Community Service

The people that inhabit the hills of Northern Thailand have long been a curiosity for visitors to the kingdom. Living a life apart from the lowland Thais, these migratory people seem trapped in a time wrap stretching back to the middle ages. Still participating in traditional forms of agriculture and clinging to their tribal traditions in the face of the intruding 21st century. Most have made long treks from Tibet, Burma, Yunnan, Laos and Vietnam to settle in the safe country of Thailand; bringing with them different languages, costumes and cultures.

Our programs are designed to visit these fascinating peoples without disturbing their way of life, we take small groups and have absolute respect for the local people. Our guides are fluent in a number of hill tribe languages and knowledgeable in their customs and taboos. We roam high amongst the hills, travelling by elephant, bamboo raft and foot through villages that westerners rarely, if ever venture. We will meet Karen, Hmong, Lisu, Akha, Shan and Lahu people; learning about their lives and cultures as well as marvelling at same of the most outstanding scenery anywhere in the world.

There is much to be gained from putting a group of employees together in an environment where they are working together to complete a community development related project. Such projects are effective tools in determining leadership qualities and are sure to highlight the other skills individuals may bring to a team. Although the project might be unrelated to their normal field of work, it is of great benefit to both those undertaking the project, and the beneficiaries of those projects.

Water System Installation
Hill Tribe Village

Many of the hill tribe villages in the area, particularly those of the Lahu and Akha, living at the higher altitudes, are without access to clean water. In numerous instances, water sources (permanent seeps / streams) within a radius of 2 - 3 km of the village could be dammed, and the water piped into holding tanks constructed in the village by means of small diameter flexible piping.
