    I haven't seen any signs of double pricing anywhere.
    There are literally dozens and dozens of these places in the UK.

    thanks. I'm not English and where I come from, nobody has ever even heard of anything like this. I thought it was more special.

    The UK got an early start in this activity-my one experience was in the early 1960's with a rope slung at angle across a valley and tied off at two trees with a pulley. No insurance, no helmets etc.
    Something that would give the "Fun Police" (overzealous public health and safety officers) nightmares now days!

    These are fairly common in tropical tourist areas. I have personally been on 5 different ones in Mexico, two in Costa Rica, one in Panama, one in Belize, and one in Brazil. Next time I'm in the Chiang Mai area I'll have to give this one a try.

    On a similar theme, another of my favorite outings was "Canyoning" or "Canyoneering" in Costa Rica. Trekking through the jungle on the flank of an active volcano, rappelling down the canyon walls - in the midst of a waterfall, yes, actually rappelling down the waterfall and getting soaking wet!! Great fun! This is the company that runs the tour, and also one of the zip line tours I've done in Costa Rica
    www.arenal.net/tour/pure-trek-costa-rica.htm
    Good pictures here -- the slide show on the page gives you a good idea of rappelling down a waterfall in a very tight, deep canyon.

    I'd upload my own pictures (and properly insert the link above), but I have to get my post count up to 15 first

    Hello Nymue,

    I am also going to try the jungle flight in april.
    I have noted that the price is about B2,200 for the zip wire experience. Also included in the price is your pick up, and a visit to the hot springs. It looks like you will be looking at a seven hour all round trip.
    Have a look at the site that Betti kindly posted.

    I am also scared of heights!...but i hope to find the courage to try it.
    Good Luck,
    Have a great time in april.

    ORMojo, thank you for sharing your experiences. I'm not a world traveller, moreover, I am a lazy big bum couch potato, I get tired even climbing more than 10 flights of stairs. but I love adventure like rafting or this zipline thing because it is within my limits. in a next life, I would like to try things like mountain climbing and waterfalls, everything in the meantime, I enjoy reading about them.

    Re: Jungle flight adventure in Chiang Mai

    When I did the jungle adventure they picked us up at the hotel and took us to a waterfall which had lots of steps. I am a quite fit 60 year old man but I was really exhausted when i got to the top then we had to come down again.

    We then had lunch and afterwards went on the jungle flight which was brilliant they then took us back to the hotel, We did not go to the hot springs.

    I have been to the hot springs and it is a good day out on its own.

    Keith
