Do you want to immerse yourself into beautiful natural surroundings today ? After a pick-up at the hotel, we choose mountain bikes to set off on a ride from the Thai countryside into the lush greenery of subtropic dipterocarp forests. At lunch time we will be at a local market where we can see the farmers selling their products. By pick-up truck we make our way to a remote village higher up into the mountains. These are the lands of the ethnic minorities. We start a trek that will lead us through their territory for a few hours. Amazingly, these hill tribes live mostly self-sufficient and find a way of providing in their own needs on these steep mountain slopes. Late afternoon back to Chiang Mai.
