Khao Sok National Park

Located midway between the southern peninsula’s two coasts and hence easily accessible from Khao Lak, Phuket and Surat Thani, the stunning jungle-clad karsts and glittering waters of the giant Cheow Lan Lake make the 738 sq km Khao Sok National Park a magical rainforest experience for nature lovers. There are a multitude of ways to explore this incredible region, from hiking through one of the world’s oldest rainforests, gently gliding downriver river on a canoe looking for wildlife, birdwatching, whizzing across Cheow Lan Lake with its spectacular 100 islands and majestic limestone cliffs by long-tail boat, swimming and kayaking in the lake, participating in an intimate elephant project or simply enjoying a tasty southern Thai lunch in a local hamlet.
