Explore the wild and untamed rapids of Northern Thailand on this multi-day whitewater rafting and bivouac trip along the mighty Pai River.

Pick up the pace as you explore the heart of the Thai uplands on this multi-day paddling excursion in the lesser-known environs of Namtok Mae Surin National Park. Discover hot-springs, waterfalls and gorges on the way and spend a great night in harmony with the nature in your own jungle camp - finishing your journey in the ancient Shan city of Mae Hong Son.

Situated in the heart of Namtok Mae Surin National Park, the Pai River is a class III-IV waterway that runs through the Himalayan Mae Hong Son Province. Home to hill tribes such as the Shan and Hmong, the city is overlooked by Wat Phrathat Doi Kongmu, a Burmese-style monastery with 2 ornate white chedis (stupas) built in the 19th century. A 60km route through the middle section of the river where the Pai meets the Mekong (the world's twelfth longest river) seasonal variations in flow and the presence of rapids and waterfalls make it a popular whitewater rafting location.

A two-day whitewater rafting and bivouac excursion along the Pai River, this 60km route blends challanging rapids with the raw and untamed nature of Namtok Mae Surin National Park. Organised over two full days and covering 60 rapids, the excursion itinerary includes wild camping along the river bank - offering an authentic adventure experience.

Day 1: (Distance=25 km; Time=4 hours; 30 rapids)
Starting in the rural village of Pai, meet your lead guide and kit up before travelling into the heart of the national park. Set off down the river and test your technique on small rapids - stopping for lunch before you pass through the gorge for the class III-IV Fragrance Rapids. After conquering around 15 rapids, you'll work on your teamwork and technique before setting up camp in the dense jungle - cooking on a wood fire and sharing stories until the last cinders.

Day 2: (Distance= 35 km; Time= 5 hours; 30 rapids)
Pack up your camp and set off down the river for the class III Red Cliff rapids that await at the Khong River junction - taking a break at local hot springs before you jump back in the raft and paddle towards the Rising Stone Rapids (about 5 rapids from 100 to 400 meters long, grade 2-3 ). Stopping for lunch, later you'll reach the Pai Gorge for your final set of rapids before you glide into the wide, calm Mae Hong Son Valley and before a short transfer to Mae Hong Son. A transfer back to Pai (110 km / 2 h) is also available.

The middle section of the Pai River meets the Mekong resulting in class III-IV rapids. Covering 60 rapids, the first section includes moderate, irregular waves where complex manoeuvres in fast current and good boat control in tight passages are often required. Depending on the season, intense, powerful but predictable rapids may be present - requiring precise boat handling in turbulent water. Available from early June to the middle of February, routes may be amended depending on water levels - the best time for rafting is from October to March.
