Staying at Sakad Dee Homestay in Pua
Ban Sakad is a hill-tribe village at about 1000m high in the mountains of Doi Phu Kha National Park in Nan province. Just 20km from Pua town. But a steep ride over a small but good road. Well good mostly, but during last raining season there were 2 big landslides along the one and only road to the village. The village is famous for it's tea leaves production, that is not only uses to make tea but also to make small balls to chew on. When I did visit this village about 2 years ago I thought "Wow stunning village and a stunning location". And also "Great place for a homestay", but I was told by locals that the village is actually part of Doi Phu Kha National Park so no homestay's. But for some reason that seems to have changed and now there are 2 homestay's in this lovely village. So we did stay one night at "Sakad Dee Homestay". A very basic accommodation that includes dinner & breakfast. The homestay owner also organises tours like a Walking Tour in the village (by a young student from the village), a jungle hiking tour (even possible with overnight in the jungle), a tour to see the coffee & tea production. We had a great stay here, a great place to go of the beaten track. For more information have a look at Sakaddee Homestay in Pua, Nan - Thailand.
