Chiang Mai Forest and Reserve
A forest and jungle hybrid that is a result of efforts of preservation by the Thai government, the Chiang Mai Forest and Reserve is now a haven of healthy ecosystems and a popular place that houses adorable elephants.
With a number of activities offered in its premises, there’s no moment of boredom in Chiang Mai Reserve. Activities that you can try include a challenging but enjoyable jungle flight, breathtaking zip lines above the lush green forest, facilities that offer good food and refreshment, and even a jaw-dropping Jungle Coaster. The natural features – blooming floras and faunas, fresh air – and its lush and tall towering trees are always a delight to look at. These are just a few reasons why tourists can’t stop visiting Chiang Mai Reserve and Forest again and again. Add the fact that the town itself is a breath of fresh air because it is located near the mountains. Plus, after enjoying the numerous facilities offered by the establishment, the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary is just a short distance away – which means you can visit the gentle giants after your trip to the reserve.
The Chiang Mai Rainforest and Reserve is located in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
