Nice place to stay next to the jungle and practise trekkings, easy walk to other tribes as lahu. Good food, and the best is the guide Tao, very kind people who speaks very good english. And will explain you all about jungle and their tribes. Dont expect confort in the bungalows

We intended to stay two nights, but returned after the first night. They have a very inconvenient free transportation, where they depart in evening and return in the morning. So if you really want to see something you have to stay two nights. But we slept so bad (bad mattress, noise of water running in toilet, big spider in room),... More

Was intending on staying two nights only stayed one. Beautiful, peaceful, waterfall running, birds, crickets chirping. Spiders. Basic accommodation and food. The experience is uniquely village life. Don't expect anything from accomm. In fact is actually overpriced for what it is. But place is incredible. Not for tourists!! But for travellers.

The transportation was free from Chiang Rai. It was a hell of an experience to be at the back of the jeep and going up up and down down. Pure nature all around. We passed by a tea field. The last hill going up before arriving at the hill house was awesome ! You have to hang on tight on... More

We arrived by mountain bike from Chiang Rai - a challenge for only the most intrepid cyclists. It was fun and exciting. Though the last 1/2 hour was so steep we had to push the bikes, this delightful place made the effort completely worthwhile. The setting is really spectacular, with vistas to tea plantations below and a wild tropical bamboo... More

We had very high expectations with our 3 night trip planned up in the Akha Hills. We had done a similar Eco-Tour Stay in the local villages in Mexico and had loved it! This place must have started out with great ideas and great expectations and maybe a few years ago was more of an authentic experience as once upon... More

I think this place was started with good intentions but something is not quite right. Even though my review is not the greatest I would like to go back to volonteer in the school and maybe make some suggestions to make the place somewhere you want to go back to ! A lot of potential but Maybe the owner has... More
