Choice of Tours: Bike and Raft Adventure
Just a short hop from Chiang Mai get on your bikes and ride through the verdant landscape of Mae Taeng on secret trails, snaking through the natural surroundings that will take you up and down for 20 km. Offering stunning views of the valley formed by the Mae Taeng River, see local plantations during your ride. We'll stop for drink and snack breaks as we need. Ending with the reward of lunch of local Thai food by the river we will be shortly rafting down. We will now get to know its full power as we embark on an exhilarating downstream run through grade 3 and 4 rapids. We'll ride the rivers swell, pushing its way out of the mountainous tropical rainforest around Chiang Mai. During the 10 km route that will take about two hours, experience the beauty of surrounding as we follow the river through untouched wilderness and past rural hill tribe villages.
Pedal and Paddle Adventure
Begin slowly on quiet country roads that pass through paddy fields, orchards with backdrops of stunning mountains and into the Sri Lanna National Park. We are privileged to be allowed to ride across the dam of the sixth largest park in Thailand. Sri Lanna is comprised of valleys and mountains, and an endless number of streams that feed the Mae Ngad reservoir. The park is fringed with forests and the mirrored surface of the water reflects the peacefulness. The next phase of the adventure is paddling kayaks along the jungle edge of the lake, looking for monkeys, and perhaps sighting a colourful kingfisher bird. Take lunch at a floating restaurant. The rest of the afternoon is free to explore isolated nooks of this 430 m deep lake, or to swim in the stream-fed waters before paddling back to our put out point at the end of an active yet relaxing day.
