According to Skyworld Adventure, total investment in Hanuman World is more than B100 million, and is Skyworld Adventure’s second aerial ecotourism and zip-line adventure theme park after Flying Hanuman.

Skyworld Adventure is part of a business that operates water sports and tours on the popular Banana Beach Koh Hey, and also owns a string of highly popular restaurants in Phuket.

With Hanuman World, there will be more of an adventure than just ziplining, a straight-line adventure, with the addition of a one kilometre “Roller” that will take riders curving around the trees.

Also for the first time, along with Thai and English speaking guides, Chinese and Russian speakers will be on-hand to guide park visitors.

In addition, Hanuman World boasts a 200-metre long sky-walk that sits above the tropical forest, platforms positioned high in the tree tops, and a 200-seat Wanon restaurant with stunning mountain views.

For its zip-line adventure, Hanumarn World offers three abseil points with heights ranging from 15 40 metres and a straight zip-line covering a distance of over 500 metres.

Zip-lining has long been popular, but more recently it has gone in two distinct directions, the first as a more extreme sport, while the other as a eco-friendly activity. Many zip-line adventures around the world however, are a combination of the two.

“To infinity and beyond,” is a phrase often yelled out by many on a zip-line before they take the plunge, and it will certainly be no different at Hanuman World.

New Paths Retreat

Skyworld Adventure’s Flying Hanuman has been highly successful being ranked by TripAdvisor.com as the fourth best adventure tourism activity out of 1,012 reviews on the site. And based on this ranking, Hanuman World’s future has already been built on solid foundations.

The Unites Nations has designated 2017 as the “Year of Sustainable Tourism” and thus, Phuket’s tourism leaders are stressing not only eco friendly tourism, but environmental sustainable tourism as well.

Hanuman World’s utilisation of the higher layers of Phuket rainforest is done using wooden platforms and industrial strength slings to hold the platforms and bridges together and in place, with little disturbance to the surrounding trees.

Hanuman World uses equipment from PETZL, which is rated the highest safety equipment, and each group of tourist is accorded 2 professionally trained guide, with one being a senior guide. In addition, for every person on aerial adventure at Hanuman World, there are five safety connection points.

Hanuman World, with a vast area of Phuket’s tropical rainforest as its main feature, is easily accessible being located on Muang Chao Fa Road.

Hanuman World is an adrenaline and excitement filled Eco tourism adventure which gets its name from Lord Hanuman.

Lord Hanuman, also known as “The Monkey King”, is a Hindu god and ardent devotee of the god Rama. He is a central figure in the Hindu epic Ramayana and its various versions. Thailand also has a versions of this epic and is accorded as a high Thai performing art.
