    Yes definitely. September is usually rainy but then you wear a thin rain jacket or poncho and/or carry a small umbrella. The upside is it's not as unbearably hot as March-May when the inland forests dry up and turn very dusty. In September it'll all be green and happening.

    Trekking in most popular up north, obviously Chiang Mai plus more remote towns like Mae Hong Son. Cost and quality affects the price a lot, with private guided treks around $50/day and group-based (6-12pax) regular treks around $50 for 3days/2nights. It's good to shop around a bit but don't book until you're in the area, preferably face-to-face with the operator and guide.

    Bring some decent shoes with good tread, as slipping around in mud can be a hassle. The trek organiser can advise you what else to bring and can store luggage for you during the trek. Many guesthouses combine their rooms with trekking business which makes it easy to have a room waiting upon your return.
