Visit two Hmong communities in Northern Thailand — Doi Pui Village and Ban Mae Sa Mai Village — on a 6-hour trek along the old Opium Trail. A local Hmong guide accompanies you and your private guide between villages, informing you about the natural landscape and the local people who once grew opium on the slopes of Doi Suthep-Pui National Park. Visit Phra That Doi Suthep Temple, the FORRU tree nursery and a Hmong museum, and enjoy a Thai picnic lunch. Your private day trip from Chiang Mai includes round-trip hotel transport by private air-conditioned vehicle.
