Thailand adventures tour at Mae Kampong

Fight of the Gibbon Mae Kam Pong village is one of the oldest villages. Founded over 100 years of the village is a major creek flowing through several villages line Creek, a branch of the Huai Mae Kam Pong. Since the former is found near the creek cornflower yellow red mixed with small villagers called these flowers as “flowers Kampong”
I was so sick of .Bangkok life. I gave my friend a call and asked her to find something fun to do together. She said we should travel with “women style” by turning ourselves to be a gibbon. She offered a trip to somewhere in Chiang Mai. I agreed and told her to pick me up at the airport on Friday.

From the airport, it takes us about one hour to our destination,Thailand adventures at Mae Kampong. We were all excited for not seeing each other for a long time. We went straight from the airport to Donjan intersection, then cross the intersection and direct to New Sankampaeng Rd. We passed Mae-On, Sankampaeng Hot spring and finally get to Maekampong village. Our destination is the Treetop adventure. We checked in and went out to find something to eat.
The next morning, we woke up early and went to the local market. There were a lot of local foods at the market. We were happy eating good food and seeing the villager’s easy lifestyle. After that we went to the activity site called –Fight of the Gibbon. Around us, there were all huge trees surrounded. At the starting point the staff came to teach us how to play with a sling.

Equipment are sling hanger, safety belt, helmet, and breaker which is a piece of bamboo to be used to slower the speed. The staff explained that there are 15 jumping points. It is 200 meters from point to point. The total length is three km. which is the longest distance in Thailand. Each station has the seat for us to sit and take
a break. At some point we had to cross the hanging bridge which has 1,500 feet height. We were impressed by the beautiful nature. The staff teased us that we have to be quick if we want to take some picture. We looked at each other wondering how we could do that we our hands holding the breaker. !!
All the gibbons jumped one by one. To prove my own cour-age, and to show the power of Thai lady, I was the first one in the group. Somebody weight to light, the staff need to come and help them to get to the end. Along the way, we were appreciated by the trees, cliff, waterfall many kinds of birds, gibbons, bear, and wild pig. We were flying with freedom as if we were gibbons. Though I don’t think the gibbons there can fly that far, I still am jealous that they can fly. Besides hanging on the sling, we also jumped from the higher point to the lower point for the new vision.

For those who have problem with height may not be able to walk across the hanging bridge. After we were more comfortable, instructed by the staff, we let our hand free and act as if we were flying. The more we play, the more we had fun. I was not bored anymore.We left the wood in the afternoon. After lunch, we came back to take a bath and get change. Then we packed. When all get in the car, we were heading back to town. None of us said a word. All the gibbons fall into sleep.
