Emerald Pool (Sa Morakot), Krabi Town

3.6
#4 of 11 in Nature in Krabi Town
Geologic Formation Nature / Park
Plunge into the warm, clear waters at Emerald Pool (Sa Morakot), a hot spring tucked away in a thick forest. The main spring has become famous for its turquoise color, and is as good for a relaxing swim as it is photogenic. Take a hike through the area to enjoy the lush woods, and consider arranging for a guide to show you around and point out all the animals that call this edenic landscape home. Make sure to explore as much of the area as possible: plenty of more secluded pools are hiding off the beaten track.

  • Normally people go to the travel agent to go here but if you're a solo travel or as a couple, the cheapest way to go here is by renting a bike. The rental fee of the bike is around 250baht max(full da...  more »
  • This is one of the sleekest place hidden gems of Krabi. No Mas RA, Emerald, no trip to Krabi. AHA, so I want you to come again to prove that it is true words he ran on behalf of Emerald silk water. that occurs naturally in the forest seems to be complete is called the forest, it has the size of four tennis courts. The color of the emerald green water clear as If the image is not removed, try to find a bottle of Sprite. because the color bottle sprite with watercolors of the Emerald is the same around the pool, surrounded by a forest. To a distance of about two kilometers, Emerald pool. Over (I think probably more than that), shady. The walking trail is the Park comfort made better referred to as concrete, almost all the way there are signposts periodically. During the walk you will see capacity Observatory. But before you come across the pool ...

  • A great place for the whole family. It's a 1.4km walk through the jungle which is worth it by it's self. The pool is amazing. Be very careful for the rocks as they are very slippy.
  • Emerald pool was absolutely amazing! The crystal clear water was totally picturesque - it almost didn't seem real. My sister & I had a really tranquil & peaceful experience - we would definitely come back! Unfortunately the infamous blue pool was closed when we were there though - it's only open to the public from November to April. However, a wary note, be sure to get here early (the park opens at 8am) - we were leaving around 10-10:30 & saw at least 100 people​ making their way to the pool (which is definitely not big enough to hold everyone!).
  • Wonderful pool with limestone hill view. Some place is prohibited for tourist to enter, the limestone slope. The Blue Pool also closed after 3 pm. Really beautiful natural green algae after effect. The small waterfall near the entrance also won't disappoint you. In case you're too tired to walk few miles up to the pool. The forest also well kept with many tropical plants to learn about.
  • Crowded because of main tourist attraction. Food provided by the tour was bad. If not mistaken, majority of tour will lunch at same restaurant. Water is greenwich. But no cooling. Be aware of the floor is slip.
  • Bit of a travel from Krabi or Ao Nang. Don't go for the exclusive(expensive ) tour packages, take a bike and use Google maps to travel :) it's fun. Once you reach the place, their is an entry ticket for entry. Walk till the emerald pool, then their is the blue pool which is a bit walking from the emerald pool, nothing much to see on the way( I was not impressed by the blue pool, the walking was difficult+ you can't jump in the blue pool). Carry some extra clothes, and plastic bags to take your wet cloths. Use some cheap water resistant bags while traveling, carry some snakes and drinks. And make sure you have enough fuel in your bike it's difficult getting a pump once you leave the nearest city ;)
