Emerald Pool (Sa Morakot), Khlong Thom

#7 of 37 in Nature in Krabi Province
Geologic Formation · Nature / Park
Plunge into the warm, clear waters at Emerald Pool (Sa Morakot), a hot spring tucked away in a thick forest. The main spring has become famous for its turquoise color, and is as good for a relaxing swim as it is photogenic. Take a hike through the area to enjoy the lush woods, and consider arranging for a guide to show you around and point out all the animals that call this edenic landscape home. Make sure to explore as much of the area as possible: plenty of more secluded pools are hiding off the beaten track.

  • We had a beautiful visit at the emerald pool where we had it all to ourselves. The water was very clear and beautiful but sadly swimming was prohibited due to covid-19 and the "blue pool" was closed.....  more »

  • So awesome place with clear water of blue colour many people like to swim in the pool. It's very beautiful pool to take some nice pictures while swimming. Kids will enjoy a lot in water it's not so deep just about 5.2feet so anyone can get into pool to have bath.
  • Nice place to visit, but on a weekday. Also, preferable that you visit in the morning. It gets crowded later on. Entry fee of 200 THB per person. Requires walking anywhere between 800m to 1.4 km depending on the path you choose. The pool itself is pretty rocky underneath, so it'd be better if you carry water shoes along. The pool does live up to it's name though. There's also smaller pools in the vicinity, the prominent one being the Blue Pool, which is a delight to behold.
