tour description

The Flight of the Gibbon offers an exhilarating opportunity to soar through 1500 year old rain forest, high above the forest floor. The unique system enables you to view jungle life from a perspective previously reserved for a select group of researchers. You are taken high into the canopy using an ingenious series of platforms, cables, trails and sky bridges. Soar through the rainforest and experience the longest zipline in the world at over 5km. For thrill seekers and nature lovers alike there has never been a more exciting way to explore the tropical rainforest! The pristine village of Mae Kampong lies just 45 minutes southeast of Chiang Mai on the border of Jae Son National Park. With little in the way of development the surrounding ecosystem remains incredibly intact and is recognized as a hotspot of biodiversity. Climax old growth forest is common supporting a huge range of plant, animal and bird life. Your tour begins with a short course in how to use the cable systems to glide between the treetops, given by the experienced guides that will accompany you. The first platforms start at the lip of a valley with the ridge dropping steeply below you. 3 horizontal traverses bring you to the longest "flying fox", a breathtaking adrenaline ride 130 meters across the valley suspended 60 meters above the ground. A short cable links us to a pristine forest trail and the first of our sky bridges connecting canopy trees. This section of platforms links spectacular strangler figs as we soar through the treetops. Dangling 30 meters above the ground we have an exhilarating abseil to a lower platform before continuing onto the climax of the tour. For most of the time on the final 5 stations you are 40 to 50 meters above the rainforest floor right in the upper canopy. The view is phenomenal, gliding high from tree to tree through a lush panorama of nature. From the last giant tree we have an inspiring 50 meter abseil back to the ground. The tour is designed to be easy for all visitors to descend along the downhill network, taking time to linger and relax at special places along the way and share the experience. Old growth rainforest has several layers, all of which can be seen on the tour. For those more conservative in their thrillseeking there is a choice of a shorter canopy tour of 4 platforms linked by a series of sky bridges. Included in the tour is also a 1-hour trek to a lovely waterfall and Mae Kampong, one of the prettiest villages in the North.
