Things you need to prepare
Belongings for two days
We joined Tee for an amazing treck deep inside the jungle. We did not encounter other local/tourist on the track and the nature seemed completely untouched. Our guide knew his way around for sure and provided us precisely what we asked for. If you’re not used to the climate and/or this kind of treking be sure to pack accordingly (good shoes, pants, raincoats, etc.)
It was fantastic and we would do it all over again.
Tee is a very nice person. He is very responsive when you are booking to provide you a maximum of information about the trekking. You can leave close to the local population which has been the best experience of my trip in Thailand.
For Trekking Lovers
This is the best place if you love to do trekking
we had an amazing experience in Chiang Mai while exploring wonderful non-touristic spots
We didn’t do a tour with Tee, but we stayed at his hut for one night and had a wonderful time. It was really nice to stay at his place, because it was quite and peaceful in the middle of the jungle on a small farm with beautiful view. Tee was really friendly and we had a lot of fun. In the evening Tee showed us some magic tricks that were really cool. Still don’t know how he did it! The first tricks were easy, but the tricks with cards and the trick with a ring were mind blown. I would recommend to it to have him as company if you want to see the nature around Chiang Mai, because he is just a really cool guy in a lovely environment.
Best guy in town
Tee is definitely the best guy in town! Also because his town is very small and located in the middle of the jungle and because he is one of the few that speaks English fluently, but most because he is just a very nice and funny guy. We stayed with Tee only for one night (while multiple day tours with Tee are also possible). But even so, we are happy to have met this wonderful guy and that we could have a sleep at his cosy jungle hut. Please check him out and see what is possible at teewatertown.com
