ECO Premium The Hidden Lake with Sunrise
- Duration: 6 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Mueang Krabi, Krabi
- Product code: TOB2CJONINT001
Nong Thale Lake is located about 15 minutes away from bustling Ao Nang. The atmosphere and peacefulness during the sunrise is hard to beat anywhere else in the world. This little-known slice of paradise is yet to be discovered by tourists, making it a real hidden gem.
We will arrive just before dawn to meet our local friends who will take us out on this amazing sunrise journey. Climb aboard the special built boat and enjoy a traditional Southern Thai breakfast of Khao Yam (mixed rice with herbs), Kanom Jeen (rice noodles with Thai curry topped with several local herbs) and fresh fruits. For those not yet ready for the local breakfast, we will also have a more western choice along with local coffee and tea. If we are lucky, our private guide will be also play and sing a local song as we cruise out onto the lake. As the sun begins to rise, the scene will unfold, bathed in all the magical colours of the sunrise. Watch the sun climb above the towering limestone karsts covered in lush jungle.
As the air begins to warm, it’s time to move on to another amazing place for kayaking and swimming - Khlong Nam Sai. Here we will navigate the shallow, clear waters of the lake to the entrance of its source. Paddle along the narrow river to the crystal lagoon, park your kayak and jump into the refreshing waters, surrounded by beautiful mangrove forests.
