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 were told we would be picked up at our hotel at 06:30. On the evening before the tour, we were informed by phone that we would be picked up at 6:00 a.m. So we were ready in the lobby at 6 a.m. the next morning. At 6:30 a.m., when no one picked us up, we called. The lady on the phone apologized and apparently the car was "defective". But we were probably forgotten… . We were picked up at 7:00 a.m.... It started an hour late. Arrived in the national park we were warmly welcomed. Our tour guide was great and it ended up being a great trip. Food was good too, lake and cave too.

I loved everything about this trip and it was such a breath-taking place to visit. The van that picked us up was comfortable, the boat ride was super scenic, we had staff attending to our needs, the guide was super knowledgeable about caves, lunch was delicious and the resort 500Rai was just so relaxing. I really enjoyed the trek and soon after jumping into the cool emerald water for a swim. This was the highlight of our Khao Lak trip.
