What to bring on this trek
• A small rucksack/day sack
• A change of clothes (shorts & t shirt) especially useful in the wet season to change into at the end of the day
• A lightweight rain coat
• Warm jumper/pullover
• Swimming suit
• Small towel/sarong
• Insect repellent/mosquito spray
• Toilet paper
• One bottle of water
• Personal toiletries
• Some money for drinks and hill tribe crafts
• Plastic bags (good for keeping your gear dry in the wet season)
What to wear
• Wear light clothes as trekking and biking in Thailand can be hot and sweaty work. Shorts, T shirt and a sun hat are ideal.
• In the rainy season from April to October bring a rain coat and a dry change of clothes. Rain is possible at any time of the year so it will probably be worth packing a lightweight rain coat even in the dry season.
• Although hiking boots aren't a necessity at least a sturdy pair of running shoes should be worn. Some people trek with sandals but they do leave your feet open to be scratched by vegetation and are not recommended also flip flops (thongs) aren't appropriate as they don't provide enough support.
You can take the option to take a dip in the water by the waterfall - best bring some swim wear!
After collection from your Chiang Mai hotel we will make the hour drive north towards our trek starting point in the mountains around Chiang Dao.The mornings trek will be around 3 hours and will take you through thick and pristine forest on route we will stop off at a waterfall for a break and if you choose you can take a plunge into the small pool at the base of the waterfall to cool off from the mornings trek. The trek will continue to Mae Mae Shan village where we will take lunch and pay a vist to the local hill tribe school. Following our lunch time break we will board the transport again for the short drive down the mountain to the flat flood plain of the Ping River, here we will start our biking. The biking will take you through some picturesque rural scenery and follow the route of an irrigation channel which feeds the abundant rice paddies and fruit orchards which can be seen along the route. On completion of the biking we will board the transport again for our last stop of the day which will be Banden Temple.
