Thailand is a tropical country that boasts of its luscious rainforest, and the mountain streams running through the forests in all regions. These streams diverse their courses through the forest, some part so wild they become rapid and at some point, become mild and gentle stream. Rafting along these streams provides excitement while going through the fierce rapids and more relaxing time while the water slows down to a leisure pace that rafters can rest their arms and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the forest along the water way. Tropical forests reveal their astonishing beauty and wonder. These are the places visitors can see wild floras and plants and towering trees of diverse types trying to force their way up to the sky to reach the sun, the great botanical diversity all in one place. In these rich tropical forests, visitors can also see colorful wild flowers in strange shapes, hear the calls of gibbons from afar, see a bright colored kingfisher along the stream waiting to catch fishes. On some trees, there were hundreds of wild beehives hanging on the twigs, just like a natural condominium. While gliding along the stream on a smooth ride, visitors can sometimes spot a big flock of hornbills flying pass by making loud noises over one's head.
Visitors can experience the charm and treasure of tropical rain forests in all regions of Thailand. The important thing to know is that rafting in each water varies in difficulty, from easy level (class 1-2), moderate level (class 3-4) to the hard level (class 4-5). In some water, it takes only one hour, while in other, it may take days. In some water, visitors require 3 days to complete the trip with 2-night camping in the forest.
