The highlights of Thung Teo
Perfect eco-tourism spot
Its simplicity and inherent beauty make this park a tourist destination different from the rest. As soon as you enter this natural park, you will be greeted by a spectacular color combination. There are very long trees. When you look up at the sky, you isolate this park from the rest of the world. Visitors have to devour a closed emerald and crystalline blue sphere. Both first-time and repeat visitors feel transported to another world.
Another thing that makes Thung Teao Forest Nature Park unique is how visitors can jump from one limestone cliff to another. These white limestone cliffs perfectly contrast with the dense forest’s green groves. One thing you must admire in this place is how different animals and plants mix and mingle in this natural park. While you’re here, the Thung Teao Crystal Lagoon is a popular attraction and a place to devour. It got its name due to the crystalline effect of the water.
It’s a fantastic swimming place, and this beautiful ecological site is the park’s heart.
Emerald Pool Krabi
Also known as (Sa Morakot), Krabi’s Emerald Pool is also a unique attraction in Thung Teao Forest Natural Park. It is located in the area of Khao Pra-Bang Kram. With a 1.7-mile nature trail and a crystal pond, this site is home to some exotic animal and plant species, such as the Pitta Gurney bird, which people thought was extinct for a time. Beautiful waters for swimming.
Just as the Emerald Crystal Pool is the highlight of this park, there is also a waterfall to explore. This pool is a unique eco-tourism spot surrounded by a tropical forest with a fantastic aquamarine color scheme. It’s perfect for bird watching.
Krabi Hot Springs
The hot springs here flow from an underground volcanic chamber that cascades down, creating a waterfall that flows into the creek and some natural “bathtubs” in the rock. The water is around 35-42 degrees Celsius, perfect temperatures for relaxing. The mineral salts in the hot springs are believed to have therapeutic properties. These jacuzzi-like hot spring baths are just perfect.
