    Jungle Flight tree-top adventures

    Jungle Flight operate zip-line adventures from a high altitude village near Doi Saket, about an hour out of CM.

    A similar operation, flight of the gibbon, isn't far away but we selected Jungle Flight from reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed.

    Photos tell the story >











    Cheers, Rob.

    But Flight of the Gibbon is designed by a Kiwi!

    Looks good Rob.... the only problem is it feels like you have a wedgie for a few hours 555

    Yeah I know, but TA reviews swayed me toward JF. Our guides jovial banter was entertaining and the lunch was excellent. Son Richard wants to do their new 1.5 km zip-line when he returns in June.

    My last command had a 25m high main mast and I did NOT like going up in the bosuns chair, at all. Sign of age and regard for ones safety I guess.
    Jungle Flight was a walk in the park (a very big park too) .... NO PROBLEM at all. You feel totally safe ... in fact, most ppl don't even think about the height factor at all after the 1st zip-line. You could it. My 90 y/o Mum could do it. Hardest part is walking 600m back uphill at the end.
    Cheers, Rob.

    ^Maybe 20 years ago... 555

    You know those bizarre escalators in shopping malls in Thailand? Where they seem suspended in mid-air? I just can't bring myself to go on them... 555.

    It's getting worse Syd. I didn't mind flying when younger... but now, it's a challenge.... I always think of the Air France flight that fell out the sky over the Atlantic. Helps to keep me calm... 555

    I can understand that ... Central Pattaya is a bit scary. Jungle flight not scary at all ... you can watch while I take my Mum. Flying, not shopping!

    My mum did a parachute jump aged 70. I could never do that. I am so careful these days I always walk down stairs backwards... 555

    I think a near-death adventure experience would fix you, just need a Sangsom or 6 before-hand. A VIP bus-load arrived at JF as we were leaving ... 3 of the party (all Poms) were so pissed the staff remarked in Thai "they not hurt if fall down". 555

    I think my mum dropping me (twice) when I was an infant, so that I landed on the ground and then rolled under the car as she was getting out of it, has led to my panic later in life... if you can't trust your mum, why would I trust strangers... 555

    Seriously I could never go on anything like that. But I'm sure a lot would love it...

    I did that one a couple of years ago and they said they were going to have another cable back to the drop off/pick up point.

    Couldn`t see at the time that it would work going uphill...do all Thai`s lie??

    In all seriousness I was pretty good with heights when younger. I have just got worse with age. I see death around every corner now... 555

    You still think that there is nothing worse than death? ..... I see now what you have missed by not getting married a couple of times ....

    I agree. I'm not too worried about death. It's what comes just before that scares me... whether marriage or a long fall... 55

    Get married, Nick. A fall becomes a long-wished-for future adventure afterward!
