EN: Adventure Rafting on the Pai River

The Pai Explorer Map & Blog

Located in the foothills of the Himalayas, the Pai river, thanks to an excellent compromise between wilderness, challenge and safety, offers one of the best rafting expedition spots in the world.

It will be well over the expectations of the beginners and surprise the outdoor enthusiasts.  Starting from Pai, a green-village nestled in a peaceful valley, the middle section of the Pai River stretches over 60 kilometers of rocky landscapes and non-accessible jungle forest; it offers fun through as much as 60 rapids up to class 4.

You will also discover hot springs, swim in gorges, shower under waterfalls, surprise colorful birds and other wild animals in their environment. You will stay overnight in a jungle camp in harmony with the nature.
