The route

Leaving Mae Hong Son we walk for several hours to Hou Su Htouch, up inot the mountains until baout 2pm. It is quite strenous. We will pass though some paddy fields and then walk in the valley to the Long neck village, staying nearby for the night. The return journey to Mae Hong Son can be done by boat, along the Pai River. This take about 2 hours and to hire a boat is 900 baht (additional cost). The remianing few kms will be by car. Alternatively we can walk back.

 

Hill Tribe village accommodation in the village will be basic and you may be sleeping on bamboo or floor mats. Please bring a sleeping mat, sleeping bag and mosquito net, as these are not provided.

 


Porters

If the group is larger ( 4+ people) we will have a porter/s with us to help carry food and supplies. You will be expected to carry your own bag or rucksack. However if you would prefer not to do this then we can arrange a porter for you, at additional cost.
