Emerald pool or ‘SaMorakot’is a green natural pool in the middle of the jungle. It flows from a natural warm stream in the plains of the southern Thai province of Krabi. The stream flows into three warm pools including Crystal, Emerald and Blue pools with water temperature between 30° and 50°degrees. Emerald pool is about 25 meters in width and 20 meters in length and 1.5 – 2 meters in depth. It is surrounded by various kinds of fascinating wild trees.
The pool awaits your visit in the middle of the tropical forest. It is not difficult to get there from Krabi town. Take highway no. 4 through NueaKhlong District and turn left at Khlong Thom intersection. Go straight on highway 4038 which leads to Lam Thap District for 100 meters and then turn right to Khlong Thom-Thap Sai road for about 17 kilometers to get to your destination. From the parking lot, continue on foot for roughly 800 meters and you will reach Emerald Pool.
However, you can take a detour appreciating the abundant nature along 2.7-km long trail before refreshing yourself in the pool.
You will definitely enjoy the crystal clear pool in teal under the bright sun. Its beauty truly deserves the title ‘emerald’. You will be so attracted by the clarity of the water that you cannot stop yourself from jumping right into the pool after taking in clean air along the walking trail. You will be head over heels about the place as soon as you see it.
In addition to the Emerald Pool, there is also “Blue Pool” located only 300 meters upstream. Crystal clear water in the blue pool is a result of various minerals stacked up at the bottom for countless years. There are bubbles coming up from the bottom of the pool periodically.
If you are looking for a place to relax your body from the rushing life, Emerald Pool is definitely that place for you.
