Embark on a full-day kayaking adventure to the Mae Wang Valley in Northern Thailand, paddling down a jungle-fringed river. Departing from Chiang Mai, meet your guide at your hotel and take a 45-minute drive through the picturesque countryside to the valley, nestled under the shadow of Doi Inthanon, Thailand's highest mountain.
As you arrive, learn the basics of kayaking techniques and safety before launching your boat into the upper section of the Mae Wang River. The Class I and II rapids make this portion of the river ideal for novice kayakers, and you can choose a sit in kayak or a sit-on-top boat that best suits your skill level.
During the journey, keep an eye out for elephants at the river's edge, and enjoy the vibrant tropical forest filled with a wide array of bird species and other jungle animals. Take in the stunning views of the lush landscape and soak up the sun on the easygoing stretches of water between the rapids.
No matter your experience level, this kayaking ” Trip E “ is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in the beauty of Northern Thailand's wilderness. In the low water season we may choose a more appropriate river.
