It was part of a sightseeing of phuket. We walked until get tired. After the Gibbon, you need to walk a little far distance to see the waterfalls. It was amazing.

We have enjoyed visiting the GRP, as it was a different experience away from the tourism in Phuket. The waterfall and area around was great and it is recommended for those visiting Phuket.

This is an excellent project which is informative, explaining how they have rescued different Gibbon's from private ownership. They try if possible to return the Gibbon to the wild but, if like some they have been illegally imported this is not possible! You can see...More

200 baht to enter the Falls - but this does not go the the Grc - they rely on donations - before lunch is when they are more active and noisiest.
