We visited the park during Elephant Trekking & Huay Toh Waterfall Tour. We didn't find the tour in Klong Muang street agencies, so we booked online trough yourkrabi.com 1 day prior to the tour. You can also search for them as "Huay Tho Waterfall Safari". We liked this small elephant camp. The elephant guides take care of elephants, and the... More

We rode here on a scooter from Krabi - a lovely ride. Once at the park we walked to the Huai To waterfall where we had a refreshing dip in the pool - it was heaven. We then decided to go on the Dog Slide nature trail - be warned, it's a very steep and sometimes difficult walk, you need... More

We headed to this park after we had been at the Tiger Cave Temple. The park is really big and therefore you should plan in enough time for the trip. The park is very green and the staff is really friendly! We also swam in the clear water below the waterfall. Watch out for the giant yellow Spiders, sitting in... More

I booked this tour through this website: http://krabidir.com/huaythosafari/ the day before. Very efficient email contact and our guide was on time at the place we'd decided (we came from Railay East). One of my children wasn't feeling great and our guide bought very kindly an energy drink for him. We were taken safely to the National Park and we all... More

This national park was a serene place of natural beauty, we'll organised and with good facilities e.g toilets and picknick benches. The fauna and flora signposted in some places but there was no interesting sightseeing other then the 2 waterfalls which were beutiful and worth visiting

Assuming you're comfortable driving a scooter, my advice is the rent a scooter, and drive up the 40 minutes to the park yourself (stop and climb the 1200 steps of the Tiger Cave Temple on the way). After a short hike, go the the top of the waterfall where you'll find two dipping pools to refresh in lush jungle foliage.

We were initially hesitant to sign up for elephant trekking due to negative reviews on other attractions but we were glad to read good things from this site about this place. We booked a half day Elephant trekking & sight seeing at Huay Tho Waterfall via local tourist agent. It took about 45 minutes by car/jeep to arrive at the... More
