Khao Sok National Park

Khao Sok National Park is a jungle reserve in Southern Thailand. It is one of the most beautiful wildlife reserves in Thailand. Walking is the primary mode of transportation, as the road to the park is only 2 km and the farthest one can walk into the park is about 20 km. Tours can include tubing down the river, caving, kayaking, and zipline riding in the forest canopy. Many tours will include drinks, food, and/or basic accommodation. Ask your guide in advance about dietary concerns (vegetarian or “jeh” for example), if lunch is to be provided for you on the tour. Doing any 2-4 day tour in the national park will easily please any traveler. Your guesthouse can easily help set you up. Choosing a tour that involves at least one night in a floating raft house in the national park lake is an unforgettable experience.

Visit the jungle cave temple. Go hiking in the national park by yourself or by hiring a local guide. The trails inside the park are well marked and there are several waterfalls on the way. From January to February it’s possible to find the world’s biggest flower, the Rafflesia blossom. This is a perfect place for any adventurer to visit.
