Spend the day at leisure. Either relax at the hotel, head out for some independent exploration, or join an optional tour.
Option 1: Full Day Hard Trek
Start early in the morning for a full day of hard trekking at Phenombencha National Park. This 50-sq-km park protects a dramatic area of virgin rainforest along the spine of 1350m-high Khao Phanombencha, just 20km north of Krabi. The name means Five-Point Prostration Mountain, a reference to the mountain’s profile, which resembles a person prostrating in prayer, with hands, knees and head touching the ground. The park is full of scenic waterfalls,including the 11-tiered Nam Tok Huay To. Close by, and almost as dramatic, are Nam Tok Huay Sadeh and NamTok Khlong Haeng. Many years ago this was home to clouded leopards, black panthers, Asiatic black bears,barking deer, serow, and tigers. Now, much of this wildlife has moved deeper into the forest interior. With a hike to this hidden world, and a bit of luck, it’s possible to see rare exotic species such as Malayan tapirs, leaf monkeys,gibbons and various tropical birds – including the helmeted hornbill, and extremely rare Gurney’s pitta. This 5-7hours trek requires a reasonable level of fitness and agility. The trek follows the river to a cave entrance and climbs quickly into the jungle via rubber tree plantations, spectaculars fauna, and floras.
Option 2: Half Day Trek
Also known as Ngorn Nak Mountain. This is a strenuous hike, but can be completed by most people with a reasonable level of fitness. There are a couple steep parts but, overall it’s a gradual climb up a well-worn dirt path.The hike easily ranks as one of Krabi’s top 10 things to do. It’s a 3.7km walk up to the summit of Ngorn Nak. Along the way, encounter stunning scenes of nature, with limestone cliffs and abundant animals such as lizards, gibbons,birds and butterflies. After reaching the summit, enjoy stunning 360-degree views over Krabi, Phang Nga Bay, theHong Islands and, on a clear day, even the Phi Phi Islands. (Trekking time is about 3-4 hours)
Return to the resort for an evening to relax before a full-day rock climbing adventure tomorrow.
