Hanging By a Wire

zip line thailand
We made sure to bring our Go Pro along to capture for photos and video!

I felt like our stay in Chiang Mai was one adrenaline rush after another. And our trip with Jungle Flight zip line was no exception. I’m the first to admit Jeremy and I are more than a little a.d.d. when it comes to traveling. We’re all for relaxing, getting massages (and at $15 for an hour, who could resist?!) or lying by the beach. But for the most part, we keep this to a minimum. We’re just so antsy to see everything we can while we’re in a different places. We agreed, however, that once we left Chiang Mai and headed south, that would be when we would lounge on the beach(spoiler alert: that didn’t happen either. We spent a total of an hour on the beach before we found a cave and decided to ditch the beach and go explore. This is probably the reason why I came back from Thailand just as pale as I went).zip line thailand

While we were in Chiang Mai, we wanted to take advantage of every opportunity we could, and one of these opportunities was zip lining. It’s something we had always wanted to do and were were so excited we were able to do so in a large rain forest. There are several companies to choose from but we chose to go with a smaller company, Jungle Flight zip line, and we’re so glad we did. Not only did we find a special deal that made it about $65 per person (down from $89 a person) but the personalized attention and fun loving staff were some of the highlights of our experiences. Along with views like this:

We chose to do Course B which included 24 platforms and 16 zip lines and one 40 meter abseil. (I wasn’t so excited about this part as you can tell. Something about falling straight down just doesn’t get me excited. They didn’t exactly hold back on the speed either.)

One of the longest zip lines we were actually attached to the line from the back, making it more of a ‘superman’ feel. This was probably the scariest one for because unlike the regular zip lines where you sat down and could feel the tension on the line right away, this took a few seconds after you jumped off the platform for it to catch. Making it feel like a free fall over the large gorge below.

    Hi Chelsea, I’m so happy I found your blog through Rolled Up Pretty’s link up. Your face in the middle picture (before your 40m abseil) had me cracking up – I’d be feeling the same way! Hope you and your hubby continue having fun exploring Thailand (and maybe get to relax on a beach day or two) 😀

    Hello Chelsea! My name is Vashti and I’m a fiction writer. I came across your bog via the Meet & Greet Blog Hop! I’m so glad I did! Your pictures are awesome. I love to travel! I have zip lined in several places, and every time my face looked like yours just before staring. It’s so funny. Great blog! I’ll definitely be back.

    This looks so much fun! I was just in Guam and there was a sort of “eh” zip line that we decided not to use because it looked totally boring! This means I’m still waiting for my first real zip line experience.

    That looks like so much fun!!! I’ve only zip lined down a mountain before and really want to do one with more than one line! :)

    If you like adrenaline and enjoyed every part of that trip.. you should go to Puerto Rico to Toro Verde! Really exciting and beautiful too! 😛

    I absolutely LOVE zip lining! My husband and I did it when we went to Gatlinburg, TN and had a phenomenal time. It definitely gives you a whole new perspective on the world and how we see it! I would do it again in a heart beat! Looks like y’all had a ton of fun! Thanks for sharing your trip =) Stopping by from “Lovely Blog Hop!”

    Looks like so much fun! I have always wanted to try it

    You guys sound like us. We love to relax, but every time we go on a trip, we’re always running around.

    Zip lining in a jungle is my dream. We do it at the zoo but it’s obviously not as intense. Your facial expressions in these photos crack me up. :)

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/09406668508655100543 Rachel O.

    AMAZING. Always a “go” for ziplining. I’ve only been a few times (and mostly mini ones through the woods – it’d be much cooler if it was a rainforest), but I LOVE them. And ps: Ah! You have a Go Pro!! That’s top of my list for a birthday/anniversary/Christmas gift this year.

    Beautiful photos! My sister went to Chiang Mai last summer and fell absolutely in love with it – I can’t wait to visit someday! Your expressions are priceless in these pictures – I can only imagine how it must’ve felt in real life!

    I’m giving away a birthday box of goodies at my blog – it’d be wonderful to see you join! :)

    Have a wonderful Wednesday!

    Zip lining is a MUST! We went on our honeymoon but unfortunately we couldn’t bring our camera with us because several times we zip lined into a sonata. If only we had a go pro… :) Looks like you two had a blast. This beats sitting on a beach any day!
