Chiang Mai Kayaking Mae Wang River Rock Hopper



The most scenic acessible kayaking takes place North of Chiang Mai in the Mae Ngat Valley to Chiang Dao region and south of Chiang Mai on the Mae Wang River. It is here where we pick the most interesting river sections taking water flow and weather conditions in consideration. River flow can vary daily in the rainy season and in the cool and dry season we move deeper into the jungle as water ways open up to exploration. The "mighty" Mae Ping River presents us here with creek like to smoothly flowing conditions, rewarding us with lush canopy,, breath taking views of Jungle walls and mountain scapes. When choosing the final route we take kayakers ability levels and match the appropriate water conditions. We welcome families and take special consideration when recomending a trip including children.



Mae Wang River

In the foothills of the highest mountain Thailands flows the Mae Wang river. In the rainy season it starts to fill and kayakers get a taste of fun rapids and jungle kayaking. There is a 3 hr+ trip that a sports minded and motivated beginner kayaker can handle, class 1 and 2 rapids make this a great play ground the sporty challenge mixed with the superb jungle scene makes this a favorite in our tour collection. An added bonus to the alreayd awesome kayaking, local elephants along the river can be observed through out the trip. A delicious lunch awaits us at a riverside restaurant. Strong learners and experienced kayakers go on a bit further down the canyon into larger rapids and put that GoPro to the test.
