for free. If you wish to be picked up from a location outside this area, please contact us so we can arrange that for an extra fee. Our tour guide will welcome you and then the trip by air conditioned minivan starts. The ride to our first stop, the elephant camp, takes around 1 hour.

At the elephant camp it’s time to meet the Elephants! Then we begin to prepare the elephant food. We meet them and feed them: a wonderful experience to get them close! The elephants enjoy their food-filled baskets. Next is a stroll through the jungle with them. You can see them looking for food here (if they haven’t had enough yet!). You can also see them in the mud or pool while they are bathing alone or with other elephants. Don’t forget to bring a camera as the views are amazing in this hilly area!

When we’re finished here, it’s time for a one hour trek around the Mae Wang and Sanpathong area. The trek is suitable for any reasonably fit person and families are more than welcome. Our experienced trekking guide will show you the local flora and fauna and guide you through rice paddies, over hills and past small rivers. Enjoy the dense forest and the open areas where Thais prepare their rice fields. After the one hour trek we arrive at the Mae Wang waterfall, where you can go for a refreshing swim. Don’t forget to bring a swimming suit!

After enjoying a cooldown at the waterfalls, our van will be ready to bring you to a restaurant. Enjoy a fresh Thai set menu lunch here and gather some energy for the final part of the tour. If you need vegetarian or halal lunch options, please contact us so we can arrange that for you.

Our last stop of the day is the Mae Wang river. Here we board a traditional bamboo raft for an hour raft down the river. Steering the raft is not necessary as there are many experienced locals who know exactly how it works. Your job is to sit down and relax and view the river banks while we slowly make our way to the end point.

Between 15:00 and 16:00 it’s time to board our van for the return journey to Chiang Mai. The ride back should take around an hour. Arrival at your hotel or other drop off point in Chiang Mai should be no later than 17:00, depending on the traffic. Enjoy this amazing easy trekking trip and book it online here!
