One of our most diverse programs in one of the most stunning spots in Thailand. This visit to Thailand’s northern Hill Tribe community will be hard to forget. The Akha people are a disadvantaged minority that migrated into Thailand. By living and breathing their culture you will learn about their unique and distinct lifestyle.
This program will have you immersed in the village, experiencing a range of cultural activities, as well as enjoying the surrounding fauna, wildlife and tourist attractions on the final day.
Your main activity will be to help out the local Akha people through various means such as teaching, gardening and light construction and renovation.
The idea here is not to try to alter their culture or perceptions in any way, but rather to embrace their way of life and learn from one another. This means open-mindedness and a willingness to help and understand the needs of the Akha people.
The hilltop village is not far from the Northern city of Chiang Rai and is surrounded by lush jungle, which provides with natural resources that the Akhas use to survive. Plants are used for healing, bamboo helps construct their homes, hunting and farming provides them with food. The Akha people have their own unique language, religion and culture.
This schedule can be changed and/or amended depending on weather conditions, local conditions and unforeseen circumstances.
