ITINERARY: This pure action day gives you a great taste of Thailand’s lush interior. Travel overland to Phang Nga (around 1.5 hours) to the rafting base camp on the Songpak River, where you will receive full instruction and don safety equipment for the course. If you just wish to ride, but not paddle, this is also possible.
Then it’s time to set off for an exhilarating run through the rapids. The 5km course takes around 45 minutes to complete.
After lunch, at a plantation restaurant, move on to the ATV camp to take a genuine off-road trek of 1 hour, on a 200cc ATV. The course goes along a shallow river and through the jungle on dirt tracks. Note that the ATV timing includes a 10 – 15 minute training and safety session with an instructor before the trek starts. Return to Krabi by minivan, via the Monkey Cave temple, Wat Suwanna Kuha, near Phang Nga.
A 20 THB entry fee is charged for those who wish to go inside the cave (it is not compulsory). This charge is not included in the tour cost as it is considered as a donation to the temple that will “make merit” for the donor.
Expected group size: 4 – 14 pax, depending on the day and time of year.
Important: ATV and rafting can be done by children as young as 6 (though we recommend a minimum age of 7 – 8 to be safe). Parents must assume full responsibility for their children. Children under the age of 12 may ride ATVs as passengers only. Children 12 – 16 years may drive if accompanied by an adult passenger.
No prior experience is required for either the rafting, or the ATV.
Travel time from Krabi to the rafting site in Phang Nga is around 1.5 hours each way by a/c minivan.
