Ban Mae Kampong Village Tours

Ban Mae Kampong Village
Nestled among the forested mountains of Northern Thailand, Ban Mae Kampong village epitomizes traditional Thai culture with wooden cottages and ancient agricultural practices. The village is in the vanguard of sustainable tourism: Visitors enjoy homestays, jungle ziplines, and hiking routes through tea plantations, while villagers maintain their traditional way of life.

The Basics

Tours of Ban Mae Kampong village allow travelers to stray from the beaten path and see a side of Northern Thailand that differs greatly from Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. Stay overnight in the village with a homestay program, or visit Mae Kampong on a day trip, which typically includes a trek to the 7-tiered Nam Tok Mae Kampong waterfall. The Flight of the Gibbon zipline route, which comprises 18 ziplines suspended high above the treetops, is located close to the village. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • A visit to Ban Mae Kampong is a must for travelers looking to get off the beaten path.
  • Hiking enthusiasts should arrange to visit Chae Son National Park, home to mountain trails and waterfalls.
  • Steep and hilly terrain mean that the village is largely inaccessible to wheelchair users.

How to Get There
Ban Mae Kampong village is located 31 miles (50 kilometers) from the center of Chiang Mai and is easily reachable by car or scooter. The drive is spectacularly scenic but only recommended for experienced drivers as it features multiple sharp bends and steep descents. Most travelers opt for the convenience of a tour that includes round-trip transport.

When to Get There 
If you want to avoid the rain, the driest time to visit Northern Thailand is between December and March. Although sometimes inconvenient, the rainy season has its merits: Scenery is at its greenest and waterfalls at their most impressive. To appreciate Mae Kampong in all its emerald splendor, visit during April or May, when the rainy season is just gaining momentum.

Staying Overnight in Ban Mae Kampong Village
Mae Kampong homestays are a great way to gain deeper insight into local culture and experience Thai hospitality firsthand. Homestays can be tailored to include three home-cooked meals and tours of the pocket-size village, which is the epitome of mountain tranquility.
