This activity is not made for everybody. I wouldn't recommend it if your shape and health are not very good because once in the forest you will be on your own, in fact not alone but if something happens you will be obliged to do the way back by yourself, there is no medical helicopter in Koh Chang and you will have to reach the road first to get help.

But don't be scared, nothing has never happened in the forest.

There are 2 types of treks, the short one of 3 to 5 hours and the long one which will last a full day.
I have experienced the short one and believe me it wasn't a piece of cake and those 4 hours seemed to be endless.

The most difficult are the heat, the humidity and the climbing to the top of mountains. And I don't talk about the mosquitoes and the different creatures you can meet. That's why I don't recommend this activity to everybody, your heart beat may go quite high and you will sweat a lot, more than you can imagine.

But there are plenty of good and interesting sides to do this trek. First you will discover an environment you have maybe never seen. Then your guide will show you plants you didn't even know, see and listen wild animals and insects. You may cross tarantulas and if you are lucky… or unlucky you may see few snakes. Pythons, King Cobras and Rat Snakes are also living in Koh Chang. But animal lovers will enjoy watching beautiful birds, monkeys, mongoose, wild pigs and other small mammals. It's not like being in a zoo, those animals are wild and it can be sometimes very difficult to see them.

The guides have a big experience, they will supply you mosquito repellents as well as water. Some of them can also propose you walking shoes but if you have your own take them with you, your feet will thank you. Take extra water with you, you will sweat a lot! 

I really recommend you Mr. Toon from Jungle Fever. Toon can organise different type of treks as well as a bird watching tours for the animals lovers. If you need more information you can contact him from his webpage or send me a Facebook message or email and I will connect you to him!

Maybe during the trek you will say "why I didn't choose the snorkelling trip?", back at your resort you will be completely exhausted but you will get an unforgettable experience. Believe me!
