  • A wonderful park. First, we had looked at the Huai to waterfall. Very very nice. It comes quite close to the waterfall and can swim even in one of the pools if you want. The waterfall is located in the middle of the jungle. Then we went to the elephant farm in the Park. Where the elephants live together with your 'people 'families together in the Park. Simply wonderful. An elephant trekking tour through the undergrowth. We had not believed in life, that it comes through. But the elephants are quite safe and plodded through the jungle but also cautious with us. After we washed a smaller elephant cow and bathed her in the river. According to our estimates really a good elephant trekking tours. Highly recommended.

  • We climbed only to the 3rd or 4th waterfall. I hiked further but nothing to see for quite a ways so i returned. It was not crowded at all, few people

  • We had to drive very far to get there and then we were a little disappointed what the park had to offer. The waterfall itself wasn't so special after all and we ended up doing a short hike through the jungle. It was an interesting and unique experience with a lot of strange noises from all kinds of animals.
  • One of the place you must visit if you would like to spend holidays in Krabi. Nice to see the greenery and waterfalls inside the forest. If you like driving, rent a bike to reach the Park.
  • Incredible scooter ride up to the park. The walk up to the waterfalls is so rewarding for the swim in the pools below.
  • 100bht entry wonderfull high waterfall..... just avoid the jungle path, its very steep for 2 hours, and nothing special to see.
  • Definitely worth a visit just note no entry after 4.30pm and closes at 6pm. Worth taking a towel and wearing swimming shorts then go all the way to the top pool and take a dip beautifully clear and cool water and there is a shower and toilet at the base of the waterfall.
