Awesome trekking and rafting adventures!

3-hour trekking adventure to a waterfall is a nice way to see the jungle and cool off in the water. The trek itself is about 1.6 km through the jungle to a 10 m waterfall. We then take a break here so you can go for a swim so it’s good beforehand to be change into your swimming attire at the camp before you start the hike. The guide along the way will point out flora and fauna and some of the cultural aspects of Thailand. We return back along the same track. If you’re a quick hiker and would like to go further past the waterfall we can do that as well. The main difference between the 2 hour and the 3 hour is the amount of information you’re given about the forest. This is perfect to add on to anyone of our other adventures.


10 km White water rafting has it all and is broken into 3 sections. 1st is a great warm-up where you learn skills practicing with the guides and getting used to the boat. This section has one class III and is probably the most beautiful section of the river with the encroaching jungle offering lots of shade. The middle section is an action-packed with rapids and is probably the best Whitewater in Thailand. Most of this section is class III and IV rapids. The 3rd section lets up in the beginning giving you some time to relax before entering a great class III and into short continuous section of rapids that goes almost all the way to the take out where our camp is. We have top-of-the-line equipment expert trained guides to make sure you have a safe adventure. We have towels for you when you finish and shower facilities that you can use before heading home. Make sure to bring a 2nd set of dry clothes so you can ride home dry.
