Rafting the Pai River, Thailand 3 Days

Being the only access to this area, the Pai River guarantee an unforgettable wilderness trip. Beside experiencing the thrill of the rapids, you might have the chance to watch monkeys and birds playing along the river side and shower in sparkling waterfalls. The overnight in our “jungle camp” is definitely one of the highlight of the trip!
