Khao Sok National Park in Thailand is, quite simply, nature at
her best. Whether you’re looking for a holiday full of
adventure or one with plenty of time for relaxation, this
stunning rainforest oasis will leave you with a lasting
impression and a desire to return time and time again to this
secret piece of paradise.
Here are just some of the reasons why you should consider Khao
Sok, Thailand as your next holiday destination:
1. Superb Jungle Trekking Trails
Khao Sok National Park is one of the oldest living rainforests
in the world. If you’re looking for pristine hiking trails with
stunning views, great caves, waterfalls, flora and fauna to
explore, then Khao Sok, Thailand will not disappoint.
2. Chieow Laan Lake
Chieow Laan Lake, part of Khao Sok National Park, is 165 sq km
of breathtaking beauty and diversity of nature. A haven for
wildlife, including wild elephants, clouded leopards and even a
small number of tigers, the emerald green waters of the lake
reflect the imposing presence of the limestone karsts which
dominate this region of Thailand.
3. Floating Rafthouses
One of the best reasons to visit Khao Sok is to stay at one of
Chieow Laan Lake’s floating rafthouses. Featured on several
travel shows, this unique style of accommodation will have you
spending the night floating on the gentle waters of the lake.
With just the sounds of the jungle to lull you to sleep, this is
one of the most amazing experiences you’ll ever have.
4. Unique Flora & Fauna
Khao Sok National Park is an ancient rainforest full of unique
flora and fauna including the giant Rafflesia flower, which
blooms just once a year and grows to up to 80cm in diameter. In
addition, the park is home to barking deer, tapir, Asiatic black
bear and Malaysia sunbear.
5. Jungle Canopy Treehouse Accommodation
One of the most popular things to do in Khao Sok is to spend a
night or two high up in a jungle canopy treehouse. Visitors to
Khao Sok repeatedly comment on how magical this experience is
and rightly so. This is ‘getting back to nature’ in real style.
6. Adventure Galore
If it’s adventure you’re after, Khao Sok will not disappoint.
Choose from day or overnight lake tours, explore the caves of
the region, go elephant trekking, have fun canoeing down the
Klong Sok River, or take to one of the many jungle trails. If
your pace is a bit more leisurely, try a relaxing Thai massage,
a guided boat trip or a gentle paddle down the river in an inner
tube. Whatever your age, ability or interest, you’ll find plenty
to keep you happy in Khao Sok.
7. Special Interest Groups
Bird watching, wildlife spotting, canoeing, fishing, caving and
more. Whatever your special interest, Khao Sok will keep you
captivated.
Tempted by a holiday in Khao Sok? Try it – you won’t be
disappointed! Just make sure you pack your favourite camera or
video before you leave, so you can show off your stunning photos
to your friends and family back home.
