Caves & Jungle Pools

Caves & Jungle Pools – explore the hidden Krabi!

There are some beautiful swimming holes to be found in the jungles around Krabi Province. The most famous is the Emerald Pool about 40km south of Krabi. There is an entry fee but its well worth a visit. The famous hot springs are also nearby and can be visited in the same day.

To the north of Krabi near Thalen is Klong Song Nam which translates as “Two Water Canal”. It gets it’s name from the crystal clear water that mixes with the saline estuary as it empties into the Phang Nga Bay. Again there is a fee to enter the area but it’s well worth a visit. Swimming in the Klong is prohibited except for the large pool near the entrance.

A new attraction that many people are talking about is Hollow Mountain. It’s on the road from Krabi Town to Ao Nang. A large cave system that has been roped and laddered allowing the intrepid to explore and adventure. The rope swing looks amazing though not for the feint hearted. check out their website for more info….. https://hollowmtn.com

At Phra Nang Beach there are two caves at either end of the beach. The north end of the beach is where the entrance to the enormous Princess Cave is. Bring old clothes and flashlights as it’s dark and filthy inside. Look for the passage at the back of the cave that leads through the mountain to an amazing view point from a window looking over Railey and Tonsai Beaches.

For more caves and swimming holes – visit Laem Sak to the North of Krabi Town. This little known seaside village has some of Thailand’s best preserved rock art and many of the places are well off the beaten track so some perseverance will be needed.
