KHAO SOK NATIONAL PARK TOURS.
Khao Sok is perfectly situated on the mainland between Phuket, Krabi, Khao Lak, and Koh Samui, the most popular destinations in Southern Thailand. It is a fantastic place to go on vacation. Close and personal elephant encounters, jungle trekking on foot, canoeing and Truck Safaris are all possible activities, which will give you the experience of a lifetime. We also recommend tours to visit various locations in Khao Sok.
Khao Sok Lake is locally known as Cheow Larn Lake (occasionally spelt Cheow Lan Lake – without the ‘r’). It is a stunning place to visit, lying in an ancient rainforest, and is the location of some of the most unique accommodation in Khao Sok including floating hotels.
Khao Sok Lake stretches over an area of 165 km2 within the 739 km2 park. The water is a beautiful emerald color, which further adds to the vibrant greens of the rainforest. The lake is vast and is dotted with over one hundred limestone karsts which jut up from the still water, remnants of what were once mountain peaks.
Since its construction in 1987, Cheow Larn Lake has escaped undisturbed by the pollution that comes with industrialization and has been kept protected by the communities and organizations that value both its beauty, and its function. The lake is also home to a variety of freshwater fish, making it a valuable source of food for the local bird population, which number as many as 311 different species.
