Lisu Lodge, Chiang Mai
Thailand, North and East

Info : Lisu Lodge

Over the centuries many ancient tribes of Southern China migrated south to escape oppression, and five of these groups found their new home in Northern Thailand. Since that time, preservation of their culture has been a continuous struggle.

Today, as tourism in the region presents a way out of ‘traditional’ poverty and in many cases a way out of age-old identity, many of these tribes have found a positive way to balance the need for commerce with heritage.

Only an hour’s drive north of Chiang Mai, nestled in a rich green valley that time seems to have forgotten, is a Lisu tribal community that has managed to hold onto its cultural origins while benefiting from the progress of responsible tourism.

A key factor in this success story was the establishment of the Lisu Lodge over twelve years ago. This award-winning eco-lodge is a sanctuary for Lisu heritage, a direct link to the heart of this fascinating tribal group.

There’s a tranquil and soothing atmosphere surrounding the settlement that is staffed and managed by a Lisu tribe. Built in traditional style with an eye for western comforts, the lodges overlook the lush fields of the valley and serve as your base-camp for a magical blend of adventure, relaxation and insight.

Customer Feedback
Every guide, every driver, every tour, every pick-up etc was brilliant... We always felt we were in harmony with local community, not a voyeur looking in... Jake in Chang Mai was amazing. But everyone was first class.
