This Mae Ngat Valley river trip start with hotel pickup from your Chiang Mai hotel in the morning. On arrival at the launch site on the Mae Ping River, get paddling instructions from your guide in your single or double kayak. After some practice it's an easy entry at the dam flow. The river terrain gets a bit more challenging as you navigate between the sand banks and shore, but newcomers to the sport will find the vessels very stable.
The cool water keeps the immediate environment at a comfortable temperature and the absence of modern civilization provides a tranquil setting. Get a glimpse of rural life — you'll spot the occasional fisherman casting a net into the Mae Ping or a farmer herding water buffaloes — and watch for native and migrating birds that thrive in this protected region.
Pause for lunch on the riverbank, then kayak to your final destination in the Mae Tang Forest Reserve where a canopy of overhanging trees offers shade. Afterward, you're driven back to your hotel in Chiang Mai.
