Private Tour Northern Thailand
7 nights – 6 days: Trekking and hill tribes
Discover the beauty of Northern Thailand. Explore Chiang Mai and the mountains of Soppong in the Mae Hong Son area.
The Little Eden resort is located in the mountains between Pai and Mae Hong Son, close to the Burmese border. It is a breath taking area, where hill tribes settled down and where you can discover limestone caves and waterfalls. Little Eden was built in the Shan village Pangmapa (Sopoong) right next to the Nam Lang river. 40% Burmese Shan, 40% hill tribes (Lisu, Lahu and Karen) and only 20% Thais live in this area. Pangmapa is a really small village with a market and some small shops. Experience the fascinating nature in the mountains of Northern Thailand.
