This is a place where you won't be sitting around, so be prepared for an active and unique adventure! There are three experiences to choose from. The Classic Gibbon Experience (3 days, 2 nights) - perfect for beginner hikers and spotting gibbons. The Waterfall Gibbon Experience (3 days, 2 nights) goes deeper in the Nam Kan National Park, through rivers and waterfalls, best for those with a previous hiking experience.
