EXTREMELY IMPORTANT NOTES

*****PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU BOOK*****

*****EMTREMELY IMPORTANT NOTE IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT*****

  • This trip is made for travelers who want to get exposed to a new culture of a minority group in Thailand.
  • You have to be physically fit, very flexible, and open-minded to new doings, culture, and experiences.
  • The accommodations have no AC, but the area that it is located in takes good breeze at night, making the air a bit chill.
  • A note on the cabin: The cabin can accommodate 4 guests and the sleeping space has to be shared. So this is fine if you are a family of four. In case this is a joined-group tour, sleeping space will be allocated. There is enough space outside the cabin, which is still under the roof and with a mosquito net.
  • The tour is operated throughout the year, being unavailable during late August to late October due to the peak of the forest rain.
  • Wear appropriate outfits and gears for outdoor activities. In the forest, it can get a bit chilling at night.
