The Emerald Pool and the Blue Lagoon are part of the Khao Phra Bang Khram Nature Reserve, and their waters come from thermal hot springs that are deep underground . As such , the whole area becomes a hotbed from all over south eastern Thailand , and this leads to a lot of cramped conditions , where your enjoyment of the pools will be curtailed by the sheer number of people sharing the space with you .
This Emerald Pool in Krabi province is one of our top suggestions for things you should do in Krabi, Thailand and the number one recommendation for enjoying the underground natural springs that flourish in Krabi province. Emerald Pool or pond is not a hot spring, but it is cool water that is just heavenly to swim in. The water is replenished by natural streams running into the pool from freshwater sources on the limestone hill above .
200 baht fee into the Emerald pool , The price for children and Thai nationals is less . From the entrance you have two choices, the long walk or the short walk to the pools. The long walk is 1,400m along a raised concrete path that has been built through the rain forest, it’s a very pretty walk past ponds and streams. The short route is 800m along a dirty track. I recommend taking the long route in and the short route out .
Please be careful when you are walking on the edges of the pool. It is very slippery because of high calcium carbonate deposits . Please be careful when you are walking on the edges of the pool. It is very slippery because of high calcium carbonate deposits .

A large pile of improbably-piled rocks marks this spot, capped with a single giant boulder . The area to the west of the boulders usually has a gentle current running, which causes the soft corals to bloom, increasing in size and colour, so attracting even more fish. Tigerfish are numerous here – they won’t bite, but they may inadvertently nibble your fingers if offered a handful of bread. Yellow and black-banded bannerfish swim by in graceful columns, their banners streaming behind them. Red-bellied Fusiliers chase each other in courtship rituals.
