KAYAKING AT BOR THOR VILLAGE

Borthor Kayaking
One of the most popular activities in Krabi is kayaking through magnificient sea caves in Bor Thor. This simple, relaxing and environmental friendly activity enables visitors to paddle through a world of nature wonders that drives Krabi’s tourism.

Krabi, Surat Thani, Phang Nga and Trang are the areas in Southern Thailand where karst intrusions are most pronounced. These limestone karsts were formed 260 million years ago when shallow sea, running the entire length of South East Asia, slowly built up deep deposits of coral and shells which were later buried under sediments washing in from the land. Compressed  deep  in the earth, these remains  of  calcium carbonate formed limestone karsts which was trust up 30 million years ago when two continental plate collided. ( When you are in “Tham Pee Hua Toh,” look for the supporting evidence of fossillized sea shells up in the cave. ) With the celestial eruption, a labyrinth of cave chambers,  passageways and magnificent outdoor landscapes are created as favourite for kayaker’s paradise.

The high number of ancient paintings found in caves proved the existence of a prehistoric seafarers from neighbouring countries taking shelter here during the monsoon season when the sea condition is not suitable for trading.

Hit the water and sweat it up by kayaking so as to enjoy and appreciate the spectacular scenery of the lowland mangrove forest. Paddle to see  “Tham Lod Tai” where a dramatic tunnel cuts through a limestone mountain decorated  with  thousands of well-formed stalactites, and then visit “Tham Pee Hua Toh” which is Krabi’s  most  celebrated cave for prehistoric paintings. Paddle to see “Tham Khao Wong”  a gorgeous inner lagoon and then continue to “Tham Lod Nua”, a cave with splendid stalactites and stalagmites formations.
