Welcome to Pooh Eco-Trekking

A different approach

Our approach to tourism is quite different from other trekking companies. We run our business by ourselves and do not use travel agents to sell to tourists at inflated prices. Most treks offered in Chiang Mai are operated a short distance from the city borders, visiting busy tourist locations in large groups and hill tribe villages that exist more for tourists to “visit” than as a genuine local communities.
By contrast, what we offer is a more authentic experience. We visit rarely seen hill tribe communities located some distance from Chiang Mai province and avoid the cliche, waterfall & elephant riding combination packages on sale elsewhere. What we have discovered from the customer feedback received over the years; our customers appreciate a different approach!

2-4 day Real Hill Tribe Trekking

Our most recommended trek is our trek in the Sopmoei-Mae Sariang area of Thailand. Highlights of the multi-day trek include visiting a Lawa village, camping near the river where you will learn jungle cooking, visiting a Bat cave, and home-stay in local villages.

This trips brings you close to nature and the beautiful natural surroundings that Thailand offers in abundance. Getting to know and observe local communities affords a rare glimpse into a simpler lifestyle in a more rural setting, and home-stay completes the experience.

1-day Thai Elephant Conservation Center

For those tourists with less time available or on a more limited budget, we offer an opportunity to visit the Thai elephant conservation center, in Lampang. Here the elephants are treated humanly. The tour includes visiting with these majestic creatures – some small baby elephants , elephant bathing and seeing the elephant hospital where important care is provided. A fun and interesting day out in an environment that is supportive to these gentle giants.
