Than Bokkhorani National Park In Krabi Provence Thailand

covers 37.5 rai (1 rai = 160 square meters) in Tambon Ao Leuk Tai, one kilometer from the Tambon Ao Leuk Neua Market intersection on the Ao Luk Sak road. The park is shady and forested by many different species of trees growing around the attractive pool after which the park is named, the Sa Bokkhorani. Species include the wild gardenia, asoka, and Apocynaceae. The Sah Bohk Koranii flows through a winding passage in the mountain. At the north end of the pool is a footprint of the Buddha carved in wood and a shrine of Chao PhoTo Yuan - To Chong.

At the park headquarters, close to the small town of Ao Leuk and 46km northwest of Krabi, emerald-green waters flow out of a narrow cave in a tall cliff and into a large lotus pool, which spills into a wide stream and then divides into many smaller rivulets. At each rivulet there’s a pool and a little waterfall; the effect is magical. The park was established in 1991 and protects a large area of islands.

Several National Parks also include the mainland interior which is covered with rich forest and features refreshing rock pools, waterfalls, caves, hot springs and nature reserves with walking trails. These inland beauty spots are often busy at weekends with large family groups and local excursions. Outside these times, they're quiet, serene and incredibly peaceful.
