first_imgGo back to the e-newsletterWith two locations to choose from – and another in the planning stages – travellers can explore the rainforests of Thailand with The Flight of the Gibbon.Ziplines, skybridges, platform lookouts and abseiling experiences give different perspectives on one-day adventures exploring the rainforest canopies around Chiang Mai and Pattaya, with a third zipline course planned for Kho Pa Ngan.Flight of the Gibbon’s first zipline course opened in Chiang Mai in 2007 and has gone on to win awards and thrill visitors with the experience. In Chiang Mai, a VIP package offering an exclusive, private experience is now available. The package includes private luxury transportation, a tour personally conducted by a resident nature specialist and a champagne picnic-style afternoon tea at a beautiful riverside location in the forest. Two experienced Sky Rangers are on hand for the private zipline experience.On all tours, accompanied by Sky Rangers working to the highest possible safety standards, participants also have the chance to encounter wild gibbons.The best odds for this extraordinary experience is on an early morning tour (pick up around 6.30am), when the gibbons are most vocal and active. The gibbon colony living near the Chiang Mai zipline has gone from strength to strength and grown in numbers with the birth of offspring. There is nothing more thrilling than hearing the ‘song’ of these endangered mammals.Flight of the Gibbon’s Chiang Mai zipline course is located in the mountain village of Mae Kampong, an hour’s drive east of central Chiang Mai city. Mae Kampong is home to a small community, with some villagers employed on the zipline. Visitors can also stay overnight in a homestay, or can take a tour to see local traditions and skills. The day tour also includes lunch and round-trip transfers from your hotel.The Chonburi Zipline course is located on the borders of Chompoo Wildlife Reserve, about halfway between Bangkok and Pattaya. The tour includes pick-up and drop-off from Bangkok or Pattaya. Chonburi Zipline is within Khao Kheow Safari Park, making it almost certain that you will see gibbons as part of your Flight of the Gibbon zipline experience. Go back to the e-newsletterlast_img
