After picking you up at 08:30 from our guesthouse in Chiang Rai town (Baan Pordeedin - our social enterprise venture), we'll drive to our foundation headquarters in the heart of the countryside (approximately 16km from town). Here we'll show you a short video about our work, and answer any questions you may have. Our guide will then take you on a trek through the forest, visiting a number of local hilltribe villages, and taking a deserved break at a local waterfall in the afternoon. Lunch will be cooked on the trail, using traditional farmers' methods - machete, bamboo, fire and know-how. During the afternoon, you will also learn about traditional weaving techniques and, over the course of the day, will come to appreciate the incredible versatility of bamboo. At the end of the programme our car will pick you up and return to Chiang Rai town, dropping you back at our guesthouse. You will learn about hill tribe cultures, traditions, and local flora & fauna. This is not a 'prepared' tour, so you will see villagers going about daily life as usual. Visiting a variety of tribal communities, as well as the beautiful rural setting, we think you will have a wonderful time.
Sawasdee krap! I'm Thellie, and have worked with our NGO since 2007. I live with my Thai wife and children in a Karen tribe village, just a mile from the foundation. I came to The Mirror Foundation to volunteer for a month, and fell in love with the place, the people, the ethos, and the work... been here ever since! My work is very varied, making every day different and interesting, and it also keeps me on my toes. If I am busy one of our staff will meet you at the guesthouse with our guide. Our staff and guides include: Moo, Aom, J'Ha, J'Ubo, Yaka, Akong, Manop

You visit our foundation nestled in a valley, and a variety of hilltribe communities, showing everyday life. Our Akha and Lahu hilltribe guides come from these villages and know the surrounding area intimately. A secluded waterfall, popular with locals, gives you a chance to rest and cool off after the morning's trek. The communities are a slice of real life, not tourist traps or model villages. What you see is what you get.
