Our Beautful Riverside Campground on the Mae Taeng River

8Adventures has a beautiful riverside campground and fantastic camping facilitates. There are not too many places in northern Thailand that have camping like this right next to a beautiful river, So if you want to get back to nature for the night this is a wonderful place to do it. The Mae Taeng River is the best whitewater rafting in Chiang Mai and in Northern Thailand. It is nice to really enjoy that and soak up an extra with an overnight stay with us. We have hot showers lots of bathrooms and all the camping equipment you need. We welcome you to come out and stay the night and enjoy the view of a full night sky od stars and peaceful ambiance of the stream flowing by

Rivers in Thailand

Thailand has so many beautiful places but it is not so well known for whitewater rafting, But Thailand has many beautiful rivers. Thailand does not have snow capped mountains so al the rivers are rain fed meaning they go up real high when it rains and then get real low when there is no rain because there is no slow release of snow to keep the river full. There are natural springs so the main rivers of Thailand have water in them all year round but large differences with heavy downpours.

This is something to be weary of around rivers in Thailand if you are exploring on your own make sure there is not a big storm system coming in or some major weather event going on upstream of you because flash floods do happen here.


Please bring a copy or photocopy of your passport for registration. Bring a dry change of clothes for your ride home.

Rafting: Swimsuit and shoes

We recommend that customers bring sunscreen and bug spray.


For Rafting and ATVs we have GoPro mounts on the top or the helmets. You must bring the slider attachment. For rafting if you can’t swim with it don’t bring it.

We take no responsibility for lost GoPros or broken mounts or personal cameras of any kind.
