After exploring Koh Panak we settled to begin a long hop of four miles, leaving as the tour boats were descending with hundreds of kayakers.

Each koh (or island) looks like a shaggy tablecloth at the bottom where erosion has formed so many overhangs.

Each has a different shape and size.

Such unique topography.

This area is part of the Ao Phang-Nga National Park set up in 1981, covering four hundred square kilometres.

Over forty two large and small islands, all shapes and sizes.

Very difficult to judge the heights but each rock soars vertically from the water (four to ten metres below us).
