Fjallraven Thailand Trail will take you on a 50-kilometers long path following an old trail connecting hill tribe villages. It was once used by villagers in the past. Nowadays, this trail is abandoned and almost forgotten, as everyone prefers a more convenient mode of transportation. During the four days of trekking with Fjallraven Thailand Trail, we will take you to discover one of the most breathtaking hiking paths in Thailand. The highest point of the trail is 1,700 meters above sea level. You have the option of joining a one-day rafting trip along one of the most beautiful rivers in Thailand after completing the hike.
Tickets are available for a maximum of 70 hikers per start date with a total of 210 registered participants. Please make your reservation as early as possible!
Just nearly 20 years ago, Mae Ngow river basin was truly a Shangri-La on earth where people lived with nature in harmony. The villagers of Karen Hill tribe grew enough rice explicitly for their consumption, caught fish from the river, and harvested food from the forest surrounding their village. Money was barely a necessity.
Fjallraven Thailand Trail is organized by people of Sob Moey district and The Forest Development Project, the Royal Initiated with support from Fjallraven and Nature Unlimited Foundation.
Fjallraven Thailand Trail is a part of the eco-tourism plan to create a revenue stream, from the forest itself, for villagers. By creating trail and bringing hikers on the ridges of the mountains and through the remaining untouched forest, which is a precious water resource for Mae Ngow river, we aim to visually show city people how important forests are to the river and to all of us. At the same time, this will show the villagers that the forest itself can create a “tangible benefit” for them. Sooner or later, the local villagers will realize a way to coexist and sustainably earn from the forest, without cutting down a single tree, and protect the remaining forest as their own valuable asset.
