Krabi Nature and Culture Tour

1,200 ฿1,650 ฿

This tour is temporarily unavailable from 9 – 16 January due to the road to the elephant camp being inaccessible.



  • AVAILABILITY: Mon, Wed and Fri, all year round, except 1 Jan, 13 – 15 April
  • APPROXIMATE TIMING: 09.00 – 17.00
  • ITINERARY: For those looking for something a bit different, this tour will let you explore the best of Krabi’s natural, cultural and historical attractions, and gain a real insight into the way of life here.

    Leave the beach and other tourists behind as you travel inland to a small elephant trekking camp in the borders of the national park at Phanom Bencha and take a ride through the forest, following the river. Continue on foot into the National Park grounds to visit the seven level Huay Tho waterfall (4 levels easily accessible). Bathing is possible, and the water – which flows from Krabi’s highest peak – is very refreshing.

    Following lunch in a local riverside restaurant, visit the Tiger Cave Temple. You can explore an area of ancient forest and caves where the monks go to meditate, as well as trek up to the mountain top shrine for some breathtaking views. Then it is time to head into Krabi Town, the provincial capital.

    From the pier here, you will take a short cruise by longtail boat along the Krabi River backwaters, passing traditional Muslim fishing villages and endangered mangrove forest. There’s a stop at the landmark Khao Kanab Nam caves, which have been used as shelter since prehistoric times – most recently to Japanese soldiers in World War II. Finish off the day with a visit to a local fruit market in town.

    Note: the order of events above is subject to change if more than one group is booked on the same day.

    Expected group size: 4 – 10 pax, depending on the day and time of year.
