What people are saying about Khao Sok National Park

Fantastic day that we would really recommend. The scenery is stunning and the day varied. We started out exploring the wider lake in a longtail boat. After mooring, we took at short hike on a path through Jungle. We had suitable footwear but some others arriving in flip flops were able to borrow something more appropriate. The hike was a little bit up and down plus quite slippy in parts due to heavy rain earlier - it was no problem for our 18 year old but a little bit more challenging for the over 50s! We saw monkeys and heard gibbons. We walked to pick up a bamboo raft to go to some caves which had lots of rock formations, stalactites and stalagmites. We returned by raft and a hike to the longtail boat and then went on to a floating restaurant for lunch. The lunch was a banquet to share and was tasty. Vegetarian options were provided. After lunch we were able to kayak on the lake or swim in the restaurant's pool. The location was stunning and tranquil.

We went here in August and had an amazing day. Jammed packed with well organised activities. Our driver spoke excellent English and was more than helpful and happy to talk to us about living in Thailand. Although people we met were welcoming. The elephant encounter really touched our hearts. They are well cared for here and being able give them a mud bath was such a precious experience. This memory is mine forever! We would definitely book again.

Extremely helpful and knowledgeable guide Wonderful personal experience with the elephants and excellent treatment of them Monkeys were a bonus experience Food at lunch and cooking demonstrations fantastic Highly recommend for all travellers young and old. A great day out and very memorable
