Good Atmosphere & Comfortable Accommodation
The Aerie Lodge formerly Soppong River Inn opened its first rooms in 1998 welcoming families and backpackers of all genders and age. Situated on Lang River, our terrace overlooking the river with services from The Riverside Bar creates a perfect vibe to relax and chill after a long day of adventuring.
We can help arranging activities for you to enjoy during your stay. Our good friends at Cave Lodge specialises in Caving, Kayaking, and Trekking tours.
Our local guides can also take you sightseeing experiencing the multicultural villages.

There are many Lisu and Lahu villages within an hour’s walk of the Inn. Most villages are also accessible by motorbike and car as well for easy access. There are several loop roads that pass a variety of villages and offer spectacular views. The mountain road that passes through Tham Lod Shan village, Ban Yappanair, Ban Mae Lana and Ban Jabo is particularly good. This route takes only a few hours and is well worth the effort. Day trekking to local villages or caves makes for a long day, but a hot shower and comfortable beds await you back at the Inn at the end of the day.
Tham Nam Lod
Tham Lod is the premier attraction in Pang Mapha. This enormous river tunnel was carved over millions of years by the Nam Lang, the river that flows past the River Inn.
