Creek Trekking, easy access through the thick tropical jungle

There is no shortage of lovely little creeks in Southern Thailand. They offer a fun and generally easy way to access otherwise difficult jungle.

In Phang Nga Province, we've got several creek hikes. There are small waterfall encounters from time to time. Some of the more formidable ones usually have an optional way around via the jungle. Some of the waterfalls are quite climbable.

We don't take risks unless they are calculated in our favor and all safety precautions are in place. Several of our treks are extremely easy.

The other nice thing about hiking in creeks is that the riparian region (near water) tends to have the most biodiversity.

Walking sticks help a lot. I made a bunch.

Creek Trekking is one of my favourite hobbies aside from trailing! I’m fond of being here and checking new story. I never visit Thailand and I loved to, maybe this year is a nice year to visit the beautiful place! Wonderful photos!
