Challenge details

You will spend 6 days kayaking, trekking, rafting and riding elephants through the mountains and forests of Thung Yai Nareusan Wildlife Sanctuary.

This challenge takes place in the Kanchanaburi Province, in the West of Thailand. This is the location of the notorious Death Railway and Bridge over Kwai River. A population of Karen, Burmese, Mon and Thai people live in Kanchanaburi. The expedition will lead you through the dense jungles in isolated sections of the province near to the Burmese border.

The Thung Yai region is the home of the Karen people, who live in forest communities and small villages. They will be your guides and hosts for the duration of the challenge, as they know the area better than anyone else. You will stay at night in a Karen village made up of bamboo houses, and in a campsite on the riverbank.

When the challenge has been completed, you will travel back to Bangkok, home of Wat Po and the Royal Palace.
