Chiang Mai Zipline Flight of the Gibbon
Flight of the Gibbon opened our original Thailand Zipline course in Chiang Mai in 2007. Since then, we’ve continually strived to improve our service to make it the best Zipline course in Asia. We make your day in the Thai rainforest unforgettable.
Our Flight of the Gibbon Chiang Mai Zipline course is situated in absolutely stunning, old-growth, virgin rainforest inbetween Mae Takhrai National park and Chae Son National Park in the forest Village of Mae Kampong. The location is an enjoyable 1 hour drive in our air conditioned vans through this beautiful country from Chiang Mai.
With Ziplines, abseils, sky bridges and nature trails, your day of Ziplining in the Chiang Mai rainforest will be a memorable experience. And we will take care of you every step of the way with expert Sky Rangers and the highest possible safety standards on the course. You will also be treated to a tasty Thai lunch and receive round-trip transfers to and from your hotel in our comfortable air-conditioned vans.
The Only Zipline with Wild Gibbons
Our name and ethos is inspired by the wild gibbons living in our area. We are delighted to say that the original gibbons closest to our course were rehabilitated and released in 2007. They have gone from strength to strength and have established their own territory within sight of our Chiang Mai Zipline course.
The gibbons have been so successful in the wild that they have now produced offspring. To hear and watch these gibbons high up in the treetops is a special feeling and one which you too can experience when you book a Zipline tour with Flight of the Gibbon. To have the best chance to see these majestic endangered animals, we recommend a 6.30am pickup. The gibbons are most active and vocal in the mornings.
Chiang Mai Zipline Course
We have created courses with Ziplines at different heights and lengths to take our visitors on a thrilling trip through the treetops and jungle. Whether it’s walking along sky-bridges suspended in the tree canopy, standing on viewing platforms, abseiling down ropes to the forest floor or clambering over cargo nets, a Flight of the Gibbon experience is designed for fun and adventure.
When you Zipline with Flight of the Gibbon you become part of our conservation experience. Thanks to your support we have established several conservation programs in Thailand and believe it is crucial to involve the local community in these programs.
