You will start this tour at 8am from your location in Kanchanaburi or at 6am from your location in Bangkok.
First you will visit the stunning Erawan Waterfalls which are an hour drive away, where you will hike up and have the chance to take a swim in some of the seven pools. This takes about 3 hours.
After you enjoy a Thai lunch in a restaurant at the base of the waterfalls. Our tour guide will order some delicious local food for you.
After lunch you will head to the Hellfire Pass & Museum, which is a touching and informative place about the Thailand-Burma-Railway built in WWII. Take your time at the museum and walk along the old rail path through one of the cuttings.
After a 30 minutes drive you will arrive at Sai Yok Nationalpark where you will board your own private raft. A longtail boat tows you up stream and you get to drift down the River Kwai in tubes or only with life jackets and have a shower under a waterfall.
You will stay the night on a floating bungalow and enjoy delicous dinner and lunch on your private raft.
Wake up to the sound of the waterfall and leave for a 2 hour drive to Sangkhlaburi (close to the Maynmar border). You will visit the Border Market at the border to Myanmar. After check in to your accommodation at a rustic Thai Guesthouse by the lake and enjoy a delicous lunch with beautiful view over the lake.
Take a boat trip on the lake where you will visit the (Under)Watertemple either by foot or boat, depending on the waterlevel, walk up some stairs to the jungle temple and drive past the longest wooden bridge in Thailand.
The rest of the day you will spend relaxing by the lake and taking a swim or reading a book. Dinner will be at your accommodation.
The third day you will walk through some jungle plantations with a local guide after breakfast. Arrived by the river you will board a bamboo raft and float down the river. This is an exclusive attraction and only available for Mellow Adventures clients. After the trekking and rafting you will be served a simple but delicous lunch and fresh fruit by the river.
After the 2 hours drive back direction Kanchanaburi you will take a Kayak Trip down the River Kwai for about 1 hour. Arrive at the Elephant Sanctuary where you wash the elephants in the river and feed them fresh fruit after. This is a really heartwarming and unforgettable encounter.
Nothing is better than great coffee or a refreshing drink with a great view. You will have a coffee break at a local secret café overlooking the River Kwai.
After you walk over the Wooden Bridge built in WWII along the River Kwai and steep rocks and visit the Krasae Cave which was used as a hospital during that period.
To finish a great day you will visit the infamous Bridge over the River Kwai and with a bit of luck you will even see the train crossing it.
