Northern Thailand: nature

The north of Thailand is a popular trekking destination – and for good reason. The mountain scenery is absolutely stunning, tour agencies abound and trips are cheap. Luckily there are so many places to go that it’s pretty easy to get away from the tourist hot-spots and enjoy peace and serenity. We could easily spend months exploring, and not experience all that northern Thailand has to offer.

is the road less travelled this way?
