ITINERARY: This tour takes you to one of the most interesting areas of Krabi, wonderfully scenic, and rich in history and culture. Travel overland (40 – 50 mins) to the pier at Bor Tor and then transfer to your kayak (2 / 3 seater).
You will set off, along the backwaters, passing local fishermen, to reach the vast cavern of Pee Hua Toh, which has provided shelter to humans for thousands of years (and has cave paintings to prove it). Take pictures at the magnificent lookout point near the top of the cave. Continue paddling to Tham Lod, a “secret passage” through a rock tunnel dotted with stalactites, before returning to the pier for lunch. Total kayaking time, around 1.5 hours (not including stops).
After lunch, which will consist of Thai food served family style, stop off for a refreshing swim in a secluded, natural forest pool. Round off the afternoon with an hour’s elephant trek through rubber plantations and along a cliffside stream at Nosey Parker Elephant Camp, or at a small camp in Chong Phli village. If you have any preference, please indicate this in your order notes at checkout.
Paddle guides are also available as an add-on service for this tour; they can take maximum one passenger each, so please book one per person requiring the service.
Note that although it is easier if all passengers on the kayak paddle, only one person actually needs to paddle, so children or less fit people can sit as passengers with an able adult and in this case no paddle guide will be required. Kayaks are available as 2 or 3 seaters.
Expected group size: 6 – 14 pax, depending on the day and time of year.
