Natural Splendour

For an example of a real jungle safari, join this experience deep into Khao Sok National Park. Canoe,
walk and explore the huge variety of flora and fauna that can be found here in one
of the world’s oldest rainforests. A fantastic region to explore!

WHY THIS TOUR?

As an alternative to the beach scene of the South, Khao Sok National Park offers 738 sq-km of lowland jungle that is home to diverse wildlife including bears, gibbons, elephants and tigers. The park dates back 160 million years and contains one of the planet’s oldest rainforests.

Khao Sok is additionally famous for its limestone mountains – in most of the region, ground level is about 200 metres above sea level. It is all above and more that laid the foundation for our ecological exploration of Khao Sok where family-friendly adventure and surreal landscapes appear around every jungle corner.

TRAIL ITINERARY

An Inundation in Khao Sok’s Natural Splendour

07:00 - 19:00

No other place in southern Thailand can rival the natural scenery in the Khao Sok jungle thus a full day of 12 hours may only give you and your travel companions an idea about the extensiveness of this national park. One of the reasons we leave early from your resort on Phuket at around 7 am and drive via the Sarasin Bridge to the Thai mainland and further towards the entrance of Khao Sok National Park. Khao Sok is also famous for its limestone or karst mountains. The tallest peak in the National Park is 960 metres in height. En route, you may see some of these amazing formations dotted at the horizon, creating a surreal, natural skyline.

The tour heads across the causeway that runs through the Phang-Nga province, passing a scenic landscape of rubber plantations and small village communities on the way to Khao Sok. The morning commences with a leisurely hike through the dense jungle where the flora and fauna of this national park are shown up close for 3 hours. We end the morning, fully refreshed and enriched with new impressions, at our lunch address.

In the afternoon, it is canoeing time, led by experienced national park guides. No paddling needed as these guides will do it for you, so you can keep your eyes open for any animals while enjoying the solitude and scenery. Birds and animals such as kingfisher, heron, egret and even wild monkeys live in this area. The canoe tour ends with watching Khao Sok from one of the best viewing points before making our way down to a renowned hot spring. Easing the day away with access to natural resources, ranging from foot spa to complete body relaxation treatment, complements this day out and about.

At the end of the journey, it is time to say bye to our generous hosts and we head back via the same way we arrived to Phuket and your hotels. We expect to arrive in the early evening at your home, far away from home.
