Our zipline adventure is situated 40 minute from the center of Chiang Mai city. Situated between three jungle hill tribe villages in a beautiful hillside valley, with the river Maeram running through the middle of this fertile land leading to two waterfalls, which you are free to visit and relax in. Eagle track Zipline started the zipline project with full agreement from the local Hmong and Karen communities, who once cultivated popies in the area until it came under the royal project scheme after a visit from HM the King of Thailand in 1972, They then changed to alternative crops of brown rice, maize, egg plants, soy beans etc. Eagle Track Zipline is a community based tourism operator. Our zipline ECO adventure is operated in a co-operative manner with the etho-Eco agricultural livelihood conservation group in Bann Wang Hang, Maeram. We employ local villagers and put them through courses to be trained as professional guides, they have been fully trained in safety and advanced first aid, as well as speaking a variety of languages, they are friendly helpful and happy to answer any questions you have. This year we are planning on planting 2000+ tree seedling to help in areas where there has been deforestation. We also supply accommodation and meals for local people working at Eagle Track Zipline, as well as other community based ventures. Without you our customers none of this would be possible. Many thanks from Eagle Track Zipline team. « less

The main focus of the park is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for elephants to live. Established at the beginning of 2014, visitors can enjoy a unique experience in caring for good natured and happy elephants where quality of life is of the upmost importance. The elephants suffer NO abuse and are not manipulated into entertaining guests. We believe it is a far greater experience seeing a baby elephant splashing around in a mud spa with it's mother because it's truly contented, than forcing elephants into unnatural activities for the amusement of on lookers. The Elephant Retirement Park is not choreographed but a natural and rewarding experience where you can get to know the elephants by feeding, cleaning and bathing them. Visitors will also be able to learn about the herbal care and communication with elephants from the local Mahout people who stay with the elephants at the Park. The founder of the park "Noi" will also make sure that you are looked after, providing all transport, chilled bottled water, great Thai food and the elephant experience of a life time. « less

Today, site of a Buddhist university and a popular spot for photographers, especially during sunset. Some of the temple's chedis (spires) contain ashes of Chiang Mai's royal family. Also, one can see half of a holy Buddhist relic brought from Sukothai in 1371, which unfortunately split into two upon arrival in Chiang Mai. The other half is buried at Doi Suthep. A 500-year-old bronze Buddha image, one of the largest in northern Thailand, is also housed here, in the small hall at the back of the compound. « less
