Limeleaf eco-lodge is located some 70 km north of Chiang Mai in the hills near Khun Chae National Park, 1100 meters above sea level, in pristine jungle forest.

Eco Standard Award 2014

We have different types of chalets, 2 main lodges, a steam tent, a spring-fed plunge pool, a pool table, fresh mountain spring water, great tasting wood fire cooking, and fantastic views.

Our Goal

To create a life for us, our family and friends, based on love and respect for nature. At Limeleaf following sound ecological and sustainable practices is a priority. We limit the number of visitors staying with us to reduce the impact on the land and the Lahu community we share the area with. We see ourselves as custodians of the land. 

Kick back, relax and enjoy the view

Limeleaf eco-retreat

Limeleaf resides north of Chiang Mai next to Khun Chae National Park. It is 1100 meters above sea level, near Doi Modt (Ant Mountain) where the Black Lahu hill tribe lives in pristine jungle forest.

  • Cool air, clear skies during the day and star filled night.

  • Astonishing views across 3 mountain ranges and into the village.

  • Plenty of local birds and animals, and hardly any mosquitos due to the height!

Limeleaf eco-lodge is perfect

For trekking, birdwatching or discovering the local flora and fauna, either alone or as a group. We can arrange camping locations in the area and a local guide for your trip. 


Explore the environment and visit nearby villages. Gather food in the woods as the Black Lahu tribe does. Learn about the different local herbs, medicines and food. Or learn how to cook like a local, on a wood fire with bamboo utensils. Or go for a swim in the pool or at the waterfall. Whatever you feel like.

Limeleaf is an organic farm neighbouring Black Lahu hill tribe farms. Black Lahu farming is also organic; they use natural fertilizers, no pesticides or chemicals, the water is clean and so is the environment. The local grown seasonal food is served at the lodge. And the coffee from these fields is phenomenal. Freshly roasted and served at the lodge too!

Limeleaf eco-lodge is unique

We are ‘off the grid’ (but do have solar power) and it gives you the perfect opportunity to relax and take it easy, or go back to nature and immerse into hill tribe living.

What our customers say:

Vittoria de Franchis

Staying at Limeleaf was one of the best experiences I’ve had in Thailand. If you seek for some peace and silence that will be your heaven. A secluded spot in the jungle with breathtaking views, organic food and the company of Noi. Tip!


We stayed 3 nights at Limeleaf and really loved the place. All the bungalows have their own unique style, and were handbuilt by the family. We enjoyed the peacefulness of the place and were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful nature surrounding us.

Aude Chuseqa

Amazing stay here up in the mountains. The view from the lodge is beautiful. We enjoyed some cooking with Noi and Pla. All food come from the garden and it’s delicious ! It’s a little paradise on earth. We were sad to leave this peacefull place.
