Motorcycle Tour To Thailand's Hill Tribe Villages

We've presented this Motorcycle Tour as a Photography trip but you don't need to be a photographer, your iPhone will capture stunning images.  For pro and amateur photographers this motorbike tour offers exceptional opportunities for beautiful natural landscapes and portraits of the photogenic hill tribes. 

You begin from Chiang Mai city, Northern Thailand riding old logging trails high into the Shan Hills through stunning mountain scenery.  We join the Burma  border and ride parallel with it before looping around Doi Inthanon, Thailand's highest mountain and returning back to Chiang Mai.  Accommodation is unique to the region and one of the highlights of the trip!  

Stay in a traditional remote Karen Hill tribe village where the local people follow a simple relaxed way of life with an opportunity to spend the day with the Karen people during their work and even help with cooking in a bamboo hut over a log fire and many other traditional Karen activities.

Visit 'Little Yunnan' on the Burma border a region settled by the Kuo Min Tan fighters from Yunnan Province China, after the Communist take over, now a massive tea growing region and a village with a quintessential Yunnanese feel, a very memorable evening with delicious Yunnan food and home brewed fruit wine. 


We believe this trip to be one of the most unique motorcycle tours in Thailand.  Our vast experience of the region from 20 years of dirt bike tours has enabled us to build a very special relationship with the minority tribes  in remote regions. You will ride fantastic roads the majority of the time but to get to the unseen places a few roads will be unsealed but no problem for the adventure bikes we will be using.
