There is not too many things to see on Koh Kuud... so an easy drive into the forest or jungle to see a huge tree is something you need to tick off on your list.

The driver told us it's 500 years old. And it is impressive and intriguing to think what the tree must have 'seen' these many years. The tree is next to the dirt road where you park... easy access.

These trees are beautiful and worth a visit. We hired bikes (as we did on all the islands - best way to get around by far), and went to visit them on the way to the Huang Nam Kaew waterfall. So it makes a nice few hours exploring if you visit both.

The trees are quite breathtaking. The roots are enormous. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Ko Kut (watch out for snakes on the floor - we came across one feasting on a lizard!!)

To get here, you're going to need your own set of wheels and preferably, some experience riding a scooter or motorcycle. The road to the trees was much worse in the past, but most of it has been developed into a two-lane gravel road. There's still a few washed out stretches where you'll need to do some maneuvering with your bike. To find it, take the main road north from the Klong Chao area (where all the restaurants and resorts are), then take the right not far after the hospital and turn right again at the fork shortly thereafter. Follow this road to the next fork, and turn right again onto the gravel road. This will take you to the trees after several kilometers. There you'll find two massive trees set back from the road less than 100 meters (there's a sign identifying them on the road). They are absolutely beautiful, especially since so many of the old growth forests on these islands have been converted to rubber plantations. You can combine a visit to the Old Trees with one to the Huang Nam Keaw waterfalls, just a few kilometers beyond the trees. A must do for anyone visiting Koh Kood.

On the way to Huang Nam Keaw waterfall, we stopped in the middle of the forest to see this big old tree which looked hundreds of years old. A very beautiful and serene place, the only sound are the leaves ruffling in the winds and birds chirping. It can be a little eerie but in a good way. The trees are a little difficult to locate but if you go with a local, he will surely take you. One clue of locating it is – look for the signboard which shows the way of Huang Nam Keaw Waterfall – the path to reach the tree is just beside.

Just to co clarify a few things. This tree is a tamarind tree - in Thai it is called Makham Yak, which is also what is written on road signs leading to the tree. Makham is tamarind and yak is a Thai mythical creature similar to a giant troll.
Although it may sound romantic, it is not true that Koh Kood is covered by ancient jungle. Most of the island is covered by (old) rubber trees and plans are under development for these trees to be cut down (and replaced with new, higher-yielding trees) and transported to the mainland for conversion to para-wood lumber for export to China. .

Along the way to Huang Nam Keaw Waterfall, a 500 yrs old tree is standing surrounded by the forest. The size is really astonishing, and the number and size of emerging roots amazing. Nice place to stay, a better cleaning of the area would improve the overall look.

If you are going already to Nam Keaw it is nice to visit trees, but you will not spend more than 30 min for both of them

Both trees are down a dirt track surround by jungle. It was a great ride on a scooter.... Albeit nerve wrecking for a novice. The impression from the map and little English info on it was that they were old trees. When we arrived we saw that they were also religious sites of some significance. Alters, offerings, clothes and trinkets, messages and photos were surrounding the trees. It would have been nice to know more about that element too. Would recommend taking a look, the ride there is fun and pretty (butterflies are amazing) and the trees are very interesting with all the religious artifacts.

We visited the old tree as part of a morning tour of Koh Kut and we were luckily the only visitors at the time. Our guide firstly said a small prayer to the spirit who lived within the tree and we then spent ten minutes wandering around the base with its huge roots and various types of offerings which had been placed amongst the branches, including a set of male and female clothes.
Worth a stop.
