Part of this excursion is a stop to ride an elephant which the company advertises heavily. We were looking forward to it until it happened. The elephants are chained proper to arrival. Then, they are whipped to get to the area ( if they don't hurry) where you jump on top of them for the ride. The elephant in front... 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

I came here after reading reviews on here. It was so amazing and I was so relieved to see that the elephants were cared after. There are only 4 female elephants and they only walk for approx 1 hour a day, through the streams and forestry. During our walk she was allowed to stop and rest a few times and... 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

We reasearched elephant trekking as we were worried at the reports of cruelty and chose this one as it seemed the most ethical. we booked through your krabi and the response was quick. We were not dissappointed. Went to village and saw elephant bathing then just 4 elephants trekked through stream and jungle. all looked well cared for and owners... 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

A very small elephant camp with 4 elephants. In a beautiful forest. The elephant looked like they very very well taken care off. At night they are in the forest in the daytime they swim and eat and 1 hr in the afternoon they are used for trecking. The Mahuts very very nice and took lots of pictures without begging... More

We went on a half day trip to the Huay toh Waterfall and an hour elephant trekking. It was lovely and cost about 800 baht each. We thought we'd rather do it that way than pay for the taxi and go ourselves. The waterfall was lovely but we went in the height of the driest month, April so there wasn't... More
