Chiang Mai is an enviable city; you just have to drive out the west end a few miles and you are in the middle of the jungle at Doi Suthep-Pui National Park, nestled among a plethora of natural and cultural sights. If you choose to drive east, you’ll encounter the quaint crafts village of San Kamphaeng, explore Muang On Cave and its relaxing at Sankampang hot springs. And if you head a little further, a small village in the woods awaits you. Yes, this is where you can rappel along a line like a shot from a sling. It is an exciting and spectacular interaction with nature and should be one of the most satisfying experiences of your life. Ban Mae Kampong is located in Mae On sub-district, adjacent to San Kamphaeng. This village is a popular natural tourist attraction and also hosts an interesting Community Learning Center. Just an hour’s drive from the city, Mae Kampong village is abundant in natural resources; it has a stream running through it, and a tea-tree forest surrounding it.
