We did a lot of research before we chose this one as we refuse to pay for cruelty. What a very beautiful place to ride and wash elephants. There is a free local pickup which takes you to the nature reserve and the villagers own the elephants they treat them like one of the family. You can feel the elephants... More

Access to safari is a bit tough if you are travelling by yourself. Equip yourself with a GPS to guide you. Entrance fee is 100 bath only! Climb to waterfall is not so tiring. Atmosphere is rather cooling even in the afternoon.

We rented scooters for 200 Bhat from Ao Nang and drove the 40km to the national park, only took one wrong turn on the way :). We used google maps screen shots to find our way, OK if you are good at map reading as the road signs can be confusing. The park costs 100 to get in and 20... More

Like others on this post, we too booked our trip via Huai To Safari. Our tour guide, Jeruen had very good English and provided a great insight into the places we visited. We were collected from our hotel at 8am by the guide and a driver and picked up a few others enroute. By 10am we were at our first... More

Our visit to this park was a part of our cycling tour. We walked to the waterfall and back, that was nice walk. There was no crowds there. I understand, there are longer walks there, but this little walk can be part of the day trip in combination with something else. Very well maintained, peacefull

We had a great day at the waterfall and elephant trek. Best of all: my camera case fell out of my pocket during the trek but they went to the trouble of finding it from somewhere in the jungle along the path and returning it to my hotel! Many thanks for the excellent customer service :-)

This was a spur of the moment visit for us. We rented a scooter from a local shop and toured around Krabi. A local said this was a beautiful place to visit, which he was spot on correct about! The drive to the park is fabulous, you go through a few road side villages untouched by tourism, a great way... More

We rode by Scooter from Ao Nang to the park but the round trip is in excess of 100 kms so it is a long ride on a small bike. Sections of the road are in need of maintenance and are a bit bumpy so rather take a taxi if you are not an experienced motor bike rider. It is... More

We visited the Khao Phanom Bencha Park for the Elephant Safari and the Waterfall ride. The Waterfall isnt the greatest attraction to be honest and isnt one of the largest Waterfall. However, for someone visiting the park, I would not mind recommending it as a short trip to experience nature. We were told there is some wildlife (monkeys etc) higher... More

We were looking to ride elephants but only in a place that they are treated well. Huay two is such a place - they have 4-5 elephants. each elephant belongs to one of the families in the village, they dont do more then 4 trips a day (about 1hr each) and it seems that they are treated very well.
