Jungle trekking & kayaking

Ages from 14 and up, mixed age groups including families catered for

 

The aim of the Adventure1 trip to Thailand is to complete 2 or more days trekking in the Koh Chang Jungle, where you will be accompanied by a local National Park Guide and Jerry Dolan, Company Director and jungle leader. Prior to the trek, you will be given a study sheet so you can brush up on local do and don’t subjects, flora and fauna, map and a list of things to bring. On arrival there will be a jungle hazards presentation by Jerry, which will be followed by a group kit check and packing session, any discrepancies would then then rectified. Then the day will end with a short trek to the beautiful Klong Plu waterfall where you can practice erecting their hammocks and water proof covers, cookers and gas canisters.

 

The trek will be followed by a day of scuba diving off one of the other nearby islands, then two days of kayaking along the west and south coast of Koh Chang, culminating in a BBQ of day fresh snapper, prawns, salad, fruit and beverages just a few metres from the lapping waves.

 

Weather systems are not as ferocious as one would be led to believe of the monsoon seasons in Thailand, on our trips a typical day was to wake up with the rain and by mid morning it had abated, followed by warmth and sunny spells. Then during the evening at around 7-8 the rain came again, by then, hammocks were up and sleep routine began again. Temperatures ranged from 25c in the morning and around 30c during the day.

Price: £2195 based on 12 attending
