  • Hi Our son and his wife organized for us to go on this elephant tour as they both know that elephants are my favourite and respected animals. We did not expect so much quality and up front and persona...  more »
  • 这个国家公园的热带雨林不错,去往瀑布的路程也很美,就是交通不是很便利,我们租了辆摩托车从镇上开了半小时才到,不过不枉此行 
  • Beautiful jungle! Quietly located. Half day tour booked through hotel. Super beautiful waterfalls visited with a guide, and then an hour elephant. Elephants have, in my opinion, a ' good ' life. Be nice! Wonderful trip through the jungle, and then plenty of time to take pictures with the elephants. Very nice experience. We have enjoyed this tour!

  • 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.
