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 planned to stay here for 6 weeks and teach English at the local school with my girlfriend. After speaking to the owner for several weeks we decided to make our way to chiang rai from borneo as it seemed like a good cause.. how wrong could we be... arrived at the bus station told to make our way to...

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

We booked to go to Akha hill house forgetting to check trip advisor! We were lucky i suppose after reading reviews. Some of their problems are not yet solved in my opinion. We were picked up in a rav4 and trip was fine to hill house. Communication problems between office in city and hill still evident. They were unaware that... More

This is not for the faint hearted, the trek is physically very demanding. There are more Mosquitos than all the deet of your dreams could deal with. The food is not great; tasteless and not nutritious, largely cabbage based so BRING SNACKs! But it is beautiful and you get to see a Thailand that is no more. I would never... More

dangerous smoke in the area makes any view impossible. staff is poorly managed and most are new there. rooms and toilet are dirty and poorly constructed. dangerous railing, be very careful that you fall over it. tours are VERY overpriced. motorbikes start very early and you are right on the road, so there is no avoiding it.
