    The description mentions you will go in a cave but doesn’t mention you will be wading in water potentially up to neck height. The trek through the cave it almost 1km also. It was great fun!

I really recommend this activity for a day in the national park! This is the opportunity to take advantage of it to 1000% through many activities: trekking in the jungle, bamboo rafting to visit a cave, boat to discover the park, swimming pool also to relax at the end of the day and canoe if we want it. We had a great guide Miss Pooky, who made us enjoy a great day! Thanks again !

Lovely day in Khao Sok: hike in the rainforest with a skilled and sympathetic local guide, boat trip on the stunningly beautiful Ratchaprapha Lake ... and then a swim in the lake after a long hot day - wow!

Excellent varied day, doing things you will probably do once in your lifetime. Anyone worried about being on the rafts, don’t...the waters only up to your knees if you fell in.

Very exciting tour with funny guide, we had a lot of fun! 5 star absolutely recommended!
