Fly Like Hanuman
Fill your adrenaline to the max by jumping from tree tops and freely flying while taking in a bird’s-eye view of a natural jungle and breathing in fresh air at Flying Hanuman. It is not just a must-try adventure activity; Flying Hanuman offers you a chance to get real close to nature as its location is in the jungle of Kathu where huge decades old trees are well preserved across an 80,000sqm area.
Arriving at the lobby, the shady jungle surrounding it already makes you feel you’re in a completely different world.
After receiving a wristband, you will be grouped with other adventure lovers and provided an introduction as to what’s to come, as well as be informed of the Dos and Don’ts by an experienced guide who will accommodate, entertain, take care and play with your fear along the trip, but fully guarantee for your safety.
Getting ready at the foothill, the guides will kit you up with all necessary safety equipment, and then the adventure really starts with a trek up a high the hill.
En route you will be surrounded by lofty trees and meandering slopes.
It’s time for the adventure to start, and you’re going to take in 28 zip-line stations covering different lengths, heights and styles. Even the first station, although really for newbies, is enough to make you scream out loud.
After the adventure, delicious Thai cuisine awaits at the restaurant located next to the lobby.The comfort food and fresh fruit is a great energizer and the perfect end to the trip.
Aside from Flying Hanuman, there’s an upcoming project “Hanuman World” which will be a completely different experience.
Located in another thick forest in Kathu, Hanuman World provides more new activities to try amongst decades to century old rain trees. This adventure will give you a real Tarzan, or Jane, like experience as you swing from tree to tree.
Recently awarded at the 10th Thailand Tourism Award (Kinnaree) 2015 in recognition of their excellent recreation venue, and awarded Tripadvisor’s Certificate of Excellence based on the five stars rating by guests on Tripadvisor, Flying Hanuman is a unique adventure we advise any visitor or resident of Phuket to experience, especially those who seek an extra adrenaline kick.
The first few stations are just zip-lines, but once you starting reaching the higher point stairs are also an obstacle and the drop below begins to increase. But there’s no changing your mind by this stage.
At the speeds you fly through the air, and at the heights you’re traveling, which are way above the ground beneath you, your stomach will bounce. The latter stations you visit, the higher and more thrilling the adventure becomes.
By the middle of the trip, you will also be released from amazingly high trees – the tallest being around 50 meters high –, similar to bungee jumping and being just as exhilarating. Don’t be afraid to scream out loud, it does help!
One of the thrilling of zip-lines is 400 meters long, and if you’re lucky, the guide will choose you to be the Superman amongst your group. This means you will be in front of the guide, stretching your arms and legs like a starfish while he is behind you holding your legs.
This gives a different view and thrill as you’re forced to face what’s bellow – treetops – and fly like a bird for the same distance of a football field. Your two hours will be filled with a perfect mix of joy and fear, but at the end, you’re adrenaline will be at its peak.Flying Hanuman
