Depart by local truck to Ban Nai Soi, a Karen Hill tribe village. There are approximately 300,000 Karens in Thailand, making them by far the most populous minority group in the country. The Karen tribe inhabits many areas of western and northern Thailand and can be divided into several sub-groups. The Padaung, the famous "long-neck" people whose women traditionally wear many tight bronze rings around their necks, are another of the many sub-groups. The women of the Padaung stretch their necks from very early age. It is a practice applied only to women born during full moon and it is believed that taking off the rings will result in certain death. Some of the women have up to 25 rings. The wealthier the family, the more rings the women have. Then you will embark on a one-hour trek through the forest on elephant 
back and enjoy the scenery along the Pai River during a one-hour 
long-tail boat ride.
