This is the first and only thoroughgoing guide to do-it-yourself trekking in northern Thailand. The book provides detailed accounts and 50 maps of 25 treks in the provinces of Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Nan, and Mae Hong Son. Indeed, if all the suggested variations on the trips are included, it outlines up to 100 expeditions. The treks range from a 2-hour picnic stroll to a waterfall to extreme jungle adventure lasting 4 to 5 days. Most are undertaken on foot, but, where appropriate, some are better carried out by motorbike or even mountain bike. The book guides the reader up Doi Pahom Pok and Doi Chiang Dao, tells how to scale Doi Pu Wae and trek in Nan’s Doi Phu Kha National Park, and describes walking the old “Old Elephant Trail” between Mae Hong Son and Chiang Mai. It advises how to hire Lua, Karen, and Wa guides on the spot and suggests what equipment and food to take. There are thumbnail sketches of the various hill-tribe peoples met. This unique book will appeal to independent eco-conscious travelers seeking to explore solo Lan-Na’s mountains and forests, as well as to aspiring Rambos or Tarzans wanting to strike out into the jungle on their own.
