Hot Springs, Emerald Pool + Kayaking in Ao Thalane

1,000 ฿1,700 ฿



  • AVAILABILITY: Daily, all year round, except 13 – 14 April
  • APPROXIMATE TIMING: 09.00 – 17.30
  • ITINERARY: This geography defying full day (the sites are located at the opposite ends of Krabi province) will allow you to combine two great inland adventures. In the morning, you will visit both the Hot Springs and Emerald (Crystal) Pool sites, located around 50 minutes from Ao Nang.

    On arrival, take one of the short trails (800m or 1.2km) to the spring-water filled Emerald Pool, swim and explore the surrounding forest. You’ll also have the opportunity to bathe in the mineral rich waters of the Klong Thom Hot Springs (water temperature 30 – 40C), located nearby. Spend around 45 mins – 1 hour in each place.

    Heading back towards the coast, you will stop off for lunch at a pretty lakeside restaurant, before setting off again for Thalane cape. From the pier here, you will take a kayak out for some great paddling around the canyons of Ao Thalane. Explore the mangrove ecosystem at your own pace with your guide.

    Note that the order of events may be changed depending on the tides. Note also that there is a lot of time spent on the road during this trip, due to the distance covered between the sites.

    Expected group size: 6 – 12 pax, depending on the day and time of year.

    Important: This is a guided, self paddling excursion, i.e. you are accompanied, but must do the paddling yourself. Kayaks are available as 2 or 3 seaters.
