8 Jungle Trekking

Jungle Trekking
Jungle Trekking
On Koh Chang and Trat you can find good guides who can take you jungle tracking deep into the jungle and mountain hiking up some of the island's highest peaks. Using the service of an official park ranger may sound like a very smart thing to do, as they will know the entire area like the back of their hand, but according to previous guests, most of these guys speak very little English making the trip more like a race with a few fingerpointings along the way, than a learning experience about the wild life on Koh Chang. Several different types of treks are available, ranging from family treks to mountain climbing. Be prepared to get sprayed with the strongest bug spray that is available before starting your Jungle Trek.
