Chiang Mai Whitewater Rafting and Zipline Tour
Your guide and driver will meet you at the hotel at 0800 for your Chiang Mai Whitewater Rafting and Zipline tour. It will be an exciting and entertaining day during which we also will visit the Elephant Poo Poo Paper Park and meet the Padaung aka the Long Neck Karen.
Drive to the Mae Taeng area. We will take a backroad to Kaeng Keud where you will start your whitewater rafting trip on the Mae Taeng (Taeng River). After the necessary instructions you will board the rubber boat and brave some exciting rapids. Great fun. After this we will drive to the Mae Sa Valley where Eagle Track, an exciting zipline adventure, is located. Along the way we stop at the Elephant Poo Poo Paper Park. Elephant Poo Poo Paper Park is an eco-friendly, naturally built, outdoor museum park that introduces and explains the unique steps involved in making our much talked about paper products from elephant poop fibers! Your guide will explain about the plight of the Asian elephant.
Enjoy a Thai lunch before you get safety instructions and put on your harness. The adventure starts! The Eagle Track Gold package is the ultimate adrenaline rush with 16 ziplines to fly down at up to 30 kilometers an hour. In total 35 platforms afford a wonderful view of the breathtaking scenery. Four abseils descending from some of the highest platforms deliver a rush of a completely different kind. You will get over your fear of heights quickly! Our wooden balancing beams will keep things interesting as you move between platforms. See if you can keep your balance on the log. A nature walk connects the end of the Gold section and the start of the Silver section. In the Silver section, other attractions like the “Kung Fu Walk”, Monkey bridge, zig-zag walkway and the bamboo bridge with a lovely waterfall near the base camp, are the absolute highlights. After you have recovered from your adventure we continue to Baan Tong Luang, our last stop of today’s tour.
This is a settlement where people of various hilltribes live. Although this is not a real village it is a good chance to see the traditional dress of Lahu, Hmong, Karen and Palong people in a village setting. Greatest attraction though is the famous women of the Long Neck Karen tribe. We spend some time at Ban Tong Luang Return to Chiang Mai. Your guide will drop you off after your Chiang Mai Whitewater Rafting and Zipline Tour.
