5 Reasons To Try Zip lining at Flight of the Gibbon in Chiang Mai

Whether you are looking for a peaceful sanctuary to unwind and relax or for a dose of adrenaline, Chiang Mai has you covered. This gem of a city in the northern part of Thailand had tons of fun things to offer to all kinds of travellers. You could visit the temples on one day and hike the tallest mountain in the country on the other. While there are many options to chose from, there are certain things you really wouldn’t want to miss while you’re here, and Ziplining at Flight of Gibbon is definitely one of them. You can cruise through the Thai rainforest while wearing your heart on your sleeve and you will want to come back for more.

Ziplining is a recreational activity where the rider moves with a harness attached to the rope that is tied to a different point at a certain height.

Here are five reasons why you should do it:

1. There are over 30 stations to choose from

Most of these stations are zip lines but you can pick whatever you are in the mood for. The highest line is set at a height of 100 ft! Soaring through tree-tops gives you the adrenaline rush you came here for and more.

2. The longest line is 800 meters long

The longest and most thrilling line spreads over 800 meters in this lush green forest and as someone once said you will have enough time to panic and then calm down.

3. You can meet a family of Gibbons

We’ve all seen pictures of monkey look-alikes that swing gracefully through rainforests, well these are gibbons. The main feature that distinguishes them from monkeys is that they do not have tails and they use their long limbs to make their moves. As you head towards the top of the hill, you can come across a family of gibbons in their habitat and it’s so much fun to call for them with a distinct ‘whoop whoop‘ or just watch these pranksters go on about their lives.

4. The rangers are hilarious

The rangers who work at the park are extremely funny and they make sure you’re not panicking at any point in time. Isn’t that the most fun fact about this fun maze?

5. Their safety standards are on point

One of the main reasons why many people hesitate to indulge in adventurous activities is because they are worried about safety. Here at Flight of Gibbon, you need not worry about that because every station has a ranger who will zip you up and ensure your cords are foolproof. Two rangers will be assisting you at all times. The whole system is built to ensure that at least one line is hooked to the rope at any given time.

A few things to remember:

  • The minimum required height is that you should at least be 1 meter to fit into the harness and the maximum weight allowed is 120 kgs
  • Flip Flops are not allowed so you might want to carry your shoes with you
  • Dangling jewellery is not allowed, so dress casually and try not to wear a lot of jewellery
  • If you have any pre-existing medical conditions or if you are pregnant, you will have to call in and check with the park rangers if you will be allowed to do this.
