CHIANG MAI, 14 June 2019: Flight of the Gibbon Chiang Mai reopened last week after securing police clearance, almost two months after a fatal zip line accident on 13 April.

 

Police in Chiang Mai gave the green light for the popular attraction to resume bookings and sales of zip line packages that cost a minimum of THB4,199 for the two-hour ride through the treetops.

 

Unconfirmed reports blamed the accident on “metallurgic failure,” although the investigation report has not been officially made public.
