Private trip to Tiger Cave Temple, Hot Springs and Emerald Pool (Full Day)
One of the world's natural wonders, the Emerald Pool is created by the rich copper content in the water. The color is truly incredible and on a hot sunny day really does look Emerald Green.
You can choose to walk to the pool through the jungle which takes about 20 minutes or by a direct pathway which takes about 10 minutes. The jungle walk is a really nice easy walk taking you through beautiful countryside. You'll be amazed at the sound of the birds and insects.
Once you arrive at the pool, there are toilet facilities and a visitor center with a small amount of information about the wildlife in the Park.
The Pool itself is a magical place, do be careful though when entering walking to the pool as it can be a bit slippy arund the edges.
The temperature of the water is warm enough to be able to just lie in without feeling any chill but is still refreshing. The water is crystal clear and really soft water giving it a really luxurious feeling on the body.
The hot springs are located in a beautiful jungle area just minutes drive away from the Emerald Pool.
At the springs they have a well maintained set of man made pools with easy access where you can just sit and enjoy the water. A little further along a nice jungle path (about 200 meters) are the real natural springs. There is literally a waterfall of hot soothing water here with a series of natural hollows in the rock where you can lie and just let the warm water wash over you.
Bathing in a waterfall of bath temperature water is a great way to get rid of any aches and pains. Perhaps its a perfect start to your holiday in Krabi, wash away all your stress.
The water is claimed to have therapeautic qualities helping to treat a whole bucketful of ailments from kidney stones to gout. We can't make any promises but its got to be worth a try.
We just put some new pictures of the Emerald Pool and Hot Springs on our picture gallery. These were taken on a trip at the beginning of May 2014.
