  • Kayak trip on the Khwae Noi River in Central Thailand (Kanchanaburi area) from Sai Yok Yai until Hin Tok as part of the Khwae Noi River Kayak Route.
  • Technical data:
    • We started off at Sai Yok Yai near the bridge leading to the AH123 just opposite a resort at 0945 Hr for a day of kayaking on the Khwae Noi River. There was a good current estimated at 5 Km/Hr and there were no obstructions on the river. We arrived at Hin Tok River Camp around 1400 Hr, where we stopped for 30 minutes in order to coordinate lodging. We continued downstream for half an hour and arrived at our overnight destination at 1500 Hr. We took no lunch along this stretch, as no catering was available (raft houses served only food in the evening). 
    • The weather was sunny and warm. Max. Temperature was 35.3 C and the wind blew southeast at 18.5 Km/hr, but the latter was hardly tangible in the Khwae Noi valley.
    • Technical data of the trip was as follows: Total Distance: 31.5 Km; Moving Average: 7.3 Km/Hr; Overall Average: 6.1 Km/Hr; Maximum Speed: 14.3 Km/Hr; Moving time: 4 Hr 17 Min; Stopped Time: 51 Min; Total Time: 5 Hr 8 Min.
