Crystal Lagoon is located in the Thung Teao Forest Natural Park, about 55 kilometers from Krabi Town. Located in the Khao Pra-Bang Kram area, the Thung Teao Forest National Park is a magnificent rainforest area home to a diverse range of flora and fauna – including several rare species of animals and plants.  The forest is lush with age-old trees stretching up to the sky, unusual forest creatures and limestone foothills that open onto a dazzling green pool. There is a 1.5 kilometers hike over a wooden boardwalk and dirt trails through the lush tropical rainforest to get Crystal Lagoon. The first spot is the “Glass Pool”. Though swimming is forbidden here, it is a great stop to watch the fish swimming in the crystal clear water. A short walk further is “Emerald Pool” with its warm, crystal clear emerald green waters. It is beautiful place to swim if it is not over-run by tourists. Continuing walking further, eventually you will come to “Blue Pool,” a spring fed water pond, which is turquoise and feeds the Emerald Pool. Thailand travel packages
