Krabi: Private Trip to Tiger Cave Temple & Waterfall

1. Krabi: Private Trip to Tiger Cave Temple & Waterfall

Visit 3 main attractions of the Krabi jungle on this private day trip. You can visit Wat Tahm Suea (the Tiger Cave Temple), Sra Morakot (the Emerald Pool), and the natural hot spring. Firstly, you can explore the Tiger Cave Temple, aptly named because of the rock outgrowth nearby resembling a tiger’s claw. The temple is known as a meditation center and its spectacular setting in the Ao Luk Thanu mountain range provides the necessary quiet atmosphere perfect for meditation. Venture 1,200 steps to the hill top for the view of Krabi and its limestone rock formations. Discover and swim in the Emerald Pool/Crystal Lagoon, a freshwater pool inside the Khao Phra Bang Khram Nature Reserve. The waters of this 120-square-meter pond take on a green hue, thanks to an abundance of minerals from the surrounding limestone hills. On the final stage of your tour, you will visit the Krabi Hot Spring, located in the jungle 40 kilometers south of Krabi Town within the Klong Thom Waterfall. Though the waterfall itself is just a cascade tumbling gently all but a few meters, it is unique in that the spring water that feeds it bubbles up from the earth at temperature of more than 50 degrees celsius. It cools a bit as it flows to the cascade and you can swim in the calm stream below for a much cooler bath. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be returned to your Krabi accommodation.

Have a break for lunch at a local restaurant and then take some time to relax at the Hot Springs Waterfall. Soak in the soothing feeling of the warm water as it swirls around you.

Krabi: Early Jungle Tour to Krabi Hot Springs & Crystal Pool

3. Krabi: Early Jungle Tour to Krabi Hot Springs & Crystal Pool

Your experience begins are you are collected from your accommodation at sunrise before traveling in air-conditioned comfort to Klong Thom in the south of the Krabi province. Make a short stop in a 100-year-old wooden house to enjoy a homemade breakfast lovingly prepared by local people, before continuing to the Krabi Hot Spring in the south of Krabi through rural villages and breathtaking scenery. Once there, relax in hot-tub jacuzzis formed by nature, known locally as "nam tok rawn". The water there comes from thermal springs, originating deep underground in volcanic chambers. Located in the jungle, this site features naturally hollowed-out "bathtubs" in smooth stone, filled to the brim with fresh running spring water at a pleasant 35-42° Celsius. A visit to the hot springs would not be complete without a trip to the nearby crystal pool, known as Sa Morakot in Thai. It is a large natural pool is filled with pure spring water which is ideal to take a refreshing swim in. Along the way to the pool, pass by a series of clear mini-pools, waterfalls, and streams, as well as hundreds of species of tropical trees, plants, and birds. Next up, visit the Tiger Cave Temple, or "Wat Tham Seua" in Thai. The temple is set inland in a beautiful forest and is in fact a famous meditation center for monks and nuns who come from all over Thailand to retreat there. The temple is laid out as a small village with a main boulevard lined with monkeys with a large statue of Guan Im at the end. From there you are free to walk around the nature trail through the Khiriwong Valley or double back to visit the main Tiger Cave and bell tower (the largest in Southern Thailand). For those who are fit enough, a 1,237-stair climb leads to the famous mountain-top shrine for a view that will take away what little breath you have left. Before returning to your hotel, make a short stop at the famous "Black Crab" monument in Krabi Town with a stunning view of the Khao Khanab Nam twin mountains. These majestic natural wonders act as the gateway to Krabi City with the river running between the two limestone cliffs forming a widely photographed spot.

What people are saying about Emerald Pool

The trip was well planned and well executed. We were picked up at the airport on time and the driver took us to all the spots one by one, leaving plenty of time to enjoy each spot. I was amazed as to how much care and consideration was taken into small details, so that we travellers feel comfortable. Overall it was a wonderful trip. A heartfelt 'Thank you' to the GYG team.

Was good but you only pay to be dropped off at different places just aswell get a taxi, make sure you have trainers with you you’ll need them!
