Khlong Klai is originated from the Krung Ching Forest in the Khao Nan National Park and Khao Luang National Park. It is considered as one of the perfect white-water rafting courses for inflatable boats and kayaks.
The rafting course has 2 different distances. The first one is “Pak Khlong Phitam to Lan Hin Dan” which takes 1.5 hours for the total distance of 2.5 km. The second is “Pak Khlong Phitam to Ban Thung Nai”, taking 3 hours for a distance of 6 km.
The Klai canal is narrow and shallow and has a dozen rapids with lots of flora all around. The rapids vary from large boulders to narrow channels with the levels of difficulty from 1-3. At the beginning, the current is calm so you can appreciate the green natural scenery on both sides while paddling. As you continue, you’ll be exhilarated by dozens of challenging rapids; such as, “Kaeng Hin Mon”, “Kaeng Chong Puen”, “Kaeng Pra”, “Kaeng Ya Nat” and many more. Along the course, there are experienced rescue staff standing by to ensure your safety.
