This trip will bring you to the heart of a Karen hilltribe village in the mountain. This little peaceful village situates amid the unexploited forested mountain in Kanchanaburi which is about 250 kilometers from Bangkok. Trekking on the tribesman's trail into the wood, you will partake in a wide range of forest-oriented activities representing their way of life. Unbeknown waterfalls and other spots are the highlights of the trip which you cannot find in the mass tour. You will definitely experience the real hilltribe by not only dining the local meals which will be cooked onsite with mountain herbs and wild vegetables but also, lodging in a tropical cabin next to the mountain stream and the sounds of nocturnal animals
