Why is it so special?

Situated amidst mangrove and swamp forest, Tha Pom is home to an unique eco-system. This is because of its unique location where the seawater mix with freshwater during the high-tide period.

As our tour guide showed us the landing along the wooden trail which allows visitors to stop for a dip, we quickly took our clothes off and plunged in without further

Tha Pom Klong Song Nam Nature Trail

The natural forest trail of Tha Pom has a total length of about 700 metres and takes
around 45 minutes to complete.

There are boards along the way at Tha Pom to provide explanation on the relationships between the different species of animals and plants within this specific eco-system. At the end of the Tha Pom trail is a lookout tower where visitors can get a bird's eye view of the nature park.

Although the natural stream looks narrow but it is almost two meters deep.

The water is so clear that you can even see the bottom of the stream.

When we took a dip inside the stream, the water was cool and even chilling. It was invigorating and for a moment, you almost forgot where you are.

The swim at Tha Pom crystal stream marks the end of our Ao Thalane Kayaking Full Day Trip. We were truly exhausted yet enraptured by the day's exciting adventure.
