The accommodation in Soppong village are all within easy walking distance of the bus station with the exception of Lisu Mountain, which is out of Soppong. Traffic is rarely heavy, so staying on the main road isn't really as bad as it may sound.

Tham Lod

Ban Tham Lod is a charming and very peaceful Shan village close to the famous cave of the same name. It's only 13 km from Soppong, so it's easily doable in a half day, though there is accommodation in the form of the long standing and well known cave Lodge on the edge of the village. The road is now sealed and makes for a slightly bumpy but scenic drive through mostly teak forests with hill tribe villages close by. There is no public transport, so if you do not have your own transport you would have to phone Cave Lodge to organise a pick up or try to find a motorbike taxi in the village.

Ban Nong Thong

A fairly large and prosperous (that is, more concrete than teak or bamboo) Lisu village, Ban Nong Thong is just out of Soppong Village. Walk around 500m towards MHS, turn left, and it's up that road another 500m or so. It's not one of the more attractive hill tribe villages around but locals are friendly enough and there's a small village shop where you can buy a canned drink and while away a bit of time with the very friendly Alema, the shopkeeper. At the top of the village is the Lisu Homestay.

Ban Nam Rin

Ban Nam Rin, a large, but still fairly traditional Lisu village, lies just off the main road some 8 km from Soppong, back towards Pai. (Buses will drop you off at the entrance to the village.) Not really a lot happens in the village, apart from the very agreeable Lisu Lodge, but it is well situated for plenty of good hikes in the surrounding hills.
