Great experience and all worth it, just don't expect all your home luxuries. Your safety and wellbeing is their prioirity and really great guides! The 4hour tuktuk ride from Mae Sot to Umphang was a little difficult for me I am sensitive for travel sickness. The only thing I would improve is having a rain plan for the tents we were a little unlucky since it does not rain a lot but the provided tents weren't waterproof, although in the end we did not sleep wet since the rain stopped in time. Tip: maybe take a small trekking cushion with you, it is a wonderous luxury.
Kurt and the other guides were tremendous, becoming like a family in a very short time. They constantly pointed out natural attractions and explained the environment we hiked through. They prepared excellent meals, made sure we always had enough water, laughed with us around the camp fire and encouraged us to become more adventurous while exploring the beautiful Thi So Lo waterfalls. The trekking was more strenuous than I thought it would be however, it was also much more rewarding than I had imagined. Throughout it all, the guides were accommodating, helpful and kind to each of us, regardless of our level of ability. The only disappointment I had was the rafting trip. The guides did the paddling. I was thinking that we would do that. However, that was of little consequence as we then forged out way into the mountains of northern Thailand and reveled in the adventures that came before us. I recommend this highly and especially with Kurt and his fellow guides.
Mind blowing views and amazing experience that we'll never forget. We did some very nice pictures, but real life experience is so much better. Crew does outstanding job and goes above and beyond to make sure you have good time. Good thai food from fresh ingredients.
Don't expect luxuries, conditions can be rough at times. Trip is not very easy, but it's not super hard, expect 2-4h of trekking a day, some of that uphill. If you can live with that - no excuses, you should go!
A challenging and unusual trip!
