Go kayaking through the jungle of Northern Thailand, a place formerly reserved for hunters, gatherers, and local fishermen. Paddle along the Ping River with your guide, a professional kayak instructor who provides paddling lessons and coaching — beginners included. Your back-to-nature day trip from Chiang Mai includes round-trip hotel transport and lunch by the waterfront.Description
Start your small-group kayaking trip with hotel pickup in Chiang Mai and head to the countryside where you'll navigate through the lush and overgrown waterways of the northern Ping River. As the rains ease with the cool season, the slowly receding water levels allow you to enter deep into the jungle. The creek-like river wends through bamboo and temperate forest, presenting you with an intimate view of Northern Thailand's flora and fauna.
Snap on your life jacket, practice your paddling skills, and set off into nature undisturbed by modern life. The overhanging trees and the cool water provide a unique environment as you navigate this gem. Your guide points out the abundant birdlife, fish jumping from the stream, and other sights and sounds of native wildlife.
Stop by the riverside for a delicious lunch before your return to your starting point for the transfer back to your Chiang Mai hotel.
