Adventure trekking (+/- 4 hrs) in the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park
(Bang Pae Waterfall) & Gibbon Rehabilitation Project

 

 

Price: 4,800 THB per person

 

Participate in this Phuket Photo Tours’ exclusive attraction and enjoy the one and only real rain forest trekking in the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, home to the beautiful Bang Pae Waterfall and the highly meriting Gibbon Rehabilitation Project.

 

Attention:

This 4hrs trek in the rain forest imperatively requires proper walking shoes and physical fitness as it is considered of medium difficulty with hard parts climbing upwards and downwards.

 

In order to support the wonderful work done by the Gibbon Rehalibiltation Project – an NGO that rescues and rehabilitates gibbons poached around Thailand for exhibition purposes in bars or for taking pictures with tourists – Phuket Photo Tours negociated an agreement unique in Phuket: the possibility for you to trek in the rain forest with the local guides!

 

This tour is the last true and ultimate nature activity in Phuket that will give you a chance to spot and photograph wild life in its environment; spiders, snakes, frogs, lizards, butterflies, etc… and if you are extremely lucky some of the gibbons that the volunteers of the Project have rehabilitated and released in the forest.

 

This trekking starts early morning (06:30am) to give you a chance to go deep in the heart of the forest with a local guide to the different feeding areas.

 

Althought gibbons are less and less seen – which is precisely the aim of the Project, you will be amazed by the rich wildlife you can see so close to Phuket beaches and bars!

 

Bring your telephoto and/or macro lenses (or rent one from us) to capture snakes, frogs, wild orchids, etc.

 

Follow the stream of the waterfall, climb all the way to the last gibbons feeding station and just revel in Phuket’s last pocket of nature.

After plenty of photos of the beautiful stream of the waterfall and countless magical emcounters with the forest inhabitants, you will be back at the bottom of the waterfall where you will be able to spend some time at the exhibition area of the Gibbon Rehabilitation Project and learn about the usefull work the center and its volunteers are accomplishing.

 

In order to allow this wonderful project to keep up with their work, the tour price includes a donation.
