    Rock climbing is fun, spend a day or two learning and visit the caves. I did this on a combination tour with the flight of the gibbon. treetopasia.com

  • 7. Mountain biking

    Downhill biking in the national park. Lots of wildlife. Great fun, again I did this in conjunction with the flight of the gibbon. We stayed with a homestay program in Mae Kompong. Lovely experience. Not to be missed.
