Ziplining in Chiang Mai

This adventure outfit started the zipline craze, with nearly 5km of wire strung up like spiderwebs in the gibbon-populated forest canopy near Ban Mae Kampong, an hour's drive east from Chiang Mai. The day tour includes an optional village visit, waterfall walk and lunch cooked by the community. There are also multiday, multiactivity tours that can include a night at a village homestay.

In 2019 a 25-year-old tourist plunged from the zipline to his death. The operation closed temporarily for an investigation, after which no information was released. The tours have since resumed.
