In my opinion is not a place for enjoy the nature at all,the worst thing is they have elephants ride treckings. Of course is not for a real animal and nature lover.A wild animal has to be in the wild! We have to stop this trates and animal abuses and not participate if not you are same responsible for the...

the staff were not very friendly, dogs were scared of the staff and hiding under customers chairs, our luggage didnt turn up until 8pm leaving us cold and wet from our trek in the rain. The rooms and facilities were tired, it seemed as though no maintenance work is carried out and the staff arent interested in making it a... More

The individuals that we booked with were great and friendly. The village itself is beautiful. The first night we spent in the bungalow we saw two huge spiders in the restroom and two cockroaches in the room. It is nice they give you a mosquito net to sleep in, but we still were shocked at the size of the spider... More

It is in the small Akha Village (about 30 - 40 familys) at the N-W direction of Chiang Rai. The Guest House provides free transportation to and from the Guest house. The journey takes 1 hour. The price for staying in the single room (shared bathroom) is only about US 4. It is incretible money-worth. The room is very basic... More

The rooms are a bit basic with poor beds and little to keep you warm in the very cold low season. I had to get up to put several more layers of clothing on. Apparently it had been even colder at other times (this was about Christmas). But the views are spectacular and it soon warms up in the morning.... More

ideally would have preferred a 1 night 2 day stay but 2 night 2 day was suffice. we had a fantastic start to the trip. the speed boat down the mekong was lovely and the elephant riding was OK. I had previously been to the elephant nature park in chaing mai so the conditions the elephants were kept in wasn't... More

Reviews of Akha Hill House range from excellent to terrible largely reflecting each reviewer's attitude towards nature, the hill tribes and reasons for travelling. This was the first wholly Akha hill-tribe owned and managed tourist enterprise in ChiangRai Province. The tiny Akha village is at an elevation of around 700 metres above sea level, not 1,500 metres as given in... More

I really enjoyed my time with the Akha people. All the trekking was great fun. Our guide Atit (also known as Sunday), was excellent in providing us with opportunities to experience new things and try new new food, especially fruit. The people were caring towards our very need and they really looked after us in times of difficulty. I would... More

So we'd heard mixed reviews about Akha Hill house and thought we'd find out for ourselves what it was like. Firstly I would highly reccommend going, even just for 1 night for the jungle experience alone. You get picked up at 4.30 from chiang rai (akha river house) and stand in the back of a pick up truck for 23km.... More
