Mae Kampong Village Tours

Tucked away in the forested hills just outside of Chiang Mai sits Mae Kampong Village, a high-altitude village founded more than 100 years ago as a tea orchard. Today, it’s still famous for producing pickled tea leaves, which in Northern Thailand are chewed much like betel nut.

Within the village, dozens of wooden cottages hug the hillside amid the dense forest. In recent years, some of the villagers have launched a homestay program to give visitors insight into the traditional local culture. A homestay in the village typically includes a night of accommodation in a family’s home along with three home-cooked meals.

From the village, it’s possible to trek to Nam Tok Mae Kampong (a seven-tiered waterfall) or the Mae On cave. The village also serves as a base for whitewater rafting and zip lining through the canopy.

Practical Info

Mae Kampong Village is located 30 miles (48 kilometers) outside of Chiang Mai along Route 1317 heading toward San Kamphaeng.
