Khao Khanab Nam

Krabi Town Attractions

Standing at 100 metres tall the stunning Khao Khanab Nam Mountains are one of Krabi’s most famous landmarks. These majestic natural wonders act as the gateway to Krabi city with the river running between the two limestone cliffs forming a widely photographed beauty spot.

Inside, the mountains hide a very spiritual site, caves with collections of stalagmites and stalactites are definitely worth exploring, although the location is more well-known for the large number of human skeletons that have been found here and the theories surrounding their demise.

In addition to discovering these mystical caverns, you can also climb one of the two mountains. Visiting Khao Khanab Nam is certainly worth a trip to discover the inside of these prominent mountains and in addition it can be easily combined with a visit to a nearby mangrove forest and a traditional Thai fishing village.


Khao Khanab Nam Highlights and Features

The Khao Khanab Nam Mountains are widely regarded as the symbol of Krabi so its well-worth scheduling a trip to see these historic landmarks close up. Inside the caves there are beautiful cluster formations of stalagmites and stalactites created over thousands of years alongside prehistoric paintings.

A large number of human skeletons were also discovered inside these caves which legend considers to have been people who were either trapped when cut off by the water, or who were once living in the caves and perished in an ancient flood. The caves are easily accessed via a stairwell.

It’s also worth stopping by the Ko Klang fishing village as part of the trip, where you’ll discover a museum and a local craft centre. Villagers will demonstrate cotton weaving, the making of local tools and utensils plus fish breeding, it’s also possible to buy souvenirs and gifts direct from the local folk.
