Getting There

Located in the jungle near the Khao Phra Bang Khram Nature Reserve, the Emerald Pools Krabi are located about fifty kilometers from Krabi or Ao Nang. Transports options include a very long motorbike ride, or a car hire. Another option is to join one of the many tours heading out there, often combining multiple local attractions.

From the parking lot, there are two routes to the Emerald Pool, the main road and the trail road. The trail way is quickly on the right after entrance. It is 1.4 km long but so much nicer that the big path going directly from entrance to the pool. You can reach the pool via trails through the Khao Nor Chu Chi forest. Walking distance is between 1.2-1.4 kms with no hard slopes.

Your journey to the pool offers a rare opportunity to take in the local wildlife. You will come across mini-pools, waterfalls and streams will be part of the scene, as well as all the flora to be viewed. This rainforest is also home to Gurney’s Pitta, a beautiful endangered songbird which was once thought to be extinct due to no field observations between 1952 and 1986.

Close by also is the Blue Pool, this one is particularly hot and not available for swimming.

Don’t also miss the Krabi Hot Springs, which is very close by.

Price: Admission for Emerald Pools Krabi is 100 baht for children and 200 baht for adults
