Mountain biking is an ideal way to see more of the local Khao Lak area. Rather than driving around in a minibus to various sights of interest, why not travel at your own pace and take in all the sights and sounds along the way. Mountain biking is gaining in popularity in Thailand and is a healthy, eco friendly way to discover more of the local Khao Lak area.
Thai Muang is a small town roughly half way between Phuket Island and Khao Lak and features as the main destination on the Thai Muang Turtles and Waterfalls mountain biking tour.
Mountain Biking Tour
The tour starts at the northern point of Phuket Island. First point of interest is cycling over the Sarasin Bridge which connects Phuket to mainland Thailand. After this, the tour continues for a couple of kilometres before making a turn onto small country roads. These roads have only light traffic and are perfect for biking. The ride is approximately 30 kilometres to Thai Muang before stopping for lunch at a beachside Thai restaurant.
After lunch there is a chance to visit the Thai Muang Turtle Sanctuary run by the Phang Nga Coastal Fisheries Research and Development Centre.
The tour continues in the afternoon along a 15 kilometre stretch to a waterfall. There are a few hills on this section of the tour but nothing too strenuous and remember, there are the nice cooling waters to look forward too at the Ton Prai Waterfall.
The tour is accompanied by a support vehicle so if at any point you fancy a break from cycling you can have someone drive you along the same route.
