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 had a great tour with our guide Keng. Great hike through the national park with many animals (monkeys, snakes, spiders, lizards) that Keng showed us all. Lunch was great and there was more than enough choice. The raft ride with fresh coffee/tea was great. This was freshly prepared on a fireplace in the middle of the river.

Authentic experience with a local guide who speaks good English. I would say this trek trip is moderate to extreme level depending how far you go and the weather. Would recommend for fit people only as it can be dangerous if you're unfit.

Fantastic tour into the deep jungle! The guide was such a great person. He even made us nice hand made souvenirs and let us get high with him with his kratom

Everything went according to plan. The guide was very nice and we had a great time. Always my pleasure.
