Travers Lewis Five Hundred Pixels

Much copied but never equalled, this adventure outfit started the zipline craze, with nearly 5km of wire strung up like spiderwebs in the gibbon-populated (you may see some) forest canopy near Ban Mae Kampong, an hour's drive east from Chiang Mai. The day-tour includes an optional but highly recommended village visit, waterfall walk and delicious lunch cooked by the community.

As well as day trips, it offers multiday, multiactivity tours that include a night at a village homestay.
