Koh Ra Koh Phangan Reviews
Steady Climb Mar 13, 2010
While staying on the island of Koh Phangan I had to find a way to fill my days other then sun and beach, thus I decided to hike up Khao Ra. It is the highest point on the island and will give you the workout you never expected on vacation. The top is around 630m and its trail to the top is only about 2.5km, so you get to the top in a hurry. The path is not the best but it is noticeable the whole length of the trail so you don’t have to worry about getting lost. When we went there a dog was acting as somewhat of a guide and walked up the trail with us on a few occasions. You do need to keep an eye out for creepy crawlers though as my friend and I were stung by something around the top- it made for a frantic descent for my friend at least. There also is a hostel at the bottom where you can eat or buy water if you need. I would definitely recommend checking this out.
