Thung Teao national park Krabi.

Krabi is well-known for its natural beauty and a must see during your stay is the Crystal Lagoon in the Thung Teao Forest Natural Park, an lowland forest you have never seen before, with a great bio-diversity,a nature trail and a crystal lagoon.

Located in the Khao Pra-Bang Kram area, the nature trail is a great place to see rare animals and plant species. The forest is a lush with age-old trees stretching up to the sky, unusual forest creatures and limestone foothills that open onto a dazzling green pool.

Thung Teao Forest National Park is a virgin rainforest home to spectacular flora and fauna unseen elsewhere in Thailand. A 2.7 kilometres nature trail provides a superb vantage point, plus there’s a waterfall to explore, although the major attraction is the crystal lagoon also known as the emerald pool. The emerald waters are wonderfully warm and crystal clear making them great for swimming in, there’s even a small ladder to help you get in and out.

It’s a stunning eco-tourist spot with visually beautiful aquamarine colours surrounded by tropical rain forest and a fantastic spot for bird watchers. The journey to the crystal lagoon begins at the wildlife sanctuary office and takes around 800 metres through a well-trodden forest path or alternatively you can follow the longer nature trail which winds through spectacular tropical rain forest – one of the few remaining in Southern Thailand. The nature trek should be taken slowly so that you get a chance to see some of the very rare animals living in this ancient woodland.
