Top 10 Outdoor Adventures in Thailand
Thailand is sometimes known as The Golden Land due to the warmth of its beaches, year-round perfect weather and the hospitality of its people. It's also a land brimming with opportunities for exploration, excitement and exploits. Here are 10 Thailand adventures guaranteed to get your adrenaline pumping.
10. CavingGet to the heart of Thailand by exploring ancient caves and tremendous caverns like those in the Pang Mapha District of the Mae Hong Son Province. Here you can venture underground and discover wildlife, history and geology. Expert guides, like those at Cave Lodge, will escort you through geologic labyrinths, vertical caves and collapsed caves. Combine your journey with forest hikes or rafting to see even more of the Thai landscape.
9. Jungle TrekkingGet intimate with the wilds of Thailand by hitting the unmarked trails. We recommend at least a 3-day trek to see mountain ridges, rainforests and experience camping in the beautiful Thai wilderness. The folks at Active Thailand will provide an informed English-speaking guide who will pick you up at your Chiang Mai City hotel and arrange all your food and camping needs. You just need to bring dry socks, SPF and a sense of adventure.
8. Elephant RidingTaking an elephant ride through local Thai villages and surrounding forests is an experience no visitor to Thailand should miss. The type and length of the ride can be catered specifically to you: a half-hour ride through a local village or a 5-day trek through the jungles of Northern Thailand. Those with the endurance and the daring can even incorporate mountain biking and rafting into the trek.
