TREKS

 

The central part of the island is an almost uninhabitable jungle mountain, Khao Pom, peaking at 635 m. In contrast the differences in elevation are rather numerous with some reaching between 25 & 30%! With this tropical climate, trekking in the mountains on this small island can become rather strenuous and sometimes difficult.

In an effort to provide participants of all skill levels with a great hike experience, I’ve designed 6 different treks through the mountains and others along the Coast.

  • The trails in the jungle and the mountain will enable you to capture some of the most unique views of the island in a lush and preserved environment.
  • Different trails along the beach are also available depending on the tide. With great unspoilt coves and walks through the mangrove and palm groves.

YOUR DIFFERENT TREKS – Difficulty level from 1 to 4

  • Level 1 > Easy (accessible to all people in good health).
  • Level 2 > Moderate (accessible to all those in good health, who are doing some sport regularly).
  • Level 3 > Demanding (suits those that are physically active. Demanding some effort and certain endurance).
  • Level 4 > Strenuous (only suitable for people physically and psychologically prepared for highly engaging experience).
