Get off the beaten path and learn how to live in harmony with the jungle. On this private trek you will relax and learn some jungle survival skills from knowledgeable indigenous Karen hill tribe guides. UNPLUG. RECONNECT. Karen people have lived peacefully in the in the mountains for generations, combining hunting, gathering and farming to survive. On this trek your guides will teach you to return to indigenous roots and enjoy the simple pleasures of jungle life. On this Chai Lai Sisters tour you will experience what life is like without wifi, supermarkets, factory farms, and 7-Elevens on every corner. A hill tribe village might "poor" to you but we feel rich to live in the beautiful natural landscape. Our wealth is not how much stuff we accumulate but how little we need to me happy. The forest provides everything that we need. Karen houses are traditionally constructed from bamboo with roofs made of grass or leaves. Your guide can teach you to make a basic shelter using only these items and a machete. Karen women still know how to make their own clothes completely by hand and without electricity, by weaving on a back loom. It takes time to master but you will have a chance to try it out. SOME OF THE WILDERNESS SKILLS YOU CAN LEARN: Identify wild edible plants Cook and eat in the jungle Make cooking utensils from banana leaves Identify medicinal plants Find water in bamboo
My name is Nukul and I am from the Karen hill tribe, born and raised in a mountain village in the Thai jungle. I was taught the cultural traditions of my ancestors and my people, including how to live harmoniously with the jungle. Through trekking, I empower myself and other Karen guides to preserve our traditions by sharing them with guests. I am a licensed tour guide and have been working in the ethical cultural tourism for over two and a half years. If I cannot be with you, one of our other guides Zen or Golo- both licensed knowledgeable guides- will be hosting you on this experience.
All of the proceeds from this trek go to support Daughters Rising, an anti-human trafficking, women's empowerment non-profit based in Northern Thailand. Their mission is to empower at-risk ethnic minority girls through education, vocational training and outreach to end exploitation in their communities and break the cycle of intergenerational poverty.
