Khao Lak Mangrove Explorers - Kayaking in Khao Lak
- Un-touched Natural Surroundings - Never Before Seen By Tourists - True "Off The Beaten Track" Experience This trip is a real hidden gem. Unknown to many Khao Lak is home to a beautiful and almost undiscovered mangrove eco system with rivers, jungles and forests. Khao Lak's mangrove cover an area of over 60 square kilometers, and for the first time it is now possible to experience this breath taking and tranquil environment. On this trip we take a maximum of just 6 people, to keep it as excusive and relaxed as possible (larger groups are available on request) Leaving on our longtail boat from a small local fishing village we will take you on a cruise through previously unvisited, unseen mangrove rivers. After some time and photographic opportunities, we will arrive at our floating base hidden deep inside the mangroves. In these totally natural surroundings you will find only tranquility and nature at its best. From here we use kayaks to explore the small streams and rivers that twist and turn through the mangrove trees. After a while we will head back to the platform for some rest and refreshments. Once everybody has got their energy back there is a chance to swim and cool off in a sheltered, hidden in-land lagoon before heading back to the pier.
