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

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
