hiking to khlong chak waterfall and cave
Updated: Aug 18, 2020
This waterfall and cave are pretty much advertised in every tour around the island, but since neither myself or Zac (a guy I knew originally from Bangkok but who I kept bumping into around the islands), fancied doing a tour, we hatched a plan to rent a bike the next morning.
For 185 baht each we rented the bike and three bottles of fuel and set off. The waterfall entrance is easy to find since there's pretty much only one road around the island. We paid 100 baht (50 each) for parking, and were given walking sticks and a makeshift map, both of which came in super bloody handy!
We pretty much followed the trail, spent some time at the cave and the waterfall, then headed back. Unfortunately it was still the tail end of rainy season and Koh Lanta decided to remind us of that with an absolute banger of a rain and lightning storm that we had to wait out for a little while. After that we decided to call it a day since it pretty much rains all afternoon in Lanta.
We headed out again early the next morning if you want to check out the photos.
In case it isn't painfully obvious by now I'm much more comfortable being on the other side of the camera - but self development and all
