Day 3 Kayaking expedition on the Lam Takhong river and mountain bike expedition. The Lam Takhong river comes down from the National Park and passes through Pak Chong on its way to the Lam Takhong reservoir. Much of the year it is passable along most of its length, but the narrow channel and overhanging trees and many wiers make it an interesting challenge. Chinese water dragons are often seen on trees overhanging the river. There are also many kilometers of track and minor road passing through spectacular scenery for mountain bikers with interesting stops along the way from Chokchai dairy farm to a giant white Buddha statue, from natural springs which offer a cool swim in the heat of the day to vinyards where one can sample the local vintage, to an elephant sanctuary where one can interact with resued elephants and learn about the threats to wild elephants from an acknowledged expert.
