Let us explain how to get the best trekking experience in Chiang Mai.
First of all we recommend at least a 2 days trekking with a night in a hut or bamboo house. This night will be in dormitory style for most of the trek in this region, but doing a private trekking can bring you to sleep to the guide family house that will give your more authenticity.
If you do a one day trekking we will recommend to go to Doi Inthanon and do the trail Kew Mae Pan.
Secondly you must choose the difficulty of the trekking, (please note that you will need closed shoes with a non slippery sole).
Young people or people who are doing sport can go for the group trekking and must follow the group regardless of the difficulty. Also the sun, the heat or rain if there is (most often mid july to mid October) is quite strong and can ad more challenge to this.
If you are in family with children or people who can not walk hard, choose a private trekking, the guide will choose the most adapted way to you.
Can I do a trekking with very young children ie: 2 years old or a bit more?
YES ! of course again choose the private trekking, here is a good one and many people bring children over there, click here to know more
There is trek with just a kilometer to walk. It can be also the same A point to B point and the way will be changed to much much longer and it will become a trekking for experienced trekker..
You don’t need to bring your big back pack with you, some companies can keep it with them and you will take just a small bag pack.
