Rope Park on Koh Chang / Tree Top Adventure - First Person Report

Remember how in childhood we all climbed trees? I remember very well that we climbed up on thick oaks and sat there on the branches, chatted and ate cookies. There was even a moment when several like-minded people gathered together and fouled up a hut in the forest, we built it right on the trees, as many as 3 floors turned out ... Apparently ever since I love wood, height, and wooden houses.

I have long wanted to climb the rope park, yessomehow it was not fate. At first, there was nothing like that nearby, I was all looking closely at the Lipetsk region (there is a rope park there), then not so long ago such a thing appeared in Sokolniki, but somehow it’s not natural to climb in the city. Therefore, when I found myself in Koh Chang, I could not get past this adventure park, this is a real jungle with monkeys, besides there are still some zip lines there.

Rope Adventure Park - Tree Top Adventure Park

At the very beginning you will be instructed onEnglish language. Even if you do not know it well, it will not be difficult to understand the meaning. Plus you will be given the opportunity to practice at a height of 50 cm and correct, if something goes wrong. But just in case, I'll tell you, it will be easier to understand later. You will have three pieces of rope hanging on the harness (on the belt), at the end of two will be identical carbines, on the third - the roller (pulley). So carbines - this is insurance, at least one must be attached to the safety cable all the time, which is stretched along the entire route. Since you need to bypass the trees, you need to throw the carbines one by one, in turn. The safety cable is marked with red tape (there are other cables that hold the track), so you will always understand where to hook your carbines. Clip is needed only for zip-lines. You come up, cling to two safety carabiners, and then you catch the roller, put your hands on it from above (there is a platform) and fly over the jungle.

The park is divided into two parts. The first is walking along rope paths (with boards) and another kind of movement between adjacent trees. The second is a few zip lines and a bungee. To go leisurely the entire route, it takes about an hour and a half. These parts are not interconnected, so after passing the first one, a break-snack is taken, and then you have to walk 200 meters to the beginning of the second route. Honestly, tempered extreme lovers have nothing to do there, get some adrenaline. However, if this kind of entertainment is new to you, then I recommend it. Well, and with children, it seems to me, it will be fun too. Since I consider myself to be in the category that is somewhere in the middle, I liked everything, although, of course, I also wanted rope paths more complicated and zip-lines more authentic.

The second part of the park - zip-line

For those who do not know what zip-line(zip-line). This cable is stretched between the trees at an angle, so that you can cling to it at one tree and slip to another. The longer the cable and the greater its inclination, the more sensations. Actually, the most interesting thing in the park. True, ziplines are relatively short in Tree Top Adventure, although it still captures the spirit, I was even a little scared for the first time.

Information to visit

The cost of visiting the park - 950 baht (950 rubles), withoutdifference adult or child. They also have a round-trip shuttle service for 150 baht per person, they carry from the entire west coast from White Sand Beach to Bang Bao. I can not say that the price for this entertainment budget, but if compared with other such parks in Thailand, the price is normal. In Chiang Mai, the Gibbon flight costs 2500 baht, if I'm not mistaken. It will be necessary somehow to try for comparison, maybe this is something completely different. By the way, the price includes water and a plate of fruit, which you share with several other people during the break, but this is so, little things.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
