#theoldpicturestory Khao Khanap Nam, Krabi in 1964.

Khao Khanap Nam is located in Pak Nam Subdistrict, Mueang District, Krabi. It looks like two horns flanked on either side of the Krabi River, which is the origin of the name “Khao Khanap Nam”.

As it is located in front of Krabi town, Khao Khanap Nam is like a symbol of the city and has become a memorable picture for tourists, including those who have passed by here until now.

Khao Khanap Nam has a cave that you can go to see. There is a cement staircase for easy walking. Inside the cave, there are beautiful stalactites and stalagmites. There is a simulation of the life of ancient humans and coloured paintings on the cave walls because there is evidence that this area was once inhabited by prehistoric humans. It also simulates the lives of Japanese soldiers when using Khao Khanap Nam as a command centre in World War 2 as well.

In addition, there is a display of the skeletons of a giant that was strapped by a serpent skeleton according to a local legend. It is the work of art from the “Thailand Biennale Krabi 2018” that is another highlight.

Getting to Khao Khanap Nam: You can take a boat from the Chao Fa Pier (Lan Pu Dam), a distance of 5 kilometres, which takes about 15 minutes. You can see the integrity of the mangrove forest and various animals; such as, the monkey’s foot fish, etc. along the way because this area is brackish water.
