Chiang Mai: Ziplining With Gibbons
Address: 1 hr free (air-conned) bus from Chiang Mai
Cost: 3200 baht per person
Note: You have to be under 130kg – sorry fatties.
If you’re up for an adrenaline buzz, spend three hours flying high with the gibbons over Chiang Mai’s spectacular rainforest on a 5km long zipline. There are over 33 platforms and sky bridges, abseils and vegetation walks. Experience incredible views, charismatic local guides and dense jungle. You’re in good hands with Flight of the Gibbon: the ropes and harnesses seemed to work fine and the staff were extremely competent (I only heard about four recent fatalities while I was there). There are other ziplining companies, but this one gives you a complimentary Thai meal and a bottle of water. What’s not to love?
