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. The... More

We visited during low season so perhaps the rain and wet slippery ground made things more difficult, but still I recommend you be quite fit and coordinated to do the full loop to the top of the waterfall and down the other side. Some parts of the path a very steep and narrow, and some parts I wouldn't really call... More

I am so absolutely disappointed and upset by what just happened to this trip-- I'm upset with Your Krabi touring company and the elephant camp. My husband and I were looking very forward to this elephant trekking and bathing, and booked this part of our trip over one month in advance -- our decision to stay in Krabi for one... More

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
