2-3 days Survival Trek in Doi Innthanon National Park Area

Are you tough enough to go on our Survival Trek? Interested in nature, agriculture or jungle survival techniques?

Go deep into the Thailand jungle and learn how to survive! Trek, cook, explore and enjoy seeing nature at it's most alive and exciting.

Our jungle guides will help you learn about living in the wild. They will help you to pick wild herbs, wild mushrooms and vegetables for cooking in the fire.

The fire itself is made from a bed of leaves. The food and herbs are laid down on top of the leaves and then surrounded and covered by other leaves to create an oven. The moisture from the leaves and the water inside the vegetables steam cooks the food, the herbs infuse the food with exotic aromas, and the nature's oven seals the heat inside. Thai sticky rice is also prepared and cooked inside bamboo on their own fire.

Make shift accommodation is also build locally for an overnight stay.

This trek only operates between October-June, during the dry season.

Special thanks to Bruna and Manu for donating the photos from their recent trek with us (seen on the left).
