One of the best places for jungle trekking in Thailand is near the Umphang Wildlife Sanctuary. The area was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999 and remains one of the most beautiful and remote areas for trekking in Thailand. Pass by spectacular limestone cliffs, raft down the Mae Klong River and spot gibbons, snakes and giant lizards along the way. Trek through the dense jungle and take a refreshing dive into Thailand's largest waterfall, Tee Lor Su. Spend the night in the local Kho Ta village and experience the simple life style of these locals. This is a jungle trek that goes remote; that takes you off the beaten track.
