Starting from Chiang Mai, take a short transfer to Mae Taeng River. Undertake a safety before beginning the 9 km river trip down through a series of 20, class 2 – 3 rapids. Arriving at our camp for lunch. In the afternoon, we transfer to Pai, join in some activities or walk around the small town. This evening enjoy a welcome dinner.
After a warming cup of coffee in the morning over the safety briefing we will set off to our start point deep in the jungle. Immediately we will be bouncing down clean clear waters through dense jungle with some large rapids ahead of us. We will stop for a picnic lunch in the shade of a huge mango tree. On the way we will stop at some hot springs and a waterfall which is great for a quick dip and a play in the plunge pool. Tonight we will enjoy dinner cooked on an open fire. Tonight camp under the stars, facilities are simple but comfortable. Sit back and enjoy the sounds of nature.
After an energizing breakfast, we will continue paddling further downstream to encounter the “Red Cliff” rapids. After a while we reach an important confluence to the Pai River. We will pass through the Pai Gorges that are scattered with a few more tricky rapids. Coming to the end, we will pop out into the Mae Hong Son Valley. We will disembark at Mae Surin National Park headquarters before transferring you to the beautiful border town of Mae Hong Son.
After breakfast, transfer back to Chiang Mai.
