Krabi Emerald Pool (Sa Morakot) is a unique attraction in southern Thailand.
Krabi is well-known for areas of outstanding natural beauty and one place that should make your must-see list is the Emerald Pool in the ThungTeao Forest Natural Park, an unusual lowland forest rich in bio-diversity, complete with a nature trail and a crystal pond.
Located in the KhaoPra-Bang Kram area, the nature trek is a superb place to spot rare animals and plant species including the Pitta Gurney bird which was once considered extinct.
The forest is lush with age-old trees stretching up to the sky, unusual forest creatures and limestone foothills that open onto a dazzling emerald pool.
There is a park office close by at Ban Bang Teao which offers some information although their primary goal is to ensure that the no-hunting zone is enforced and that no harm comes to this naturally beautiful sanctuary.
