Umphang Thailand Rafting

Umphang Rafting. 


After the rather flat and green surrounding at Umphang village the limestone cliffs with spectacular beauty surrounds us in silence this is spectacular Thailand outdoor travel.  

We glide downstream through rapids which are cutting the brown fast water and after every bend a new surprising panorama.The cold brown water full of sediment drives the raft beside rapids and waves. Steep limestone walls sharp bends and a waterfall from time to time are a challenge for our guides

Umphang Rafting in Thailand

The cold brown water full of sediment drives the raft beside rapids and waves. Steep limestone walls sharp bends and a waterfall from time to time are a challenge for our guides.



Booking a rafting trip in Umphang is simple.

Booking a rafting trip is simple since almost every guesthouse has its own rafting crew with a professional experience. 


They are good organized and know the river the inflatable boats (known as rafts) and the gear.

Thailand rafting day tour

This stops during monsoon because of  rough torrents and flash floods there are no trips at that period of the year,

Rushing water catapults us over wave crests its good not to sit in a rickety canoe since incoming streams and fallen trees provide additional turbulence as visible in the Video.


Thailand adventure rafting

Only a few hundred visitors make the trip to this remote area every year over the ever winding hairpin road.

But this wilderness along the border is something special. Most locals handling the tour are Karen from the Myanmar side the reason is they speak English most Thai don’t.

White water rafting is a sport nearly everyone can do and here its very safe if its done outside the rainy season when river's water level moves up and down not several meters every day.
