In the 1970’s the region was a popular hideout for communists and students opposing the Thai military dictatorship, but today it’s home to wildlife and hundreds of limestone karsts jutting out of the water.

You’ll see a large variety of exotic plants such as jungle orchids, ferns, bamboo groves and tropical hardwood trees with huge roots. High in the canopy monkeys and gibbons swing through the trees and birds like the hornbill can be seen flying around or perched on a branch. Every day is different but it is truly wonderful to discover the great variety of life forms that co-exists together.
