Enjoy this gorgeous gem surrounded by large, overhanging trees with roots that extend across the water. Have a break for lunch at a local restaurant and then take some time to relax at the Hot Springs Waterfall. Soak in the soothing feeling of the warm water as it swirls around you. Finish off your tour with a visit to the majestic Tiger Cave Temple. Brave the walk up the stairs and be rewarded with spectacular views at the top.

Krabi: Tiger Temple, Hot Springs & Crystal Pool Jungle Tour

2. Krabi: Tiger Temple, Hot Springs & Crystal Pool Jungle Tour

Explore the Krabi jungle and its highlights on this half-day tour with a convenient hotel transfer. Start your journey with the Sra Morakot or Emerald Pool. Walk along the rainforest trail and cool off the heat of Krabi with a swim in this freshwater pool inside the Khao Phra Bang Khram Nature Reserve. Its green hue is a result of an abundance of minerals from the surrounding limestone hills. Next, visit Krabi's natural hot spring and its hot stream waterfall, Klong Thom Waterfall, located in the jungle 40km south of Krabi Town.  Though the falls itself is just a cascade tumbling gently a few meters, it is unique in that the spring water that feeds it bubbles up from the earth at a temperature of 40° Celsius. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before heading to Wat Tahm Suea, also known as the Tiger Cave Temple. Venture 1,200 steps up the hill for views of Krabi and its limestone rock formations.

Krabi: Early Jungle Tour to Krabi Hot Springs & Crystal Pool

3. Krabi: Early Jungle Tour to Krabi Hot Springs & Crystal Pool

Your experience begins are you are collected from your accommodation at sunrise before traveling in air-conditioned comfort to Klong Thom in the south of the Krabi province. Make a short stop in a 100-year-old wooden house to enjoy a homemade breakfast lovingly prepared by local people, before continuing to the Krabi Hot Spring in the south of Krabi through rural villages and breathtaking scenery. Once there, relax in hot-tub jacuzzis formed by nature, known locally as "nam tok rawn". The water there comes from thermal springs, originating deep underground in volcanic chambers. Located in the jungle, this site features naturally hollowed-out "bathtubs" in smooth stone, filled to the brim with fresh running spring water at a pleasant 35-42° Celsius. A visit to the hot springs would not be complete without a trip to the nearby crystal pool, known as Sa Morakot in Thai. It is a large natural pool is filled with pure spring water which is ideal to take a refreshing swim in. Along the way to the pool, pass by a series of clear mini-pools, waterfalls, and streams, as well as hundreds of species of tropical trees, plants, and birds. Next up, visit the Tiger Cave Temple, or "Wat Tham Seua" in Thai. The temple is set inland in a beautiful forest and is in fact a famous meditation center for monks and nuns who come from all over Thailand to retreat there. The temple is laid out as a small village with a main boulevard lined with monkeys with a large statue of Guan Im at the end. From there you are free to walk around the nature trail through the Khiriwong Valley or double back to visit the main Tiger Cave and bell tower (the largest in Southern Thailand). For those who are fit enough, a 1,237-stair climb leads to the famous mountain-top shrine for a view that will take away what little breath you have left. Before returning to your hotel, make a short stop at the famous "Black Crab" monument in Krabi Town with a stunning view of the Khao Khanab Nam twin mountains. These majestic natural wonders act as the gateway to Krabi City with the river running between the two limestone cliffs forming a widely photographed spot.

Thanks so much for an amazing Tour! We did everything we wanted to do and our tour guide Tan was very informative and also funny! learnt lots of interesting things about the places we visited and Thailand in general. Tan brought great energy to the trip and took lots of photos which he sent to us after. We also bumped into Tan the day after on another tour and he was lovely to us, making sure we were alright and had a good time on the tour the day before! Thanks - Alex and Louise

Fantastic trip! Our guide Tuk was lovely and went out of his way to make sure we had a good time. Really enjoyed cooling off in the Emerald pool after the walk to get there. The food we had for lunch was very tasty and only 150BHT for all you can eat and drink. The steps up to Tiger Cave Temple were a killer, make sure you take enough to drink and go slowly! Really recommend this trip! :-)

I had an absolute AMAZING DAY! Our tour guide was called Abu and honestly he went above and beyond for us. Very knowledgeable, funny and friendly. He even climbed the 1,260 steps up the Tiger Cave Temple with us! He is Mr Customer service! I travelled as a solo traveller and never once felt alone throughout the whole day! Thank you Abu for your amazing service x Charlene/Soca

We had Abi as a guide and he was so lovely. We were able to go on our own pace but he made sure that we had a great experience.

I loved the experience! Our guide Tan was amazing, giving us lots of relevant information about Thailand! I highly recommend it
