If you want to combine an elephant trek with a not-too-strenuous walk in the rain-forest of Koh Chang, then this the only way to do both activities in the same day! Your guide on this trek is Mr Tan.
Key Points: Pick up time: 08:20. Drop off time: 17:00. Lunch provided. Price: 1,000THB. Optional elephant ride costs 500THB. Kids Reductions: Yes. Days: Monday only.
We will walk up the Klong Son Valley in the North of Koh Chang, and stop for lunch on a mountain top at a height of 500 meters. Afterwards we walk down the other side of the mountain, and we will reach the Klong Son Waterfall where we can swim in the cooling waters. Next we head to the Ban Kwan Chang elephant camp where we have the chance to take a 40 minute elephant ride through the lowland jungle. The trek includes transportation, lunch, coffee, fruit and lots of water to drink. Appropriate footwear is essential, and you should also bring some mosquito repellent, sun cream, a swimming costume, a towel and light clothing.
This tour is scheduled for Mondays and Fridays, but on request this can be changed to another day. If you don't want to take the elephant ride then you can still go on the walking trek and stay at the camp during the elephant ride. In this case you pay only 1,000 baht.
