Mae Sariang Things to Do: 6 reviews and 21 photos
Nestled in mountains 1 hr from Mae Sariang town, are Lawa and Karen hilltribe villages where you can stay overnight at a homestay.
From Mae Sariang it is a very scenic drive along winding roads up to the mountains which are 1,200m above sea level. With stunning vistas along the way and views of rolling mountains and paddy fields. These villages are not well known about so it is an authentic experience of Karen and Lawa hilltribe culture.
The homestay is with hilltribe families in their traditional wooden/bamboo stilt houses, conditions are basic but it offers a genuine insight into how they live.
The Lawa hilltribe is hardly talked about, but are thought to be the first inhabitants of Northern Thailand long before the Karen or mainland Thais arrived. Over the years their history has been lost but due to their ancestry here remain an important but often overlooked group.
