Hilltribe villages provide the chance to observe diverse cultures and languages. Villages that are closer to and have greater contact with towns include the Hmong (Meo) on Pui Mountain, and the Mae Sa Mai Hmong on the Mae Rim-Samoeng Rd.

If you are interested in observing hilltribe villages whose traditions, customs, and vocations are still intact and also in getting the chance to experience the adventure of the jungle, you must travel further up into the mountains. There are several tour guide companies in Chiang Mai that provide trekking services. Most treks last for more than a day, and involve spending the night in a designated hilltribe village. Prices vary by facilities provided and destinations.
