Discover Jungle Medicine Plants
- Full Day
You will be picked up at 09:00 from the hotel and head towards the National Park of Koh Phangan. With its surface of 65km² taking up more than half of the island, this national park is composed of different types of forests with a wide variety of animals, insects and of course a phenomenal range of flora. Your local guide, born on this island, has an innate knowledge of the area as well as the plants he grew up around. Follow him and learn more about a wide variety of uses these plants of the jungle can offer, such as medicinal applications, food preparation, and protection. An interesting titbit is that some leaves are specially used as toilet paper due to their anti-bacterial benefits!
To name a few of the plants, you may come across, the better-known ones such as lemongrass (the most popular natural insect repellent), turmeric roots (anticoagulant, anti-inflammatory and even anti-depressant), galangal roots (skin problems, stomach pain, deworming), and pandan leaves (anti-oxydent, energizer). Among all these, one popular plant that can be found is Eurycome Longifolia, an official name of a kind of plant whose root is used as a health tonic for post-partum recovery as well as the relief of fever, intestinal worms, blood pressure, low sugar, diarrhoea, and indigestion.

So get on this tour, discover the amazing properties of nature and learn how you can integrate these into your diet for the benefit of your health and life! (L)
