Full description
Arrive at the Mae Ping River and recieve paddling instructions from your guide in your single or double kayak and after some practice, begin your river adventure. Enjoy the absence of modern civilization as you float contentedly through the Mae Taeng Forest.

Get a glimpse of rural life and spot the occasional fisherman casting a net into the Mae Ping or a farmer herding water buffaloes.
