After pick-up in the morning from your hotel ( included for the major beaches of Phuket), you will be transferred to the entrance of the Khao Phra Teaw national Park in the heart of Phuket. You receive a thorough briefing from our guide before starting the trekking around 09:00 am. The almost 7 km hike starts on the steep and rocky trail along scenic Tonsai waterfall before flattening out on a plateau near one of the highest hills of Phuket. Admire oversized tree and plant life, towering bamboo corridors and palms with gigantic leaves. Our guide is constantly on the lookout to spot wildlife. The national park harbors a variety of wildlife, including wild boar, flying lemur, langur and gibbons, all well hiding in the evergreen walls of dense vegetation along the trail. Enjoy a plunge in a lovely natural pool before starting the descent on the steep slopes down to Phuket's biggest waterfall, Bang Pae, where you cool down with a refreshing jungle shower. Learn about the reintroduction of gibbons at the Gibbon Rehabilitation Center. Refuel with delicious Thai food at a local restaurant.
I have done the tour with Andaman Nature Tours (Feel Phuket) and it was a formidable experience. We were in a small group and we had an excellent guide who knows the jungle like the back if his pants. Don't expect big animals because the...More

Hi Emmanuel, thank you very much for your 5*review and for joining us hiking in Phuket's rainforest. There is indeed a great wildlife variety in the Khao Phra Taew national park. Thanks also for mentioning that there is more to Phuket than beautiful beaches.
The later stages were physically quite tough on the knees but an enjoyable day out in the rainforest, with an expert and fun guide. Highly recommended.

Hi Kartinah and Adam, thank you very much for your 5* review of our rainforest hike in the Khao Phra Taew national park. The last part is indeed a bit tougher, but also rewarding by finishing right at gorgeous Bang Pae waterfall.
We had a wonderful time trekking through the jungle. We were greeted and given a thorough briefing upon arrival and very well taken care of from the moment we arrived. We saw frogs, crabs (yes crabs in the jungle!), turtle, fish, snakes, all sorts of...More

Hi Nick, participants vary, we have the runners, but mostly people with an average fitness level who love the tropical rainforest. Our oldest participants was a fit 72-year old man. The total distance is 8km these days, a bit longer as we have to get around a few fallen trees. The first part is rocky and goes sometimes steep up, the last part steep down, but the trail is very dry in these period, which makes it easier then in the rainy season. Good shoes, like sports shoes, are important. The pace is not fast and our guide makes regular stops.
Please advise if you need more information. Have a nice day, Joris
