Day 1   – After breakfast, you will be picked up from the hotel in Chiang Mai and transferred  to the ‘base camp’ in Mae Wang where you will stay for the night.  You will have lunch and then begin your tuk tuk driver training. Once everyone has got to grips with the basics, you will head out on your first test drive to a local temple! In the evening it’s time to spend more time getting to know your Tuk Tuk and enjoying a great Northern Thai buffet dinner. Overnight at Khum Khun Wang Resort.  Meals include Lunch and Dinner.

Day 2  –  After breakfast you will go through more driver training, building on what you learned the day before and run through all the nitty-gritty of the trip ahead.  Then it’s time to venture a little further afield with a test drive through small country roads to a fantastic elephant sanctuary.  Here you will find out about the history of the elephants and the sanctuary.  After lunch you will be able to feed and bathe the elephants in the local river.  In the late afternoon you will have more driving practice as you head back to the base camp for dinner.  Overnight at Khu Khun Wang Resort.  Meals included: breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Day 3  – After an early breakfast you will be starting your tour – heading along small country roads towards Thailand’s highest mountain, Doi Inthanon. Your guide will be in the lead Tuk Tuk and you will travel in convoy with a support vehicle at the rear.  The first 20-30km of the route is simple with gentle curving roads where you will see beautiful scenery and small hill tribe villages where you will be able to stop for coffee and snacks.  Lunch will be in a roadside snack bar – real Northern Thai style.  If you’re feeling confident you can continue go up to the top of Doi Inthanon – your trusty Tuk Tuk can make it! Around mid afternoon you will arrive at your accommodation for the next two nights.  Meals included : breakfast and dinner.

Day 4 – You will be giving the Tuk Tuk’s a well deserved rest today and exploring the National Park on foot. Accompanied by an expert trekking guide you will explore the stunning forest around the area on a trek of around 8-9km (but with some hills!) which takes in great vista’s and the obligatory waterfall.  Lunch is provided.  You will return to your accommodation around mid to late afternoon.  Meals included : Breakfast, lunch and supper.
