For a limited time, starting March 1, 2012, Flight of the Gibbon, the original zipline canopy tour in Chiang Mai and the Chiang Mai Zoo are offering a multi-day tour package called, “Gibbon 2 Zoo”.

Flight of the Gibbon’s zipline canopy tour originates from the ancient village of Mao Kompong in the jungle about 55 minutes from Chiang Mai. High atop the trees are platform lookouts, sky bridges and stations that allow ‘flyers’ to abseil down from the tall trees. Up to five kilometers of ziplines propel visitors through different layers of the rainforest canopy. Soar between up to 39 different stations, just like our namesake ‘Gibbons’, who visitors often see in the trees nearby. Each zipline adventure includes pick up and transportation to and from Chiang Mai, about 3 hours up in the treetops, lunch, and a waterfall trek after the zipline tour concludes.
The Chiang Mai Zoo places an emphasis on replicating the habitats of the nearly 400 different species visitors can see there, including elephants, tigers, chimpanzees, hippopotami, and the only rhino in Thailand. The zoo also features some outstanding special attractions such as the zoo's stars - Chuang Chuang and Lin Hui, two young pandas, and a walk through aviary. The package includes a ride on the zoo’s Tram which takes visitors around the attractions and includes educational and environmental details about the animals and their habitats. The zoo’s freshwater aquarium and snow dome are not included but can be purchased at the zoo.
