Pen is an amazing host. The bungalows are basic but cosy, with a lovely deck area outside to sit and read. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained. The food is AMAZING. Pen kindly took us on a day trek to some caves. It was a beautiful walk and a special experience to see the caves without hordes of other tourists. Pen clearly has a passion for nature which made it more fun. Thank you Pen!

Our family of five (kids age 14, 12, 7) had an amazing adventure — highly recommend staying with Pen! Ban Thom Lod is a challenge to get to but that is what makes it so special and off the beaten track. As a Shan village about 10 miles from the Burma border, the rural misty mountain scenery is beautiful. Pen is the perfect host and expert guide who grew up in this village and has been leading treks for over 20 years. The three traditional bungalows in her garden are spotless and all food and coffee is sourced within a few miles of the homestay — everything served is organic, healthy, and tasty. Highly recommend ordering her “off the menu” Shan food, coconut ice cream, fresh juices, and breakfast muesli. Pen also prepares homeopathic supplements and teas from local plants and herbs — just ask her. In terms of activities, do the 15km hike from the village of Mae Lana back to Ban Thom Lod — great views along the mountain ridges and you also pass through picturesque hilltribe villages. Another all day activity is to have Pen guide you through the lesser known local trails for great scenic views, swimming, and caving. Our family did both and loved it. If you are willing to make the extra effort to get here (it is worth it), then stay with Pen. Send her a WhatsApp to set up your stay +66 87 175 4384.

We were highly recommend to stay at pens by a friend and we were so glad we did! Pen, her husband and her staff are so friendly and helpful. First of all the food, coffee and juices are amazing! We even brought some of her coffee beans to take home. Secondly, our wooden hut was so cute! The bed was comfy, the room was so clean and had a mosquito net over the bed to make sure the bugs from outside did not get in! We will 100% be returning and recommending to others! Our advice, STAY STAY STAY!

Can’t recommend this place enough. Unfortunately we booked another place to stay without knowing about Pen Cave but that didn’t keep us from eating 4 times in a row in their cozy and beautiful restaurant. What a gem! Both breakfast, lunch and dinner were amazing here. They grow their own veggies, bake fresh (and delicious!!!) croissants in the morning and serve the best curries. Don’t visit the Lod Cave and surroundings without making a stop here.
