Children going to school in Lay Tong Ku village, June 2006
Our trips are not just about nature or adventure. We carefully design the trip plan to include as much of the things
Umphang has to offer as possible. It is nature, soft adventure, culture, environment, understanding, inter cultural
communication, survival, education as well as knowing yourself.
In the begining or end of the trip you can overnight at our resort located in No Aye village - 1 km from Umphang town.
Our resort rooms have electricity, fan, private bathroom with running piped water as well as hot shower. The restaurant
in the resort will cook delicious food for you. Water boiler, coffee and tea are available.
Or staying in a resort in the town is also possible.
Our private tours for foreign tourists are custom-made depending on the number of people, the time of travel, number of days,
and safety consideration. We occasionally run survey or research trips to new places. All private group trips are of small size
fewer than 10 people. Since most tourists are first time visitors it is necessary to communicate a lot before the starting of
trip. Expectation of the tourists, the reality and un-expected encounters must be understood between the parties.
We try our best to carefully arrange and prepare to have good hygiene and cleanliness, but the tourists also need to understand
the limitations and nature of the tours they are taking.
