Jungle Treks

Ko Chang’s jungle wilderness is a great place to get in some superb trekking. It’s bursting with flora, fauna, wildlife, waterfalls and with the highest peak at 744m it can offer a rewarding challenge. Most people don’t make it off the beach which is a shame! There are several small companies offering some great treks to suit different abilities and timescales, typically half and full day treks. The full day treks are usually more demanding, especially in the hot, humid climate, so just ensure you know what the trek involves. Each of the tours includes transfers, water, backpack and mozzie spray. It’s recommended you have a decent pair of shoes and always worth taking a bit of extra water. The following local guides are friendly, know their stuff about the area, speak English, have small group sizes and offer various treks. They each have treks leaving every day of the week; all prices are per person, and they need at least two people to do a tour.
