During March April May, you can use inflatable kayaks, for the main class IV section, the best white water in northern Thailand.

Check out our Facebook page for examples of past trips and what current trips look like.  https://www.facebook.com/8Adventures.

10 km Inflatable Kayaking has it all. Its broken into 3 sections. The first section is a great warm-up where you learn skills practicing with the guides and getting used to the boat. This section has one class III and is probably the most beautiful section of the river with the encroaching jungle offering lots of shade. The middle section is action-packed with rapids and is probably the best Whitewater in Thailand. Most of this section is class III and IV rapids. The 3rd section lets up in the beginning giving you some time to relax before entering a great class III rapid leading into a short continuous section of rapids that goes almost all the way to the take out where our camp is.
