The Flying Hanuman
The beautiful, sunny weather is beckoning us to go out and enjoy challenging outdoor activitiesagain. We agreed on trying something new and it had to be a total adrenaline rush.
So, we brought ourselves to the ‘Flying Hanuman’, a zip line park with the signature monkey head greeting visitors at the entrance. We then entered the lobby where guests must fill out forms at the registration desk. There are 3 programs to choose from ranging from mildly exciting to adrenaline quenching. Today, we chose to go all the way to base 28.
Before starting, participants must study all the rules and equipment usage to really enjoy soaring through the air. We heard a voice calling from above signaling for us to hurry up and enjoy the ride.
Our gang trekked up through the thick forest and reached first base. Our hearts started pounding as we had to walk across the tall tree-bridge; we didn’t even dare to look down. From there, we swung from tree to tree, starting from short distances then further and further as we proceeded. Fear is now replaced by a mad rush of fun at every turn.
Next, we walked up a spiral staircase and abseiled 40 meters down below; the tallest base in southern Thailand. I really loved this base even though my heart was pounding so hard when the sling stopped right before I hit the ground. After that was the Sky Skateboard base where views of Phuket’s ocean can be seen from afar.
The final challenge was soaring across 400 meters on the longest zip line. Here, our instructor advised that we should let loose, have fun and scream like a Hanuman or spread our arms as though to fly off into the sunset. Each of us had absolutely enough adrenaline rush to last ourselves a lifetime. Come and see for yourself how much fun zip line flying can be!
