Wiang Kum Kham Old City Challenge (Read more/less.)

Brief Description: Wieng Kum Kham  was a town a few kilometres south of present day Chiang Mai, which was founded in 1286 by Mengrai, King of the Lanna Kingdom. The Wiang, which means “fortified town” was built on the site of an earlier Mon settlement from the days of the Hariphunchai Kingdom. It was evacuated after a decade of repeated seasonal flooding, with the capital seat being relocated to what is now Chiang Mai.

The team building programme consists of a number of individual challenges, each built around the traditional crafts, traditions, pastimes, activities that people of this earlier era practiced or took part in  their daily lives. These challenges, the mode of transport used to travel between them, and their close proximity to each other - cutting down travel time, are what differentiates this the Wieng Kum Kham Challenge, and the Chiang Mai City Challenge.

  • The rules and objectives of each challenge.
  • The points available.

When ready to set off, their appointed team facilitator logs them out of Challenge control, and directs them to board their designated transport (by foot, bicycle, pedicar, or songtaew) and set off to their designated first challenge. Whilst en route, they must start to choose and plan their next preferred challenge using the selection criteria explained in the introduction.

They complete as many challenges as they can, accruing as many points as possible, during the time available, returning to the hotel/resort by the appointed time.

Jungle Survival Challenge (Read more/less.)

Brief Description: Scenario You were attending a company event in the mountains north of Chiang Mai and were returning to your hotel/resort along remote back roads when an earthquake struck.

The road was destroyed in many places, the vehicle overturned, the driver broke a leg and several ribs, but otherwise the rest of the group suffered only minor cuts and bruises.

Cell phone towers are down and so there are no communications. Tremors may bring more landslides.

It is 1700hrs in the evening and will be dark by around 1830 hrs., it is getting cold and it looks like it will rain. You are 30kms from the  city, and do not know the condition of the terrain between you and the city. You are now in survival mode.

To test your survival skills, teach you new ones, and to improve planning, communication and teamwork, your team is required to undertake  a set of challenges that cover: Water, Shelter, Fire, Food and Medevac (Medical Evacuations.)

On arrival at the site, you will be introduced to our small group of forest rangers/guides, who are on hand to ensure you use the right techniques when cutting bamboo, making fire etc., to ensure your safety. Then, using a flip chart with diagrams, demonstrations of the techniques to be used, and reminders on safety, teams set off for their designated work sites.

Once there, they plan their approach, deciding which team members should undertake particular tasks, and which tasks are best undertaken by all, before commencing their tasks to the best of their ability.

  • Ensure their safety.
  • To translate for them.
  • To make sure they follow the rules.
  • To make sure local customs are observed.

He advocated this approached for Thai farmers, over the chemical based mono-crop, chemical grown, export market driven alternative.
