  • Chiang Mai: Full-Day Chiang Dao Caving & Jungle Kayaking

    1. Chiang Mai: Full-Day Chiang Dao Caving & Jungle Kayaking

    Drive high up into the Northern Thai Jungle, to the Chiang Dao Valley and to the Mae Ping river. This creek-like river winds itself through the bamboo jungle and gives an intimate view of Northern Thai wilderness.  Then, embark on a kayaking trip, where undisturbed woods, overgrown banks with fallen trees and the shade from overhanging trees provide a unique environment as you navigate the task at hand. Abundant bird life, jumping fish and mysterious sounds from the forest accompany the journey.To complete this wonderful kayaking experience, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant or riverside.  Next, tackle Chiang Dao Cave, the most prominent cave system in Northern Thailand. Spend approximately 1 hour following a local guide through the side arms with headlamps and flashlights until joining the main route into well-lit caverns. Marvel at the Buddhist shrines and see the numerous bats that ...

    I liked the kayaks very much. Beautifull views, tranquile, you are pedalling by yourslef all the way (the kayaks are personal, not for pairs). Has a bit of asrenalin, but not too complex to handle. The cave was less intersting.

  • Chiang Mai: Segway and Eco Canopy Zip-Line Adventure

    2. Chiang Mai: Segway and Eco Canopy Zip-Line Adventure

    This 9-hour program begins at 09:45 across from Ta Phae Gate in central Chiang Mai. Enjoy a 2-hour Segway tour of the ancient city’s historical sites including Wat Pra Singh, 3 Kings Monument, Wat Chedi Luang and more. A snack and drink are included. Following the 2-hour Segway tour, you board a luxury, air-conditioned van for the drive to Mae Kampong, about an hour from Chiang Mai, for a zip-line adventure like none other on the planet! Soar through the lush, ancient rainforest on Southeast Asia’s number 1 zip-line eco-adventure, Flight of the Gibbon. Experience beauty, magic and adventure deep inside one of Thailand's most pristine rainforests, and hopefully see wild gibbons during the journey. On this unforgettable day, you’ll soar through the jungle enjoying the same spectacular views as the gibbons. In the treetops on a mountain outside of Chiang Mai, you'll glide through the jun...

    The Segway tour was super fun. I was worried at first because I’ve never been on one before and Thailand streets aren’t really the friendliest, but I got the hang of it really quickly after our 5 minute lesson and was ready to go. I was the only one at that time so it was really tailored to what I wanted to do, which was mostly just ride around and see the city. We stopped for refreshments at a cute little cafe and just rested for awhile. My guide, Josh, was great and I always felt safe with him.

  • Chiang Mai: Boat Ride and Cycling Tour to Sticky Waterfall

    3. Chiang Mai: Boat Ride and Cycling Tour to Sticky Waterfall

    After pickup, enjoy a cup of complimentary coffee at Trailhead Café before preparing for the day ahead. After a comfortable 45-minute journey in a Toyota Fortune, begin the adventure with a boat ride across the Mae Kuang reservoir on a longtail boat, so you can admire the wonderful mountainous scenery on all sides.   After the boat trip, the riding begins. Cycle along a combination of quiet country roads, dirt dual track and single tracks. Pass through a quiet country village and lookout point where you can take a break and enjoy a drink. The cycling tour continues through verdant teak forests and a cave full of bats and if you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of a snake.   From this point, the trail is mainly dirt dual track with some small uphill sections, as well as downhill sections eventually coming out onto the road in front of the famous “Sticky Waterfall” (Bua Tong). Here...

    Lek was amazing, I spin a lot but hadn’t been on a mountain bike for years. He was really encouraging throughout the day, checking to see I was ok as the group I was with were seasoned riders. I loved every minute and would highly recommend this activity in Chiang Mai!

  • From Chiang Mai: Chiang Dao Cave Trekking Full-Day Tour

    4. From Chiang Mai: Chiang Dao Cave Trekking Full-Day Tour

    Get picked up from your hotel in Chiang Mai city center and head off on a day trip to Chiang Dao. Begin with a visit to the Chiang Dao Cave (Wat Tham Chiang Dao), which is without a doubt one of the area's most fascinating sites. Five limestone caverns invite visitors to uncover the beautiful stalactites, stalagmites, Buddha statues, and offerings from faithful pilgrims. After paying a small entrance fee, the tour begins through a system of interconnected caverns extending over seven miles into the heart of the mountain. Expect cooler air in here, although hot days may create humid conditions at times. Some of the caves are illuminated by electric lights. Here you'll find Buddha statues, including a 13-foot reclining one. Don’t miss the row of five seated Buddhas in the first cavern, which many travelers find particularly impressive. After the cave adventure, the next stop is the Chian...

Nicy was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. I had a great time asking all kind of question, which she answers for. The cave was beautiful and a great possibility to escape noisy Chiang Mai.

This was a highlight of my trip to Chang Mai. The guide was very dedicated and gave a lot of interesting information. I also got helped with getting some nice pictures!

It was really fun. The guide give us good explanation about everything we visit. You must do this activity while you are in Chiang Mai. A+ for the guide.
