Mu Koh Lanta National Park, Ko Lanta

3.6
#2 of 8 in Nature in Ko Lanta
At the southern tip of Ko Lanta Yai, Mu Koh Lanta National Park boasts a gorgeous beach and mountainous terrain popular with hikers, sunbathers, and divers. You'll enter at the top of a steep hill, which you can descend by car or along the nature trail instead. At the bottom, you'll see a conspicuous old lighthouse on a hill jutting into the sea. Hike up to the lighthouse or simply relax on the white-sand beach, where the clear, calm water is perfect for swimming. Be careful not to leave your bags unattended on the sand, however, because the unscrupulous resident monkeys will eagerly search them for food. Before you visit Ko Lanta, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • The scooter roared to Lanta National Park for 200 baht and a parking fee of 20 baht. Some of the mountain roads on the road are indeed steep, with a large slope and a large bend. But I think it's okay, there's no risk ⚠️'s going to be slow. The scenery along the way can not be ignored, really beautiful, no worse than the lighthouse to see the sea. We didn't do enough of our homework and missed the natural trail of the rainforest. Only the lighthouse, still wonderwhy it takes 2 hours to climb a tower. A few days ago to the tiger temple of the jungle, the sky and the big trees and muddy mountain road, the humid cool climate has a little fear. We didn't meet the robber monkey, and it seems that we're all pretty good, maybe we don't have food in our hands.

  • It's true that the entrance is paid, we did not make the walk that goes to the lighthouse this time, and had a good time on the beach. A small food outlet to cool off and eat. Qque monkeys who will come to see you if you feed them. . (not our thing) In short, nothing more. .

  • Definitely worth a visit. Entrance fee is 200 baht per person, plus 20 per scooter, but you can easily spend the whole day. The walk through the jungle takes about 40-60 minutes depending on the heat and fitness. From the lighthouse you have a great view in all directions, and a few nice photo opportunities. Then there's the white sandy Beach with beautiful clear water you can spend the rest of the day.
  • Great place for a half day trip if staying in Koh Lanta. Be prepared to drive on steep hills to get there. Entrance fee is 200 baht for foreigners and it's way cheaper for Thai people, +20 baht for scooter. There is a rocky and a sand beach (you can swim here), well maintained picnic area (be aware of monkeys), toilets, showers. At the time when we visited there was no food service, only drinks and ice cream. Visitor center is very poor. Paved hiking trail (1.7km) through the rain forest was amazing with a lot of stairs.
