Flying Hanuman: Ziplining Through Phuket’s Forests

Things to Do — By Diana Bocco on February 4, 2012 at 11:40 am


Flying Hanuman is a one-of-a-kind adventure. Opened in December 2011,  this ziplining adventure allows you to fly among the trees, hanging from steel cables at highs of over 130 feet (40 meters) above the ground.

Once you reach the first platform (using a giant spiral staircase built around a tree), you can then zipline between platforms (28 in total), as well as cross skybridges and experience one of the highest abseiling lines in Thailand.

Flying Hanuman’s course was built in a way that doesn’t harm any of the trees used. In
fact, the course is the only way to explore this patch of Phuket’s virgin forest and experience some of the best views of the surrounding greenery, home to hillside tribes and a large number of endangered animal species.

Although ziplining will get your adrenaline pumping, it’s also perfectly safe. You wear a harness and are attached to a pulley the whole time, so there’s no risk of slipping and falling off. The equipment is top-of-the-line and each pulley can sustain weights of up to 2 tons, making this a safe adventure for people of all ages and sizes.

The whole course takes several hours to complete and you’re always accompanied by two experience guides, who escort the group from platform to platform not only ensuring safety but also making the whole experience a lot of fun!
