Rafting, Canoeing

White Water Rafting Due to Kanchanaburi's mountainous terrain with legions of forests and rivers, the area is ideal for rafting. Special tours, in particular, can be arranged from a mountain pass to the fabulous Lawa Cave. Those who love adventure on a swift tide can contact tour agencies in the province to guide and provide rafts and canoes. For further details, please contact the TAT Kanchanaburi Office. The well-known rafting and canoeing routes in Kanchanaburi are as follows:

  1. Noi River: From Ban Maenam Noi to Namtok Sai Yok Yai. (canoe and bamboo raft; three hours).

Kanchanaburi has now turned into the most popular spot in the country for freshwater fishing with the most favourite location of all being Phae Nam Jone River, a two hour boat ride from Srinakharin Dam. Fish that can be caught include: the Giant Gourami, the Transverse Bellbarb, the Giant Snake-head Fish and the Striped Tiger Nandid. Each of these fish is part of the locally famed fish cuisine.
