What you can expect

Enjoy an 6-hour excursion to the 4 Islands just off the coast from Ao Nang. During the trip you will make 7 stops at Phra Nang Cave Beach, Koh Tan Ming, Koh Si, Tup Islets, Chicken Island, Poda Island and a plankton stop near Railay.

Following a pick-up in the early afternoon from locations in Krabi, Ao Nang, and Railay Beach, this tour to the 4 Islands area offers a similar itinerary to the morning departure, but with the opportunity to watch a spectacular sunset out at sea, and the chance of swimming and snorkeling with luminescent plankton.

The first stop is Phra Nang Cave Beach on the southernmost tip of the Railay peninsula. You can visit the famous “Phallus Shrine” in a cave which is famous for its wonderful stalactites and stalagmites. Since ancient times, Phra Nang (Princess) Cave has been where fishermen, before going out to sea, have made offerings to the symbolic Phallus of Shiva. Then it’s time to head out to the islands, where you will swim and snorkel at Koh Tan Ming, the rock island in front of Poda, before heading around the island and over to Koh Si.

This rocky outcrop has many underwater reefs and caves, and tends to offer a bit better snorkeling than on the other island. There have been spotted Blacktip Reef Sharks at this area, but don't worry they are not considered a threat as reed sharks here are are quite small here.

There is a photo opportunity around the head of Chicken Island before the next stop at Tup islets for some beach time and a walk across the spectacular sandbank that connects it to Chicken island at low tide.

The last island stop will be at Koh Poda, where you will enjoy a buffet dinner of Thai food and BBQ skewers. There’s plenty of opportunity for more photographs as you watch the sun go down over the islands. After dark, the crew will entertain you with a fire dancing show under the stars.

Finally, it’s time to head back to the mainland, to the shores off Railay West beach. If you are lucky, you can swim with the harmless phosphorescent plankton. After dropping off passengers in Railay, you will head back to Ao Nang.

Once you get settled in your boat, glide through a lovely mangrove forest as you paddle around Khlong Pling. Your guide points out stalactites and stalagmites at the entrance of sea caves in the Ao Luk district, such as Tham Phee Hua Toh, a large, airy cavern with many prehistoric wall paintings and layers of shell formations providing insight to archaeologists.

After a couple hours exploring the waterway, head back to the village around noon for a delicious home-cooked Thai lunch.

With your appetite sated, set out for an afternoon kayak trip of about an hour, paddling toward a hidden lagoon surrounded by limestone rock. Follow your guide to more sea caves — Tham Lot, Tham Khao Wong and Tham Lod Nua. You can also visit a small rubber-production village at low tide.

What you can expect

Day 1

Pick-up from your hotel or the airport in Krabi and transfer to Khao Sok. En-route, glimpses of tropical rural life here in southern Thailand can be caught. Upon arrival at Elephant Hills Camp, buffet lunch is served at 12:00pm, a variety of delicious Thai dishes cooked not too spicy awaits you.

Time travel on a canoe trip

After lunch you can relax during a jungle river canoe trip down the Sok River. The canoes are very stable and safe; life jackets are provided as well as a local river guide to paddle the canoe. Drift along the jungle river passing Limestone Mountains and cliffs covered with exotic tropical vegetation. Sometimes hornbill birds can be seen flying high overhead or reptiles basking in the sun on the riverbanks. From the canoe you can experience some of the last areas of primary rainforest, a world that has changed little in thousands of years.

The amazing Elephant Experience

Get out of the canoe and head over to the elephant sanctuary. Here you can see, touch and learn about the life of Thai elephants and about the Elephant Hills elephant conservation project.

Your guide will also teach you about the mahout, the elephant caretaker. While participating in our amazing Elephant Experience you will get very close to and even get your hands on these magnificent animals, you will have the chance to interact with them and learn the secrets of their mahouts.

