Since we had just had 2 full days on the island we decided to do the half day trek to klong plu waterfall. Upon arrival we noted that we were a group of 10 (!) people. Most of the people in the group looked like they never saw a gym in their life let alone did a challenging hike in hot and humid jungle weather. The tempo of the group was therefore very slow. We had to stop often to let people catch their breath and clearly they were also not having a good time. Apart from this, the trek itself was really nice. Adventurous and challenging. Reaching the waterfall and swimming there was a great reward at the end of the (just 100m) climb, so if you go bring your swimsuit (or even better wear it under your clothes so you can jump in immediately). The reason for two stars is supported by the following arguments: - this hike is described as ‘fairly easy’ which I understand compared to the other full day treks, but the thing is, IT’S NOT EASY. Anyone who does hiking in f.e. The alps, would agree that this walk would be classified as ‘difficult’ due to the terrain alone. If you add the fact that you go uphill and the combination with humid and hot weather makes this a trek that requires some fitness. We went in the dry season, and I can imagine it’s even worse in rainy season plus more mosquitos and snakes. So don’t mislead people by making them think it’s easy like a stroll in the park because they will be utterly disappointed and not enjoying their day, plus run health risks (weak heart, pregnant etc? —> Don’t go on this hike). Now, it turned out we had to stop every 5-10 minutes which made the hike take longer than necessary and was very tedious for the people that actually wanted to hike. This now felt like city centre shopping on the day before christmas. - there is no information provided on proper attire. People in our group where walking with shorts, unprotected from ticks and sharp low branches and plants, and wore no-grip sneakers giving no support at all. Please advise people to wear long trousers and proper shoes that have some grip on the terrain! If you get bitten, or you fall and break or twist something, remember this is Thailand and there is no rescue team stand-by to come and collect you from the mountain. - our guide was friendly and considerate but his english was very poor. Therefore we did not receive decent info on the flora/fauna which would have been an excellent way to spend all the stops we had to make for the weaker people in the group to catch their breath. Also, it would have been wise to bring some ORS or elektrolyte drink to give to people that were clearly struggling. Luckily some other guys in the group could provide for it but it should have come from the guide. - at the end of the trek, the driver was waiting for us and we placed in the car and drove off. No opportunity to say goodbye to fellow trekkers or the guide. No one asked how our experience was. It felt as if they had to get rid of us asap.
