You’ve seen the movies: James Bond is ultra-cool, ready to save the world, seduce a beautiful woman and preform death-defying stunts. [tweet_dis]Think you can match James Bond for bravery? Try rapelling down the 100m Wang Thong limestone waterfall in Chiang Mai[/tweet_dis]. by taking this tour.
Run by Bon Voyage Thailand, this tour will first brief you on how to safely operate the abseiling equipment. You’ll then hike through dense tropical jungle and arrive at the top of the waterfall. The awe-inspiring sight and deafening sound of this scenery is worth the trip alone.
But don’t get too comfortable: it’s time to jump. Imagine being surrounded by dozens of machine gun-toting militiamen, yourself unarmed. Or maybe you don’t need to imagine any 007 scenario to get excited about jumping off a 100m high limestone cliff, wind and bits of water-spray peppering your face.
After this, you can relax in the naturally formed “jacuzzi” at the base of the waterfall. The water is pure, clear and clean. The swim at the bottom offers a refreshing contrast to the adrenaline-pumping experience you’ve just had, abseiling from the top down. It’s the perfect end to an exciting day.