You will prepare and feed them one of their daily meals, including their dietary supplements that help with their digestion and their overall well-being, then watch them bathe before you scrub and wash them clean. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to really experience the Asian Elephant, this part of the world’s largest land animal!

The laid-back evening you deserve

After all this activity close to nature it is time for a hot shower in the unique bathroom of your luxury safari tent. Relax and enjoy the panoramic views of the surrounding jungle-covered mountains - this is 100% real nature! A wide selection of cocktails, wines and spirits is available at the "Jungle explorer’s club bar". Optional evening entertainment includes a movie presentation, a traditional Thai dance performance from local school children and a cooking demonstration, where you learn how to properly prepare Thai specialties.

At 8:00pm it is time for dinner in this unique location beside the rainforest, the sounds and the atmosphere will make this a memorable meal. Spend the night in your luxury safari tent with a comfortable bed, reading lights, hot water and a western-style toilet. The tents’ doors and windows are covered with mosquito netting as well as canvas flaps, so insects and reptiles will not bother you. Temperatures at night drop a little, the tents are well ventilated; blankets keep you warm in the chill of the night. This is real luxury so close to the heart of the rainforest!

Day 2

Spectacular Cheow-Lan-Lake Good morning Khao Sok!

Wake up to the sounds of nature and birds calling from the bushes next to the tent. By the time the sun comes up and the mist over the rainforest-covered mountains to the south of Elephant Hills clears, gibbons’ territorial morning calls echo down the valley. Tea and coffee making facilities are available in your tent for early risers; breakfast is at your leisure.

Spectacular Cheow-Lan-Lake

Today you will explore Cheow-Lan-Lake by local long-tail boat. The man-made lake is surrounded by Limestone Mountains and cliffs covered in tropical rainforest that rise up from the shore of the lake and disappear somewhere in the far distance. The scenery has been compared to Guilin in China and Halong Bay in Vietnam. Few people know of the lake and even less have visited it.

There are more than one hundred islands in the lake and it stretches over 60 km from North to South. In the 70’s the area was a hide-out for communists and students opposing the military dictatorship, which well preserved the area’s unique environment as it was spared from urbanization. You can enjoy the spectacular scenery from the boat and will have time to dip into the lake’s emerald water. Please bring your swimwear; towels are provided at the local raft house, where you will stop over for lunch and relaxation.

Good night, Khao Sok

In the late afternoon return to Elephant Hills for dinner and overnight in your luxury tent. The jungle bar will be open for people wanting to exchange stories of their day’s experiences at the lake, and as extra entertainment you can witness a different movie, a different dance performance and a different cooking demonstration today - enough program to keep you busy until dinner, and enough action to ensure sweet dreams after you have been lulled to sleep by the background symphony of insects and frogs.

Day 3

A Little Jungle Adventure Modern era jungle explorers

Start the day with a wholesome breakfast before you will come face to face with the jungle by exploring it on foot. It is not an army survival exercise, there are no prizes for the fastest, snakes and spiders do not jump out at you - it is just an excellent opportunity to explore the ecology of one of the world’s oldest rainforests, to see a great variety of exotic plants, tropical hardwood trees with huge roots, orchids, palms, ferns, bamboos, mosses… the variety is huge.

Birds such as the hornbill live high up above, gibbons can often be heard calling to their mates, a macaque or a leaf monkey may be swinging through the branches, beautiful butterflies buzz around - every day is different, but it is always truly wonderful to discover the great variety of life-forms that co-exists here together. Walk slowly. Look, learn and listen. Then you too will start to discover some of the secrets of the rainforest. Weather-dependent lunch can be served in the rainforest, cooked in bamboo, an old tradition of jungle explorers from past centuries.

Memories for a lifetime

Sadly around noon it is already time to return to Elephant Hills, and after a refreshing shower the onward transfer to your next hotel or the airport awaits you. All good things come to an end, they say, but luckily this unique experience will remain in your memory for the rest of your life!

Accommodation
