Before we went to this attraction I was a bit sceptical as i read so many negative reviews. But having nothing much to do on that day we decided to take the trip... and I'm so glad that we did! We went for a half day Elephant trekking & sight seeing at Huay Tho Waterfall. It is a 40 minutes... More

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

We took a private taxi from our hotel in Nong Thaley (near AO Nang), it cost 2000 Bhat for 3 of us, but it was money well spent. The first path we took was to the view point which is not advisable in flip flops as you are climbing a steep track through the jungle. Give it a miss if... More

After doing extensive research on the elephant camps in Krabi, I chose to book a half day elephant trek and bathing tour through yourkrabi.com. I emailed Seema some questions and she was very prompt in her responses and highly recommending the program. The tour operator they use for elephant treks is Huay Tho Waterfall Safari and I can only speak... More

After researching waterfalls in Krabi we came across Huay Toh. Most tours try to take you to local hot springs so to get here we booked a private taxi, combined with a trip to tiger temple. It took half a day and was 1,700B as was just two of us and he waited while we explored. When we got there... More

It cost us 1000baht to get here in a taxi that waited for us there, but it was worth every cent. This national park is huge, beautiful and we didn't come across a single person on any of the trails we did. We loved the 3 tiered and 11 tiered waterfall, plus the viewpoint is worth the climb despite its... More

It was a great park to explore, when I was there it was flooded so the water was muddy and some of the paths were flooded. Allot of mosquitoes so bring spray!!

This national park is stunning. There is a whole array of wildlife to see and the park itself is huge so there is plenty of walking that can be done. The organisers said to bring towels and swim shorts etc but you cant really go swimming in the waterfalls but, you can paddle in them. Naturally, there are bugs everywhere....and... More
