Beginning mid morning as you're picked up from your centrally located Chiang Mai hotel for the drive by open pick-up truck to the Mae Tang area. Part of the journey is by dirt track, which gives you the feeling of impending excitement. Before sitting down to your delicious local lunch at Baan Sob Kai, take some time to wander around the area at your leisure.

Then it is time to get down to business as you are fully out-fitted with helmet and life-jacket before stepping into the water. Receive a brief, but appropriate, safety instruction plus instructions on how to paddle, on how to manoeuvre your way down the river and more.

Then begin the exhilarating blast of approximately 2 hours down the best part of the Mae Taeng River. Travel over Class III and Class IV gorges and rapids for 10kms. in a setting of high mountains and green jungle from Sob Kai to Muang Kut village. Absolutely world-class whitewater rafting that we promise will be one of the most memorable experiences of your holiday!

Fun for everyone from the beginner to experienced. Do not kid yourself, you will be tested. But each raft has its own professionally trained guide with years of experience, so you can be sure you'll be well looked after, you'll be safe and you'll have a blast. Many visitors have agreed that whitewater rafting on the Mae Taeng River is one of the best in South-East Asia. 
Once you've reached the downstream camp, enjoy your refreshments before visiting the hill tribe villages on the way back to Chiang Mai. 
Arrival back at your hotel should be at about 6 pm.
