Tips for safety
If you have children and the number of groups is more than 3-4 people, it is advisable to go with a guide and they should have a helper.
For water walks and rainy paths, we recommend bringing a nice pair of hiking sandals with good toe protection. See “Trekking Shoes” on the page for more information. What to bring trekking in Mae Hong Son
To be sure, prepare your items in a backpack and you will have the ability to carry them on your own. Other luggage can be left at the hotel or the travel agent’s office for unused luggage after the trek.
Walked at a moderate pace, not too fast or too slow.
Each person’s offer is not the same. Depends on expenses such as duration, meals, and transportation. The cost will be divided into the price per person.
I recommend not bargaining because it will be reduced from things you should have or items on the tour that must have. It is not recommended to go on cheap trekking tours. This means the risk that you will be responsible for your travel.
