At villages you can sample some local tea and learn about the tea farming traditions of the region. Trek is moderate and suited for all reasonably fit persons.
Day 1: Trekking to Loi Lon village
Our trekking adventure starts 8:30 with 30 minute Tuktuk transfer trough scenic route enjoying green mountain valleys with paddy fields of different local products. Our trek starts from a small idyllic junction village with mountain creek running next to it. We start ascending trough small trekking lane trough lush forests and tea plantations with sweeping views over the surrounding mountain valleys.
After approx. three hours of trekking we make a lunch stop at small Shan village with a charming Buddhist monastery. The village is built on mountain side with spectacular views of surrounding valleys and tea plantations. Here we have a chance to meet some local monks and novices before we start heading to our day’s destination.
After three hours of trekking through the mountain sides with feeling of solitude we reach Loi Lon village where we spend the night.
