If you are planning a trip to Koh Phangan and the Full Moon Party, you should stay for a longer time on the island. Koh Phangan has many interesting activities and places to visit in addition to the famous party during the full moon. One of these activities is the Challenge Phangan obstacle course in a natural lake in the middle of the jungle. This will be refreshing before or after a full night of partying on the beach.
What is the Full Moon Party?
The Full Moon Party is one of the most popular festivals for tourists and travelers in Asia. Once a month, the island of Koh Phangan fills up with travelers who want to take part in this beach party during the full moon. The main elements of this party are good music, world-class DJs, neon body paint, black lights, dancing, and other activities like the fire jump rope. Most accommodations ask you to stay at least three days, so it will be easy to spend more time than just one night on the island. Fortunately, Koh Phangan is one of the most interesting destinations in Thailand.
What is Challenge Phangan?
Challenge Phangan is water obstacle course that allows you to test your skills in cleverness, agility, and speed. Go with your own flow or challenge your friends to race. Just remember to be careful because extreme sports always have their own dangers. Skilled staff and lifeguards are always ready to assist you at Challenge Phangan, so you can just have fun. We don’t recommend Challenge Phangan if you have been awake for the whole night during the Full Moon Party. It may be a little too tiring. But the day before or two days after the Full Moon Party is perfect for this activity. Make sure you’re rested and hydrated.
Challenge Phangan is normally open from 10 am to 6 pm and a ticket usually costs around 500 Thai Baht. You can stay in the park for the whole day with your ticket. After having fun with the obstacle course, there are kayaks you can normally use free of charge, and you can eat in their restaurant.
