4 Amazing Hiking Trails You Must Visit in Krabi

Krabi is a province in the southwestern region of Thailand. It’s one of the most famous locations in the country thanks to its beautiful shorelines, crystal clear waters, along with the abundance of fresh seafood and aquatic activities. One thing that not many people may think of when they talk about Krabi is the hiking trails. The landscape of the province is mountainous and glittered with lush rainforest that hides many amazing locations that you shouldn’t miss.


With that said, here are four hiking trails in Krabi you should include in your travel plan:


Hang Nak Mountain (Dragon Crest Trail)

The Hang Nak Mountain is an ancient mountain range with a rainforest that is among one of the oldest in the world. At the top of the mountain, you can see the complete view of all the main beaches in Krabi, along with the valley to the east, which makes for a scenic trail. The trek isn’t even that long, as it’s only about four kilometers walk from the bottom to the top. This will take you around the waterfalls, streams, and many other interesting sites along the trail. If you’re lucky, you may spot some wildlife such as deer, monkeys, or even elephants. It’s a place where you can genuinely get in touch with the preserved natural wonders of Thailand. Make sure you bring plenty of water, as the humid environment will make you dehydrated.


Bang Kram Wildlife Sanctuary

Bang Kram Wildlife Sanctuary is a lowland forest, which is a considerably rare environment in an area filled with hills and mountain ranges. This difference in the biome from the other forested areas make Bang Kram a unique site, both in terms of the landscape, the wildlife species, and the plant life in the area. This is the perfect location for bird watchers, as it’s the prime location to spot rare bird species. This includes Gurney’s Pitta, which is thought by many to be extinct but a small population was recently discovered in Bang Kram. There are many small water pools around the area that will make you want to take a dip in. The emerald pool is one of the most popular pools in the area. Its crystal clear and bright green water is slightly warm, making it ideal for swimming after a long day’s hike. The water in the pool also reflects the sunlight, making it appear to change color as the day progresses.


Hot Springs Krabi

If you haven’t had enough of pool swimming, then you will want to walk slightly further along the forest trail of Bang Kram where you will find the Hot Spring Park. This is a fantastic location for those who are looking for a getaway. You will get to sit back and relax in a natural spa that will help to treat some soreness and joint pains. You can make this the end part of your trip, as it’s a perfect way to end a day full of adventures.


The entrance fee to the park is 200 baht, which includes access to all the facilities and amenities provided.


Khao Phanom Bencha National Park Waterfall

The Phanom Bencha Mountain is a popular location for those who love nature tours, as there are many unique sites and landscape. The waterfall is located in the mountains of the same name; 1,350 above sea level, it is the tallest point in Krabi. This makes it a stunning viewpoint, as you can see all the surrounding forested areas to your heart’s content. Once you’re done with that, you can take a dip into one of the many waterfall pools in the Phanom Bencha mountain. One of the sites you must visit is the Huay Toh waterfall, which is a 300-meter-tall cascading fall with 11 tiers.
