Accommodation Pick-Up then Elephant Rides

The Village of Hakka
Before lunch, you will be taken to the Village of Hakka, where you will be able to meet the Hakkas or Hakka Han people. They are Han Chinese whose homes are mainly from the provincial regions of Fujian, Guangdong, Guang Xi, Jiang Xi, Sichuan, Hunan, Guizhou, and Hainan. The characters for the name Hakka means guest families and unlike the other Han groups present, the Hakka Hans are not named after counties, provinces, a city, or any other geographical region.
There is no record or history of the arrival of the Hakka descendants in Thailand, but they are believed to have originated from the islands that border the Yellow River namely Henan, Hubei, and Shanxi. In a succession of migrations, the Hakka people have traveled and settled in their current areas located in the southern portion of China, and a large number of these people have moved overseas to different countries all over the world; the approximate number of Hakkas worldwide is about eighty million.
After visiting the Hakka village and having lunch and a few moments of relaxation, you will start the trekking route and walk for about an hour to reach the area cascading waterfalls that will mesmerize you right when you lay eyes on the stunning area. Here, you will be given the chance to cool off, take some pictures, and of course to freshen up. After relaxing and admiring the surroundings, you will once again take another walk that usually lasts for forty minutes until you reach the white water rafting area where you will be able to immerse in the fun and exciting activity as the day slowly comes to an end.
White Water Rafting
The white water rafting tour usually lasts up to thirty to forty minutes but it actually depends on the river flow rate and current. Because of Chiang Mai tropically warm weather, steep mountain ranges, and its breathtaking views, the region is definitely one place that is perfect for white water rafting.
Once the thrilling and exciting white water rafting adventure has finished, you can experience how the locals in the past used to travel and transport goods from one area to another, so to complete the One Day Adventure Trek, you will go through the river via bamboo rafting to explore the rest of the area surroundings. After this, you will reach the pick-up point which is the last stop for the whole trip before heading back to Chiang Mai as the trekking adventure comes to an end.
