Jungle Xtrem Adventures Park in Phuket

Challenging Tree Climbing Activity in Chalong

For those extremists amongst us there’s now a brand-new challenge to take up in the hills – Xtremeadventures aka Phuket Tree Adventure. On a hillside spanning 19,200sqm and based in a rubber plantation above Wat Chalong, Phuket Tree Adventure is truly impressive in several aspects.

There are no less than 69 ‘Stations’ – activities – up there including tightropes, ‘flying fox’, net walking, several different types of bridges and more – plus all the time you’ll be attached to a harness. The company was among the first treetop park developers in France and has had extensive experience since in the development of parks in France, Holland and now Asia. Health & Safety standards are sky high, starting with independent, regular documented and certified inspections of the trees (mostly rubber) and all top-rate equipment guaranteed for years.

Phuket Tree Adventure has a firm and unbending list of safety rules that are explained to punters when first arriving at the shady reception area. Every player is equipped by an operator with a safety harness, a double lanyard, two karabiners, one sling and a pulley.

Long hair must be attached and necklaces removed; appropriate shoes must be worn; the safety harness must be worn and attached to the red life line; no drinking from cans due to risk of bees and wasps – and many more rules, all making perfect sense and strictly adhered to.

 

The gradient up the hill towards the activities is tough going and we only then begin to appreciate just how fabulously fit the PTA team have to be to daily chaperone guests around this grueling terrain.

There are in total 69 ‘stations’ (activities) to choose from with nine Blue stations marked ‘easy, followed by another set of Blue ‘easy’ stations but further up the hill the tough get going, as it were. 12 Red ‘difficult’ stations are followed by nine Black ‘challenging’ stations. 

The safety harness is indispensable and helps make light of the climbing, balancing, jumping and swinging, even flying activities going in the treetops, and what’s more players cannot attach it themselves – it is only attached by a supervisor.

Having said that, there is one particular area where safety harnesses can be taken off and that’s the Accro Spider that allows players to roll freeform in what appears to be a huge spider web. Balancing on airborne steps or climbing vertically up a tree then ‘flying’ over to the next one is a real challenge and only a certain percentage of participants do or can finish all the 69 stations but one thing is for certain: the bird’s eye views out over eastern Phuket lend the whole experience a sense of awe.

PTA has a dedicated children’s section and there’s no doubt that this experience is an educational one, and not just for the little ones.

The hillside is dotted with open-sided, thatched-roof ‘salas’ or huts for those who opt out or want to take a rest. Above reception sits a restaurant for after-event celebration (or commiseration) and an industrial-sized fan along with cooled water and energy drinks awaits at reception to cool players down.

PTA is challenging, tough, exhilarating and a pretty unforgettable experience. Given the high safety standards it also comes highly recommended. See Phuket Tree Adventure Photo Gallery...
