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.
You will start off in the fruit plantations at the back of Klong Prao elephant camp, then head deep into the jungle and up 500 meters to an outstanding coastal viewpoint looking out across Kai Bae, Klong Prao, and Chai Chet beaches. After taking in the views you will then head back down the other side of the mountain passing another great viewpoint, and then down to a river where you will have lunch in a picturesque jungle setting.
After lunch you trek 30 minutes to a secret waterfall which along with the viewpoint is the highlight of the day. The waterfall has several levels, at the top level there is a good sized pool for swimming and if you are feeling brave you can jump off the rocks into the refreshing cool water. Due to the waterfalls location, deep in the jungle, it remains off-limits to tourists on Koh Chang unless of course you are with Tan who will show you the way!
After cooling down you spend 2 hours trekking along a scenic river with several river crossings and ending up back to the start point where you can take a quick break and then transfer back to your hotel.
