From Chiang Mai: Mae Taeng Forest Full-Day River Kayaking

1. From Chiang Mai: Mae Taeng Forest Full-Day River Kayaking

Arrive at the Mae Ping River and recieve paddling instructions from your guide in your single or double kayak and after some practice, begin your river adventure. Enjoy the absence of modern civilization as you float contentedly through the Mae Taeng Forest. Get a glimpse of rural life and spot the occasional fisherman casting a net into the Mae Ping or a farmer herding water buffaloes. Pause and watch for native and migrating birds that thrive in this protected region. Enjoy lunch on the riverbank, then kayak to your final destination in the Mae Taeng Forest Reserve where a canopy of overhanging trees offers shade.

Procedure: pick-up at the hotel, briefing for the kayak tour, drive to the grotto/cave (we got an upgrade and were allowed to see it for free), lunch, kayak tour, return to the hotel -well organized -delicious lunch (also vegetarian) - nice guides Please note: this tour is not suitable for people with claustrophobia (in the cave you sometimes have to crawl through) and for people who get travel sick easily!! We sat on the back of a semi-open pickup truck for almost 2 hours for the drive. The route is bumpy and partly curvy. It was driven very fast and we constantly inhaled the exhaust fumes from the other cars. You should definitely be aware of this beforehand. Apart from these aspects, we still found the trip to be a success.

Since this was my first kayak tour, it was quite exhausting for me. The landscape was great. For me the tour was totally worth it. Very good organizer, everything was well organized.

Great, knowledgeable and funny tour guide. The tour is perfect for a beginner and nice escape from the city! Recommend it!

Great team of guides, great atmosphere, great landscapes... I recommend
