Mountain Biking In Krabi

mountain biking in krabi

A mountain bike, available for rent in Krabi Town and in Ao Nang, will allow you to go ‘off-road’ and explore the network of dirt tracks that go back for miles behind the highways. You will come across astonishing landscapes, small farming communities – and no doubt a whole host of memorable encounters with friendly and welcoming local people.

The main highway network is also fairly cycle-friendly. The roads are generally not very busy and on the majority of them there is a hard shoulder. Local car drivers are also very used to motorcyclists, so other two-wheeled road users – although fairly uncommon – pose no problem for them.

The combination of clean water, sea cliffs, and mangrove-rimmed canals has made Krabi a popular setting for kayakers. Four operators offer options from beach rentals by the hour to full daytrips (with lunch) into spectacular and remote mangrove channels where there is a good chance of seeing monkeys, eagles and otters. The kayakers also paddle into Krabi River opposite town, and out to the Koh Hong island group. Kayaking is highly rewarding, informative, and when supervised properly, an environmentally friendly way to experience Krabi’s coastal beauty.

Elephant Riding & Trekking In Krabi

The elephant is seen as a symbol of the nation and a talisman for the Thai people. With their wrinkly grey skin and swaying trunk, they are a fascinating combination of brute force, gentleness and remarkable agility that inspires both respect and affection. With elephants fast disappearing from the wild in Thailand, the best place to see these fascinating animals up close is in a trekking camp. There are only a few camps in Krabi – such establishments must follow strict guidelines as set by the National Livestock Department regarding the provision of adequate food, water and shade for their animals, as well as proper health care.
