I have been told that up in Chang Mai in north of thailand has some great treks available. Can anyone shed any light on this topic? Is it worth doing? it sounds like fun.

Its pretty well touristed by now. There are 100000000 places that will take you out into the jungle, but you are better off in Laos, in Luang Nam Tha or thereabouts

Living in Chiang Mai I know a couple of good private trekking companies in Chiang Mai that take you far away from the normal tourist crowds to enjoy real rain forest, hill tribes and culture. They are more expensive than the normal commercial trekking companies but well worth it for the experience. I don't want to SPAM here so if you send me an email message I will give you their URL.
