Day 01: CHIANG MAI – KHUM LANNA (L,D)
Pick up at your hotel in Chiang Mai. Up into the countryside you go to the local town of Prao, scenically located in a wide valley full of rice fields. Somehow this valley doesn’t appear on most itineraries and it remains somewhat of a hidden secret. Your base will be Khum Lanna lodge, a collection of Thai teak wooden houses in a tropical garden setting along a stream. This is rice-country and it is very interesting to get to know all about this process from the experts. Pick your way through the herbal garden and take what you need to prepare your own dinner; in an outdoor kitchen you learn the secrets of Thai cooking and prepare several dishes. Your amazing dinner will have an herbal massage treatment as a dessert! Our overnight will be in comfortable teak-wooden rooms around a communal veranda.
