My brother and I completed this tour and loved it! Our guide was Chin, and he took the time to stop and explain so much. As we trekked he was always discussing different stories from the jungle, traditions, customs, and overall shared a lot of knowledge that we thoroughly enjoyed! The hike was not strenuous per se, but I’d say you have to be fairly active because there is climbing up and down the hills/mountainside as well as around rocks, etc. The second part of the tour, zip lining, was really fun as well! We loved our guides and they were really funny. There are 2 drops (1 is 15m and one is 40m) and they were a bit scary, but we felt completely safe and the drops were still fun! I’d recommend this tour!

We did this back in May so apologies for the delayed review! Our tour guide was Zak and he was so friendly and knowledgable! He had so much to tell us about the flora and fauna. He has a great sense of humour and really made the day special. I can honestly say it was one of the highlights of our trip. It was super hot (over 40 degrees) on the day we did this trip and Zak and the minibus driver kept us well hydrated with cool water which was much appreciated!

Thank you for your informative review. Our guide Mr Sak is always keen to provide participants with an extraordinary experience. Please come back perhaps during the rainy season as it is a totally different scenery.

Overall I very much enjoyed the trek, accompanied by just 2 others and the guide. Every morning the jungle was shrouded in cloud, but it was great, quite mysterious, and also cooler. We still had some great vistas of the mountains mainly late morning and afternoons. Khun Sak was a fantastic guide, very lively, happy and a good sense of humour. He taught us a great deal about the plants, insects, fruits and way of life in the jungle. The length and grade of the walk was fine, but could easily do a bit more on day 3. The Lahu Village on the first night was OK (although we all thought that the dogs barking were crazy), whilst the Shan Homestay on the second night was excellent. The walk down on Day 3 is really nice through tea and coffee plantations, but overall I feel it could be improved because in reality it's only half a day. On the descent there is a small village, and I bought an iced coffee at the "Jungle Cafe" there, so we all stopped for about 30 minutes. Perhaps a little longer at the Homestay after breakfast, because it's a really nice place, and a planned stop at the Jungle Cafe for an iced drink and snack/light lunch would be a great enhancement. Total length is about 6km (up) + 14km (up/down) + 7km (down) = 27km.

Hello Steve. Thank you for your extensive and detailed review. It reflect truly the experience, and our guide Sak is always keen to provide participants with an extraordinary trip. We will put your valuable observations into the planning, as we also think that leaving a bit later on the third day to enjoy the scenery is a good idea, as well as having coffee at that little out of the way, but also scenic coffee place is a great addition. I also love to stop there when I am up in the area. Thanks again, and please come back to visit us on your next opportunity.
