This is an excellent day out from Chiang Mai.
A van picks you up and takes about an hour to reach the site.
You get fitted up with the equipment.
There are lockers where you can leave your belongings.
Then you get taken in the van to the start point - time to start ziplining!!! So much fun. There are a few swing bridges and a couple of abseils (well they pretty much just lower you down).
The guides are funny and entertaining. Felt very safe the whole time.
We had eight in our group which was fine. The smaller the group the faster it would be.
The gibbons are a family who are cared for by some local thai people. We saw the new baby gibbon which was really cute!!!
Then it was back and time to eat. Lunch was fine. Rice, pattaya salad, a chicken and pork dish and fruit. I'm vegan and they had no trouble whipping up a plate of veggies for me. You need to pay for drinks.
The next part I feel could easily be eliminated. You are taken in a van to a waterfall. Walk up the stairs beside it, then come back again. Some of our group didn't go and got massages instead.
The trip takes pretty much a whole day. It would be nice if they gave an option for a half day if you just wanted to do the ziplining and skip the lunch and waterfall. That would be pretty much 4-5 hours including transfer.
Take your camera. I sadly didn't as they said they would take picutes at certain points. But I ended up paying 1000 Baht for the pictures they took (which while they were fine, I thought was really expensive). A different guy in my group had his big SLR camera and had no problems taking that. He got some GREAT shots of his friends.
I went at the 9am session and it was VERY crowded. At least 9 groups of people. Which meant we had to wait maybe 1/2hr or more to get fitted up. Maybe ask before you book which times are quieter for the particular day you want to go.
I definitely recommend this tour!!
