We loved the Huay toh waterfall here but would advise anyone not to visit the elephant camp. It's really upsetting to see them all with the heavy seats on, and the mahouts constantly shouting at them. They are trained to perform and i hate to think what they do to the lovely creatures to get them to do this. They... More

We loved this place! The drive was spectacular. The mountains in Krabi are amazing!!! We climbed to the top waterfall and had a blast damming up the water with our bodies. We all stood up at once to release a giant cascade of warm water. We did the same thing at the lower falls. Swimming, splashing and having fun, this... More

Our family rented a car and drove to this national park. We did not do the elephant experience. In the water there were water bugs and some young children may not like to go in the water because the bugs. The water was very cool and on a hotter day could be refreshing. We hiked up to the third waterfall... More

We climbed only to the 3rd or 4th waterfall. I hiked further but nothing to see for quite a ways so i returned. It was not crowded at all, few people

Hi Our son and his wife organized for us to go on this elephant tour as they both know that elephants are my favourite and respected animals. We did not expect so much quality and up front and personal time with the big wonderful creatures. Our guide was very gentle and quietly spoken to the elephant at all times. I... More

Just a protected national park, original vegetation, There is a waterfall, nothing special either, the "climb" has the feeling of being "wild" but has man made steps along the road ... If you pass by or are close maybe consider it but don't plan to visit this for a day

I went to Khao Phanom Bencha National Park in December 2015. We went there with the scooter, it’s easy to find because there is a plenty of indication. Once you’re there, you’ll have to pay an entrance fee (depending on your vehicle but it’s very cheap). There is a little restaurant and a little snack, so you’ll be able to... More

We wanted to do an elephant experience while we were here and booked this trip via mykrabi.com. We wanted an experience where the elephants were treated nicely and the reviews we read about this trip said they were treated comparably well and I would agree. We booked half a day which started with an hour elephant trek. The elephants were... More
