We saw a poster for white water rafting whilst walking around in Pai and thought it would be an exciting and fun way to spend one of our days here. We made the booking and the entire day was amazing! We were picked up at our hotel by Mr Antoine to go for breakfast at the main office. After breakfast we were given a safety briefing for if we fell in the water. Then we were ready for the 2 hour drive to our launch place. We opted to sit in the back of the open side, roofed pick up truck so that we could get fresh air and enjoy panoramic views of the mountains as we drove to our destination. There was only 2 of us so we had a whole bench each and were very comfortable. We enjoyed a nice morning breeze and spectacular views... We were trousers and jumpers as it can get quite chilly! The of road part of the journey was very exciting as we drove up and down steep muddy jungle roads, tgrough streams and banks. Then we arrived at the river. Our driver Mr Wan helped us to tie our flip flops to our ankles so that they would be more secure, and gave some string to tie our sunglasses so they would not disappear into the murky river. Then we were ready to go with our captain Mr Phana (which means Mr Forest!) after he gave us a quick rundown of his paddling commands and what we needed to do. We spent about 5 hours on the muddy river enjoying the majestic scenery of thick jungle covered mountains, cliffs and hills, battling rapids, relaxing whilst enjoying the serene quiet of the jungle on slower stretches of river, spotting some birds including some beautiful blue king fishers and chatting with Mr Phana about our home countries and villages, learning and teaching some of our native languages and customs. We enjoyed Mr Phana's company very much and we had such a thrilling time paddling through the rapids. We stopped for lunch at a hot spring on the edge of the river (careful where you stand as my girlfriend burned her feet a small bit!). We enjoyed watching 100s of butterflies swarming the springs whilst we are our lunch and Mr Obama told us that he had once seen a large footprint of a big cat at the hot springs, the size of a spread hand so probably a tiger! We had so much fun that we didn't miss the fact that we didn't see any gibbons which are regular visitors to the river. They did warn us that the gibbons were unlikely to be there as the water level was very high in the middle of rainy season and this tends to cause the gibbons to retreat into the jungle. This was out first rafting experience and we had a blast. We did it for 1 day and after this next time we will definitely do a 2 or 3 day trip. I recommend wearing comfortable long sleeves and trousers which are ok to get wet because my knees burned a bit and my girlfriends arms burned a bit from sitting in the sun a long time (or apply lots of sun cream regularly) also beach shoes would've been better than flip flops.

We took our family for one day rafting with Mike. We loved being in the nature for the whole day, seeing birds, gibbons and butterflies, surrounded by immense trees of multiple green colors. Our captain was very expert, professional but most of all relaxed, joyful. The rapids were challenging enough for our group of beginners. Our driver was also nice and warm. Everything went smooth. Pls book with them. Best experience we had in our ten day road trip in Northern Thailand. Antoine’s welcome was super friendly. We have rarely seen someone so smiling. To finish we felt very safe.

Honestly, this experience was the only thing was really worth to pay Money for in Pai! Amazing crew of really nice people, and great overall organization! Me and my boyfriend could only book a One day rafting because in january the level of water Is pretty low, but i Wish we could do the two days rafting, maybe next time! Our leader was Mike, we spent an incredibile day soaked in the nature paddling and talking about every curiosity about nothern Thailand. We were given fried Rice for lunch: the best i've ever eaten in this country! At the end of the day I really felt enriched by this experience and i would repeat It again!

We spent 2 amazing days with the best guide ever in Pai, he knows very well the jungle and guide us through the river as if it was the most common thing ever. The level of water at this time was low but we had great discussions and a lot of fun with Chai in beautifull landscape where he shows us animals and eatable plants evertime it was possible. The night in the camp is such an adventure, he cooked tasty Thai food for us with almost nothing butait woodfire, a real chef in nature ! Thank you so much for this great experience and continue beeing so positive and aware with tourists, it is a real pleasure. Definetly worth it, go ahead !!!
