Experience the thrills and chills of Thailand’s fastest white waters on the Maetang River that runs north of the beautiful city of Chiang Mai. Racing down the rapids in the midst of breathtaking mountains and alluring jungle, it is clear to see how white water rafting in northern Thailand is an experience like no other. This 10km run starts at a narrow point of the river with level 3, 4 and 5 rapids – that means large waves, continuous rapids, sharp and precise maneuvering around rocks and other obstacles and considerable drops (over 5ft). Not to worry – you will be briefed beforehand at The Peak’s mountainside camp, where a skilled team of instructors, guides and rescuers prize themselves on their dedication to risk management and safety. But it’s a safe bet that you’ll be wide-eyed and white-knuckled for most of the ride anyway, as this river and its canyons guarantee an exhilarating, adrenaline-pumping rush on every run.
Guided by a trained safety staff comprised of local villagers who live on the river, you can rest assured in the skilled hands of those most intimate with the Maetang’s character. All staff members are trained in safety & rescue procedures both from on the raft and at shore, including ongoing training and refresher courses in CPR and First AID. Helmets, life jackets, paddles, rafts, ropes and rigging are continually inspected to maintain international standards. With an incident-free record that runs 12 years long – since the very start of The Peak – this outdoor adventure company takes your well-being into its hands, leaving you to enjoy the fun and excitement of the river and its surroundings. The safety measures used on these tours go above and beyond international guidelines, having been constructed specifically for the unique climate, topography and seasonal conditions of the region.
