Koh Chang : Trat, Thailand
Go Jungle trekking with Tan Trekking. Tans no-nonsense treks have given him a celebrity type status on the beautiful island of Koh Chang. He’ll show you secret waterfalls and dramatic coastal viewpoints hidden deep in the islands jungle interior.
The dense, mountainous terrain, along with the heat and humidity will test even the most experienced trekkers. The pristine jungle interior covers a massive 80 percent of the island, and with only a handful of trails it is still relatively unexplored. The highest point on the island is 744 metres, with a number of other peaks ranging from 500-700 metres. Tans Trekking routes range from half day family treks in the outskirts of the jungle to challenging 8 hour treks heading deep into the islands interior.
It starts gently in the fruit plantations, then you will head deep into the jungle and up 650 metres to the top of Jom mountain, which is the highest peak in the north.
After having lunch at the top and admiring the stunning coastal views, you head back down the mountain to a waterfall where you take a much needed bath to cool down. After a cool and invigorating bath, you then trek another 40 minutes back to the starting point.
This trek requires a good level of fitness. There is a 400 meter peak in front of Jom mountain which you need to go up and down first, this is also the case on the way back when you head down to the waterfall, so you will be walking up and down all day. Tan has a lot of experience, he judges groups and sets a pace to ensure everybody has an enjoyable day and makes it to the top safely.
