Trekking is another good experience in exploring the green land on Koh Lanta. You can sit on the elephant back to the viewpoint or the waterfall.
Sea kayak or canoe: This is also the best way to explore the scenic beauty of the island. You will closely get in touch with the nature by paddling through the mangrove forest, the towering cliff and enter the caves which appear only when the water level is low.
