Flight of the Gibbon – Zip-lining – 15/1/2013

Flight of the Gibbons is a ecologically-friendly and stable zip-lining tour that runs in several locations across Thailand. It supports the rainforest in which is is situated, especially the gibbons for which it is named.

 

We went to the zip-lining in Koh Chang Forest. We had to put on harnesses and helmets. At a platform, a man told us how to do it, then we ziplined through the forest. It felt like when you fell off a tube. We went on the longest zipline which was the best. We went on a sky bridge and it felt like the poles would break. We went abseiling which felt like I was plummeting down to certain death. We had lunch then went to the top of a waterfall and then went to the hotel.
