Join us for a kathina trip in a forest monastery, Wat Phra Chao Ton Luang (abbot: Luang Por Thong Daeng) in Chiang Mai. Experience living in a beautiful and inspiring Children Home in the mountains at Dhammagiri Foundation, in one of the poorest and most beautiful parts of Thailand in Mae Hong Son. Children there are raised based on the good values of the Dhamma and guided by the forest monks. Visit hill tribes and present gifts to the impoverished villagers and school children. Take a glimpse into the cave where forest monks practise in, a bamboo-raft ride into a mysterious bat cave and enjoy the scenic views of nature along the way.
We will fly to Chiang Mai for a 2-night stay, take a domestic flight to Mae Hong Son for a 2-night stay at Dhammagiri Foundation, travel in tourist vans all the way back to Chiang Mai, stopping a night in Thamlod. Please note that there is a 3-hour winding road journey in the mountains of Mae Hong Son. Visits to certain places require trekking and is optional.
