Booked through an agency the jungle trek to climb Khao Salak Pet including waterfalls and pools. Long day leading by the guide including water and lunch, all for 1250 Baht. Very expensive relatively! The path presented started at a point and after a round path ended at the same place. The guy picked us 40 minutes late drove us to a different starting point and told us to take a take-away lunch box with 2 small bottles of water. 7 people in the group, he pointed to an old thai man and said this is your guide and disappeared to work with another group for another trek. Since then, we were leaded by a guy who doesn’t speak a word in english for the entire trek. He walked fast without any responsibility for the group following him. By the time we finished the climb we were almost out of water. After the nice over look we returned at the exact same path and towards the 2/3 of the way back he detoured to a dried river for a very poor pool and signed to us that this is the place to swim. By this time we were all almost dehydrated waiting for this night mare to end. When we arrived back to the starting point we waited more than 45 minutes to be picked up by the “real” guide. When I tried to talk to him expressing my disappointment from this day he ignored me by not even looking at me. The man is a crook. Nothing from what was promised actually happened, the fact that the guide did not speak a word in english could have been a disaster in case of an emergency to one of the group needs special medical treatment due to dehydration. The fact that only 2 small water bottles were provided was crucial. This whole package presented to us at the agency was big fake and almost nothing was true. Luckily ended up without any injury otherwise it could have been a disaster. This guy Mr. Raht is danger because he has no thinking what could be the circumstances of his un responsible behavior when conducting such tours. Stay away from this guy!!! He cares only about money and without putting the right attention he is endangering people’s life. Was so frustrating to pay 1250 Baht for a 60 Baht worth lunch box.

I confirm what the other reviewers stated about the Friday tour up the Salak Phet mountain. It is demanding and should only be done by people who are fit, and better yet, know what it means to hike/climb mountains and have appropriate shoes and clothes. So don't complain that this is rough - this is the jungle, which means if you want it comfortable, stay away and get yourself a foot massage, after all this is not disneyland. Maybe you see animals, maybe you don't - this is just the way it is. You never know what to expect. Mr. Raht does a great job leading thru the forest, and even getting along with all those tourists, quite a few of which are behaving like entltled spoiled children - like they have a right to anything. They should just stfu.

Raht brought us on his easier hike from near Kae Bae up to 280m high visiting jungle and waterfall 8km loop. Great fun. Decent pace on steep hillsides and lots and lots of climbing over and under fallen trees so tough workout. All part of the fun though! We climbed lianas and saw lots of plants. It rained heavily the night before our hike and the day was overcast which made temperatures pleasant for us.

We were hoping to see or to learn about the animals and plantlife in the jungle. But we hardly saw any animals or got any new information from the guide. The guide spoke poor english and did not understand the questions we asked and did not seem intrested to communicate. The group was rediculously overcrowded (25 people on one guide) some guys got lost one time. We had to wait 1 hour before the tour and 1 hour after the tour beside the road for him to collect everyone in his truck. If you just want an exercise and want to take profilepictures for your facebook this tour might work( but I doubt it). If you want to see and learn about the wildlife in the jungles of Koh Chang this is not the tour for you!

Did this trek in mid-May and did not enjoy it. The heat and humidity were oppressive and made the trek incredibly uncomfortable (I realize that I can't blame the tour / guide for this, but it's worth considering if you are thinking of signing up at the same time of year). There was very little to see - zero wildlife (unless you count leeches) and one pretty underwhelming waterfall. Also - and maybe it was a language barrier thing - I found the guide pretty rude and abrupt and not at all engaging or encouraging. Overall, I thought it was a long and boring day and just not worth the effort. If you do decide to give this a go, here are some suggestions: - Make sure to pack plenty of water. Although the promotional materials for the trek indicate that water is included, all you get is one pretty small bottle of water at the very outset. This is definitely not enough as you will be hiking in hot and humid conditions for about 5 or 6 hours. There is nowhere on the trail to get extra water supplies once you run out - which I unfortunately learned the hard way - so do yourself a favor and pack a couple of extra liters! - You should also make sure to wear decent shoes as there are a number of steep (and slippery) climbs on the trail. Ideally hiking shoes if you have them, but I wore trainers and they worked just fine. Make sure that your shoes are fully covered (not sandals) to give you some protection from the leeches (there are a LOT). I also sprayed my shoes and clothes with permethrin in advance and I was one of the few people in the group that did not get suckered by a leech, so you might want to try that if you have it with you. - Also bring your own mosquito repellent. Again, the promotional materials say that repellent is included, but all they give you is tiger balm. There are a LOT of mosquitos in the jungle so you are definitely going to want to use deet. - Lastly, it's worth noting that the included lunch is some variation of chicken and rice. So if you don't eat meat (like me!), you should plan to bring your own packed lunch or else maybe try contacting the guide in advance to make arrangements for a vegetarian meal (unless of course you like plain white rice!) Some other reviewers have also suggested bringing your own snacks. This is totally up to you, but we did get lots of fruit throughout the trek (freshly plucked from the jungle!), such as grapefruits and durians, as well a small chocolate snack at the waterfall. That was plenty for me, even after a hearty lunch of plain white rice (!)
