We booked a half day four-in-one trip with Elephant trekking/bathing/play & sightseeing at Huay Tho Waterfall through the hotel travel desk. It took about 40 minutes to reach from our hotel at Ao-Nang to the national park. The tour started with visit to ‘Huay Tho...More
My husband and I love going for hikes around the Krabi area and we thought this would be perfect. We hiked to the waterfall which was beautiful then told by a park ranger we couldn’t keep going up the trail to the top of the...More
My daughter-in-law made arrangements for our family to visit this park. We were picked up at our hotel and driven in the back of a covered pickup truck (See photo) to the location. It was an oasis away from the hussel and bussel of things...More
Went for 40 min elephant trekking with my family and I feel I have wasted money. Riding elephant was good but there is nothing to see when you trek. Simply sitting on elephant for 40 min is no fun.
Mahout were not engaging at all...More
We started the day heading to the hot springs in Krabi and ended up getting lost and ending up here. JUST WOW!!!! what a result this was, even thought it took ages from Ao Nang through storms and rough road on a pedda. This was...More
I wished we did a bit more research when we booked the half-day tour to the Tiger Cave Temple which came with the “Elephant Trekking” activity.
It was the saddest experience ever. We were brought to the Khao Panombenja Jungle where many elephants were made...More
Today we went on what was supposed to be an elephant trekking, bathing and feeding trip. We thought we would get to see elephants in a natural habitat. What we got was the biggest disappointment during our trip in Thailad. When we arrived, we couldn't...More
We drove from Krabi town. It is an easy drive on a good road and hard to get lost. The entrance fee (farrang, adult) was a modest 100 Baht. We walked up to Huai To Waterfall. That is a quite easy walk to the base...More
Visit Khao Phanom Bencha National Park on our own? (8 Replies)
Hi guys, is it doable to go to Khao Phanom Bencha National Park on our own without joining those travel agents' day tour? My girl friend and I will be staying at a hometel near Nopparat Thara Beach, any transportation available from Ao Nang to this National Park and how much does it cost? And how long you would suggest to stay and trek over there? Should we have our lunch over there? Cheers. =)

Hiking in the Krabi area? (4 Replies)
We love to hike and will have few days in Krabi area. Somewhere I came across a comment about Khao Phanom Bencha National Park. We would like to hike to the top of the peak Khao Phanom Bencha. Would you know if we need to have a guide or can we hike by ourselves? Any details on the trek? If you have any information about this hike you would like to share I would really appreciate it.

There are maps and reasonably clearly marked (sometimes steep) treks - 'not sure if any of them actually go to the peak. Most people go to the waterfall and the caves, that's far enough in the heat! 'Don't know how you'd get a guide, 'never seen any. The park rangers know that you are in the park and go looking or you if you disappear though...
