tour details

Hills and mountains covered in tropical jungle are home to the Lisu hill tribe and their very own way of life. Experience the tradition of the Lisu during your stay at the award-winning Lisu Lodge and enjoy exciting outdoor activities in the beautiful Mae Taeng Valley.

Seat-in-coach tour: Daily departure from Chiang Mai with English speaking guide – minimum 2 persons.

Early in the morning, pick up from your hotel in Chiang Mai by air-conditioned van to the Lisu Lodge, you will reach after an hour. Upon arrival at the Lisu Lodge, a traditional welcome drink is served. Start your adventure with cycling about 13 kms to a tea plantation. Stop off to relax and enjoy a magnificent landscape at the tea plantation where you will be led by an experienced guide who will introduce you to the process of growing and harvesting tea as well as vegetation propagation to produce tea seedlings at the nursery, whilst teaching you how to pluck tea leaves and enjoy a cup of fresh-roasted tea. Continue cycling to the rafting station. After a picnic lunch by the riverbank, you have a chance to do 45 minutes white water rafting to a traditional thai country village (Note: due to low water levels during the months of April & May, white water rafting will be replaced by bamboo rafting). Then you will be transported back to the Lisu Lodge by a local truck. Along the way, stop at an Akha village for a chat with the shaman (village spirit).
Time at leisure with possibility to choose from the following activities:
Rice paddies - Walk with our guide through rice paddies where we work together with the villagers to grow rice without the use of pesticide and insecticide. Besides strolling through the green or the golden carpet of the paddy fields, depending on the season, you will learn and participate in the various stages of rice cultivation in northern Thai style.
Himmapaan nursery - Learn about the flora of northern Thailand and how we restore the forest ecosystem at a tree nursery of the Himmapaan Foundation whose goal is to support and implement environmental and social projects by working with local communities in areas affected by tourism.
Vegetable garden - Visit the vegetable garden where we produce organic fertilizer from leftover organic waste and grow a variety of vegetables and fruits that are used in several dishes served at Lisu Lodge.
Enjoy a Thai dinner and a traditional Lisu dance show and overnight at LISU LODGE.
