What you'll do

We'll meet in a central location in Sairee where we'll be able to stock up on snacks and drinks if necessary and start hiking from there. This is a more moderatetly challenging hike, but you'll still work up a good sweat as Koh Tao's climate is hot and humid all day. Starting the hike early but still late enough for you to have time to get a good breakfast before meeting up, will help us avoid the hottest times of day. The path leads through local living areas and then up a little hill where we'll reach a lush jungle trail. If we're lucky, we might see some exotic birds and butterflies, sometimes even some lizards running through the forest floors. The trail then leads to a beach on the east side of the island where we stop to have a snack, can take some photos or even jump into the ocean if you're keen. We'll be spending around 20-30 minutes on the beach, before heading back again. The activity will take about 2.5 hours from start to finish, you'll be walking a total distance of about 8.5km and you'll get back to where we started the hike from.

Karin

I'm a Koh Tao longterm local and know the Island's hiking trails in and out. I've hiked all my life, growing up in the mountainous country of Switzerland. I'm also trained in first aid and do know the best spots for after-hiking treats or sunset watching on the island. I'm a bubbly, fun-loving, positive person that will happily share all knowledge about the island. Why should you hike with me? - You can put your full energy into enjoying the hike without having to worry about checking track conditions or navigating - I will guarantee to find you the best possible spots for photos and views (and i'll be happy to take pictures for you) - I'll keep you safe, should anything happen - You'll get to hear some local insider information you'll never find in ANY guidebook -Join an existing group and make some new friends along the way

I'll take you on a jungle hike most people struggle to find on their own. The path will lead from the west side (sairee beach) all the way to the east side of the island and back.
