Khao Phanom Bencha National Park is 20 kms from Krabi town along Talad Kao-Ban Huai Too Road. It covers a total area of 50 sq.km. including:: Amphoe Ao Luk, Amphoe Khao Phanom, and Amphoe Muang Krabi.
Phanom Bencha National Park has a thick virgin forest on its high peaks and is rumoured to contain a tiger.
Serious hikers should head to Phanom Bencha Mountain, the 1,400m Phanom Bencha peak will take three days to climb.
For the more casual backcountry explorers, less strenuous options are available and easily arranged. Patty is familiar with the high points of Phanom Bencha, and a hike through the park can be tailored to suit any level of fitness and ambition.
For quick, reliable transport to a trailhead in the thick of the forest, a custimized round-trip car and driver can be organised for you by Patty.
