Mae Kampong consists of several villages; the name of each begins with 'Mae Kampong' followed by its unique name. There are at least 2 ways to get there. The flatter road from Chiang Mai is via Mae On with its own guest houses.
At Mae Kampong there are several rustic coffee shops. The one at the top of the hill with the valley view is Chomnok Chommai whereas the extremely popular Lung Pud Pa Peng, just 100 meters after Flight of the Gibbon on the right, is a firm favorite with almost non-stop photographing by the steady flow of visitors. It's the rustic looking house with the round sign by the door, a coffee teapot tilted as if pouring into a metal cup... Hung above the doorway. The Latte is great at Lung Pud Pa Peng and the grill sausage next door at the lowly-looking hut is to die for. They finish fast, so go early.
The Mae Kampong waterfalls is about 300m after Chomnok Chommai at a curve while the viewpoint is a few km further up very steep roads. We'd decided to skip the viewpoint when our motorbike just couldn't fight against the slope.
There are some private guest houses here; we'd been told the locals can't speak English although it may be otherwise.
All in all, it's an excellent rustic getaway. Best if you stay overnight to savour the rustic ambience here or down in Mae On. More
