Chiang Dao Nest Tours & Trekking - About Us
We are a family operation namely , Stuart (English) and Wicha (Thai), Joseph our 6 year old son, our Daughter Alice born August 2006, and Meaow, our cat.

While we are a small organisation we now have a number of trusted contacts and people we employ, along with considerable experience ourselves so that we are confident of providing a memorable experience for people who let us take care of their North Thailand experiences.

We operate from our small slice of mountain paradise in the hills of Chiang Dao. We have a guest house - Chiang Dao Nest Mini Resort which consists of 12 Bungalows across 2 sites.

The tours and treks were originally started to provide activities for our guests, and as a way to attract people to our place. It also gave us a great excuse for exploring this beautiful and fascinating area.

All of them originally were private only and started in Chiang Dao. Now due to the requests we received , and to make things easier for people, they are now available from Chiang Mai.

We have now also started to do some small non-private group tours /treks - this is partly again because of the number of requests we had previously, and partly because the people in the villages we visit enjoy the income, and asked us to provide a few more visitors. We think that by limiting the numbers to 8 people that the impact is minimal. We are monitoring this.

If you are looking for the cheapest trek, this is not the place to look. We would rather pay the guides and carriers well, have small groups, give donations, ensure people have plenty of good quality food, and visit beautiful areas even if it means paying a National Park entrance fee.

We only employ local people. This does mean that their level of English is basic but, while we are trying to get them to improve, they can still communicate, are very knowledgeable and friendly, and we would rather locals get the benefit of having visitors.

As we live locally to the trekking areas, and accompany some of the tours, we can monitor what is happening. We intend to go to mostly lesser-visited villages. If the villages we go to do get a number of visitors we will indicate it on this website.

When we first started arranging treks we were very reluctant to do the "hilltribe thing". We were more interested in nature walks and going up the mountain. We stayed in hilltribe accommodation because that was the only place to stay for miles around. However, we found that even though the people who signed up for the treks were not looking for a hilltribe experience, they ended up being made very welcome and having an enjoyable time in the village. We also got to know some of the villagers personally and found them to be responsible reliable and, more importantly, fun!
