About Flight of the Gibbon

Amid the northern Thai mountains lies one of the most exciting adventures. The Flight of Gibbon is the longest Zipline course in the nation. If you’re one of nature and some experience to go with it, you absolutely cannot miss The Flight of Gibbon. The adventure opened its doors in 2007 when a New Zealand adventurer decided that Thailand needs a zipline experience. Fast forward ten years and the experience caught on like a wildfire and has not looked back since. 

The adventure is designed to take a rider through the luscious rainforest through the Mae Kampong Village. The greenery is beyond encompassing and awe-inspiring. It’s one of the best ways to truly experience the nature Thailand has to offer. The experience also provides an educational aspect where you will get to learn about flora and fauna of the rainforest surrounding you.

The adventure adheres to the wildlife sanctuary and can experience the most magnificent wild animals ranging from monkeys, white lions, rhinos, giraffes, flamingos, hornbills, elephants, and obviously gibbons. In addition to that, if the animals are not in their mating season, you can get a chance to feed them. Flight of the Gibbon also offers add-on adventures if you are interested. Otherwise, the main focus of the experience is to conserve the habitat. Since all of the activities are related to exploring new habitats, Flight of the Gibbon also offers wildlife and forest conservation class where people from all around the world can learn how to sustain the environment.
