    Hello!

    For those of you that have taken a trekking tour from Chiang Mai, which tour companies would you recommend for a 2 or 3 day trek and what would be considered a reasonable price?
    I'm not looking to skimp on price but also don't want to be overcharged!

    Also, would I be better off organising it once I'm there or are there some companies I can book online with? Will be there early January.

    Many thanks!

    I highly recommend Pooh Eco Travel. The tours are much different than the usual package you find at many of the tour spots in Chiang Mai, and don't include the bamboo rafting and elephant riding which I abhor. Rather you hike with some nice people, stay overnight with a friendly local family, if you're in the mood some serious drinking can take place, and then some more great food and so on. An adventure and a very knowledgeable guide. The price was a little higher than most other treks, but a more authentic experience. If you try to arrange ahead of time that may make for a larger group (they max at 6 I think) so that you wouldn't have to pay as much per person.

    I'd rather ride an elephant and a raft than visit some smelly bat cave. Those tours dont sound very good at all.

    Great suggestion from casey.

    Another option might be to check out the trekking tours on offer at Ginny House in Chiang Mai and let them know what kind of tour you are seeking. If you do, say hello to Captain Bob for me. Ginny House is listed on Travelfish, or you can go directly to their website at: http://www.chiang-mai.org/ginny-house.html

    Regards.
