Staying With The Akha Hill Tribe – Chiang Rai, Thailand

Located 24 km from Chiang Rai city center, 1500 m above sea level, the Akha village can be found.
The scenic ride couldn’t be more pleasing passing by rice fields, hot springs, mountain, rivers, temples, villages, and lush greens.
When arriving in the village the theme is kept, it’s placed in a valley surrounded by tea plantations.

The Akha are an indigenous hill tribe originally from China, they migrated to Southeast Asia in the early 20th century.
They are one of the largest hill tribe groups in Thailand.
We had the pleasure to spend some time with them and their beautiful surroundings and here goes some tips for you to do it too.

 

The Hotel

Luckily, for those who wish to stay, the Akha run a budget hotel inside their village.
Prices go from 200 to 1200 baht depending on the room.
The bamboo bungalow fits perfectly with the environment and creates a magical light effect when the sunrise comes.
Everything is very simple, more suitable for those who don’t mind budget stays.
Here their website: http://www.akhahill.com/

 

How To Get there

Sited 13 km away from the city center, some kind of transportation will be needed to access the village.
To better explore Chiang Rai, we recommend renting a motorcycle( 200 baht per day) or a car during your stay(if you are an experienced driver).
If that is not desired or possible, free transport (on limited hours) is offered for those staying at their hotel.
Another option is grabbing a taxi or booking guided treks on the surroundings.

Activities are available to further enjoy the contact with nature, such as paddle boats and kiting.
Families having a picnic, taichi, and musical performances from visitors that come to sing, dance and play instruments with friends.

The park attracts free animal life, that is the real and right thing to be seeing and appreciated.
