There seems to be two spellings for these caves one being Khanab and one being Khanap. The only way to reach these caves are by hiring a Longtail Boat at the Krabi Towns Chao Fa Pier and the trip takes about 15 minutes. You disembark at a wooden pier and there is a paved pathway which runs through mangroves up to the entrance of the Eco Park. Regarded as the symbol of Krabi, Khao Khanab Nam are two karsts that are roughly 100 meters tall, separated by the Maenam Krabi River (Shortest River in Thailand) and which are located at the entrance to Krabi Town. The caves are found at the base of the right hand karst and has the same name. The Eco park has some interesting formations with one looking exactly like a skull. The caves are located high above ground level and there is a man made staggered staircase which gives access to the caves. There are large stalactites and stalagmites to be found within the caves in addition to exhibits of Japanese soldiers and equipment (These caves were used during the war as a base) and also some of the archaeological finds and cave paintings that have been discovered here from ancient settlements. A large number of human skeletons have been found in these caves and it is thought that they are the remains of people who lived here at one time but were cut of by flooding and perished. This trip can be combined with a visit by boat to the adjacent mangrove forests where there is abundant bird life and macaque monkeys and the Ko Klang fishing village where one can see, feed and hold turtles and puffer fish. Fishing in the estuary can also be arranged. An interesting worthwhile half day visit
