Not the first time someone has died at the Canyon but for the 3rd time in 12 months someone has died at what expats sometime called the Chiang Mai Grand Canyon but is just an old quarry that has become popular in recent times as the place to “cliff dive”. I have a good post about the Chiang Mai Quarry if you want to know where it’s at. This time it was a Korean national that died and while the news story doesn’t say how I suspect it’s the same as the other two who died which was from cramps. For people who are rarely active in hot water jumping into cold water then climbing up a cliff will give you cramp if you aren’t stretched. Will the authorities close the place down? Well pretty sure your not supposed to jump there anyway but what are they going to do lock you up for jumping into water? That’s crazy. So at least for now if you’re going to do it make sure you are physically equipped.
