Khao Phanom Bencha National Park (Krabi National Park) is 1,397 meter in height above msl, providing watershed area for the surrounding areas of Krabi Province and then flows to Andaman Sea. Phanom Bencha mountain range is layered from north to south. Phanom Bencha National Park has thick forest on its highest peaks. Its marvelous scenery is enhanced by streams, waterfalls, and wild animals. It is around 50 sq.km in area. Some of the parks main attractions are Namtok Huai To (waterfall that runs down over rocks onto 11 huge pools, each with its own name such as Wang Thewada, Wang Sok, Wang Chan etc.) Tham Khao Phung (5 caves whose beauty is enhanced by countless stalagmites and stalactites of various shapes. Some are like mushrooms, others like pagodas and curtains. The walls are white and glitter brightly) Numerous trails snake through the park providing excellent opportunities for hiking. The park head quarters, with manicured lawns, looks like a botanical garden. There is a well maintained path with concreted steps to the waterfalls. On the way there is a large board mapping out the points of interest on a '2km Nature Walk' which is an alternative route to the falls
There is no public transport to the park, and it doesn’t offer any lodging or eating options. But the park is an easy day trip from Krabi by hired motorcycle; just follow the signposted turn-off from Hwy 4. Alternatively, you can hire a túk-túk for around 300B return.
