Morakot Pool Sra Morakot whose name means Emerald Pool After my mother passed away 100 days ceremony

, my family went to travel and we choose some place is Sra Morakot I have ever been come once time with my friend and on that occasion we had a navigator and driver skilled for travel so no have a problem but now my driver don't have skill on this road we will travel by ourselves.

First start, we buy a map from Bangjak Oil Station (200 baht) and then start used the map for a point of the compass.

Actually, We see the Sra Morakot signs posted. Oh! We are arrived already. Sra Morakot (Emerald Pool) is located at Klong Thom Distric, Krabi Province This hot spring originates from a warm stream in the lowland forest of Khao Nor Juji which is supposedly Thailand's last piece of virgin and fertile forest. The intensity of the pools turquoise colored water varies according to the light and time of the day so visitors determined to see the real emerald color should plan to visit at dawn or early in the morning. The pool, which can be visited all year round, charges and entrance fee of 20 baht for Khao Phra-Bang Khram Nature Reserve / Crystal Pool. Our park fees are included in the excursion package. To get there, take Highway No. 4 to Klong Thom District, then turn left to Route No. 4038 to Lam Hap Sub-district. The Emerald pool is located along the way, with clear signs posted. Moreover, there is Sra Morakot which is a rectangular pool, 115 metres long, 214 metres wide, and 3.50 metres deep, the radiant water is about 1.2 meters deep, with the total area of about 25 Rai. Sra Morakot have 2 ways for select, We are select first way total distance is 800 metres. After walking a short nature trail for ten minutes, It's a very easy we reached the emerald pool

When we come ! "Why don't we go swimming immediately ?" .... After we swam just a few minutes, we not yet to stop swimming because of cool winter and foreigners from anywhere joined with us to drive and swim. The swim provides a great way to relax and relieve our tired body Please be careful when you are walking on the edges of the pool. It is very slippery because of high calcium carbonate deposits. After our refreshing swim in the emerald pool, we proceeded to another way for go back because we would like to see the forest, actually this way far more than first way is about 1.2 kilometers but we don't to be tried because this forest It's wonderful feeling of warm spring and we bought something from the members of a community for support them. The emerald pool had a notices is "Don't take all food bring to here" Although a egg "Don't take it also". I think It's very well for help to keep clean of place because I have never found garbage anymore.

Sra Morakot a feel anymore Even though the water of Sra Morakot is crystal clear, it is not suitable for drinking due to its high calcium carbonate content which can cause gallstone. The calcium carbonate (CaCO2) from the spring water of Sra Morakot is deposited more on the edges of the pool than in the bottom. This is because the carbon dioxide (CO2) from the carbonic acid solution (H2CO3) in the spring water vaporizes better along the edges of the pool than in the bottom. Along the slopes leading down to the pool where there is water seepage from the ground, calcium carbonate is also deposited, producing a soft, slippery form. Bacteria and algae in the water, along with the water temperature, determines the colour of the water of Sra Morakot. Where the water temperature is high, the water is greenish blue; where the temperature is lower, it is pale green. Visitors are advised not to use detergent, shampoos and soap when bathing in Sra Morakot, as these substances may affect the algae and the colour of the water of Sra Morakot.
