Hintok River Camp
Hintok River Camp at Hellfire Pass aims for the camp’s guests to live close to nature. Staying in a primitive style of canvas tent accommodation brings people who may have forgotten the first joys of camping. Hintok River Camp at Hellfire Pass was developed to introduce nature to our worldwide guests in the atmosphere of African safari. From July to September 1943, Hintok River Camp was a British Prisoners of War ( PoW ) camp of 300 of whom 79 died working on the infamous Death Railway construction. Today’s camp pays homage to its predecessor in name and theme, by using tents, reminiscent of the PoW’s bell tents, motifs such as railway ties and the guard tower.
The camp site is built with high quality canvas throughout giving the feeling of being surrounded by nature. Hintok River Camp is constructed from local woods and provides all the comforts of a luxury hotel. Each tent is equipped with individually adjustable air-conditioning, an en suite bathroom with hot running water and complimentary toiletries. Furthermore, the comfortable beds and the rustic wooden furniture convey the feeling of pure indulgence.
The tented camp provides a wide variety of outdoor activities. If you prefer to relax, you can do so in the natural spring water pool. Would you rather be active? Try rafting, ride on an elephant, explore the stunning caves in the area or go trekking in the Hellfire pass. Experience the unique culture of Thailand whilst visiting the nearby Mon village and temple or discover the moving past of the Hellfire pass during World War II in the wonderful museum. Back in the camp you can round off this exceptional holiday experience with a BBQ in the moonlight or a cocktail at the bar with the incredible view of the sun setting over the River Kwai.
