The waterfall, located quite near to the Emerald pool, is in a shady forest area with numerous hot springs. The hot springs and cool streams converge on a slope to form lovely cascades of warm water with a temperature of 40-50 degrees Celsius.
The best time to visit is from 7.00 a.m. to 8.00 a.m. and from 4.00 p.m. to 5.00 p.m.
To reach the waterfall visitors should travel 45 kilometers from town to Amphoe Khlong Thom, then take Sukhaphiban 2 Road for another 12 kilometers. The admission fee is 10 baht per person.
Because of its stunning beauty, the earthly paradise of Phi Phi Le is almost too beautiful to be true. However Phi Phi Le is 100% authentic beauty abundant with rare flora and fauna as well as the world famous Maya Bay. Grand limestone mountains embrace the white sandy beach and the entire bay, and the impressive Ao Maya shows no sign of human interference despite a large number of tourists that swarm in all day long on a daily basis.
In the early morning, one can expect a scene of halcyon seas, white sandy beaches totally devoid of people and rare beach plants like beach morning glory and beautiful seashore screw pine. At Ao Maya, rare hornbills can be spotted to complete the perfect picture of the beach’s ecosystem.
The other two tranquil beaches on Koh Phi Phi are within a walking distance to Maya Bay. One is Ao Lo Sama-a small bay with shallow coral reefs and colorful fish. The other bay is Pi Le which is a giant lagoon surrounded by mountains. A dive site along the limestone cliff wall called “Pi Le Wall” is also nearby where one can dive in to admire the beauty of giant sea fans that can be seen in shallow water.
Koh Phi Phi Don is the largest of the Phi Phi Islands, in Thailand. The islands are administratively part of Krabi province. It is the only island in the group with permanent inhabitants.
Like the other islands in the group, Koh Phi Phi Don is a non-volcanic island largely made of limestone. It is almost separated into two islands, but a strand of flat land connects them. On this strand lies the largest town on the island, as well as most of the resorts.
Koh Phi Phi Don is now squarely on the tourist map, and tourists from all over the world (especially Europe, Japan, and the wealthier Southeast Asian countries i.e. Chinese, Singapore and Malaysia) flock to the island. Accessible from Phuket and mainland Krabi province, all tourists must arrive by Ferry. (The trip from Phuket takes around 90 minutes.) This has essentially turned the island into a rush of day trippers who overpopulate the island from 11AM-3PM. The island still holds much charm that can be enjoyed in the hours that the flocks from Phuket are not there. While in former times, Ko Phi Phi Don was a serene paradise, parts of it (especially the Ton Sai Bay area) have been exploited for tourism. Restaurants, shops, internet cafes, and shanty towns abound.
Khao Phanom Bencha National Park Covering a total area of 31,325 rai, including parts of Amphoe Mueang, Amphoe Ao Luek, and Amphoe Khao Phanom, Khao Phanom Bencha National Park is Krabi’s only on land National Park.
It offers pristine, lush forest with mountain ranges running north to south. Khao Phanom Bencha, the highest elevation of Krabi, stands at 1,397 metres above sea level. Its marvellous scenery is enhanced by streams, waterfalls, caves, and wild animals such as Asian tapir, Sumatran serow, Asiatic black bear, and Fishing cat.
In addition to this, it boasts more than 218 species of birds such as eagles, hornbills, and woodpeckers.
Regarded as the symbol of Krabi, Khao Khanap Nam are two mountains that are roughly 100 meters tall sit on both banks of Maenam Krabi River at the entrance to Krabi City. Prepare to be mesmerized by its amazing caves, adorned with stalactites and stalagmites.
In addition to natural attractions, a large number of human skeletons have been found here and, as theory has it, there were people settling down in the area but were unfortunately cut off by a flood and finally vanished.
For further trekking to Khao Khanap Nam, mangrove forests and Klang island, a fisherman village, a boat is available for rent 300 THB per trip.
