This has been Thailand’s driest and hottest summer since the 1960s with temperatures reaching record breaking highs of 44c.
At 8Adventures we’ve had to work extra hard to keep our guests happy under the scorching sun. Rafting in Chiang Mai has been virtually impossible over the last few weeks, even with our inflatable kayaks that are suited to low water.
Last night we experienced the first of the seasons downpours and the water level in the Mae Taeng rose dramatically overnight, to the great relief of all our staff. Not only does this make for more exciting rafting and kayaking, it also means the surrounding jungle and forests are greener and fresher- making our trekking tours even better too.
