4 x 4 ADVENTURE ALONG THE OPIUM TRAIL
      (2 Days / 1 Night) 
 
        As part of the Thai government’s fight against opium production, new farm-to-market roads are being cut along the ridges of the Thai-Burma border. Hill tribe villages participating in the crop-substitution program now have access by four-wheel drive to the markets they need. You, too, can travel along these spectacular routes and see villages which were formerly accessible only by the mule trains of Khun Sa, the notorious opium warlord. Visit the homes of numerous tribal groups along the way to Ban Hin Taek, opium headquarters turned development center.

        Learn how the hill peoples are being integrated into Thai national life. Visit schools, see village water systems, walk in the flower gardens, which bring additional income to these remote places. Meet the people who have dedicated their careers to both development and the preservation of the natural beauty of the Thai-Burma watershed areas. Experience the unforgettable views across two countries at Ban Hua Mae Kham, a Lisu village perched on the edge of the border. This two-day, one night trip begins in Chiang Rai and may be extended to include other touring options offered by Golden TriangleTours.
