10 KM RAFTING CLASS III-IV
Class III-IV. The Best of the Mae Taeng
Available June – February
This is our signature rafting trip. 10k with a great Class III-IV rapid section on the Mae Taeng River. From our river camp we take a short 15 minute drive to “Sop Kai” village. After our full safety briefing, we set off on our adventure with the first 3 Km of exciting class III rapids through lush jungle and amazing scenery. The upper section is gorgeous with a few fun rapids to warm up in before arriving at the top of the main class IV section. Here everyone comes alive and gets ready for the section below. The guides will check in with each other and give the signal to go as all boats drop into the first class IV rapid. The class IV section is non-stop action. Follow your guide’s commands as you charge forward though many rewarding class IV rapids. At the bottom everyone gives a paddle high five and celebrates a job well done, completing the most exciting section of rapids in northern Thailand. But the fun is not done ~ you still have 4 kilometers of Class III and 5 more kilometers back down to 8Adventures. Don’t be surprised to see an elephant while floating down this spectacular scenic section of river.
