The Mae Sariang Loop
3 Days 2 Night Budget Motorcycle Tour - Mae Sariang - Thailand
Karen Hill Tribe
Traditional way of Life
The Mae Sariang Loop
This motorcycle tour offers an insight into the lives of the Karen Hill tribe staying in a traditional village where the only tourists are our tour groups. Tucked away high in the Shan Hills and surrounded by lush forests we visit the Karen Hill Tribe lodge run by the Karen people.
Accommodation is simple yet delightful with no wifi or telephone service, a chance to unwind from the stress of daily life immersing yourself in a unique and relaxed traditional culture. If we are lucky they may put on a cultural dancing show for us which is always good fun.
Available Tour Options
Karen Hill Tribe Lodge
Operated by the Karen people of the village the proceeds from the lodge go toward the upkeep of the village and school tranportation for the children.
During the months of November to January due to it's elevation temperatures can plummet to single digits at night demanding the evening drinks to be spent by a roaring wood fire.
Multiple shared bathrooms with hot showers. Rooms are small bamboo walled with very comfortable beds and Indian cotton bed linen.
The lodge has been perfectly designed for travellers to experience traditional hilltribe life but with unique, comfortable accommodation. Its more like 'Glamping' without tents.
