We arrived in Chiang Mai via overnight bus from Bangkok and we had not booked accommodation! The bmp had been recommended to us by a friend so we headed there. When we arrived (bare in mind it was 6:30am) we were sat down by Mr A and practically forced into booking a 3 day trekking trip in order to have a good deal on our room rate. When shown to our room it looked fine once he left we discovered the beds were old and uncomfortable and also the shower did not have any running hot water. We went for breakfast where we were ignored by the waiting staff in the restaurant/bar and had to ask a few times before anyone came to serve us. The next day we left for our trek unaware that you would need to be an athlete in order to be able to complete! We walked for 6 hours through rivers and vertices jungle in flip flop before we reached camp for the night. The second day we walked for 6 hours again this time it was a combination of up and down hill to the middle of nowhere! On the last day we final got to go elephant riding and bamboo rafting which has to be the highlight of all the 3 days. (Also I'm sure we were served rat for dinner one of the nights) when we arrived back to bmp we were given the darkest room on earth when we woke up in the morning we were unaware of the time it could have been the middle of the night! We checked out and found a nicer hotel round the corner for cheaper! Please watch out for the jungle trek unless you are physically able to do it! There is no turning back and no-one to rescue you!
