Khao Sok National Park, Surat Thani

#1 of 15 in Things to do in Surat Thani
Trek through the dramatic scenery of Khao Sok National Park, one of the oldest rainforests in the world and the wettest spot in Thailand. Jagged rock formations extend 300-600 m (984-1,969 ft) upward from Cheow Lan Lake with luscious green vegetation clinging to their sides and waterfalls tumbling from them. Elephants, tigers, tapirs, deer, boars, bears, gibbons, macaques, and many more wild animals roam the jungle (some 5 percent of the world's species in total). Take a boat across the lake, and follow winding trails that crisscross the park as you admire the bounteous flora and fauna. Flash floods, leeches, and slippery ground make the wet season significantly more dangerous, but some may wish to risk the hazards for the increased likelihood of spotting the big animals who become more active during this period.

  • Khao Sok National Park Corso National Day Walking Day Is out at the 8:30 a.m. shop, arriving at the entrance to the Caso National Public Park at 9:00 a.m., ticketing for adults 300, children under 14 years old 150, the walk is very primitive, to go back a total of six kilometers, you can walk on your own, you can also hire a person. We have a way to explain the whole process and help find things, and we're very lucky to see the macaques, the eye monkeys, the lizards, and a lot of Kun, and we'll take a break in a waterfall while walking, with a section, and it's really nice to drink cold-cold-sin waterfalls. It means that less than 10% of the guests here are from the United States, most of whom are beautiful people, and if you have an interest in exploring the forest, you can add a full-day or even night camping trip. The rainy season comes with occasional rain but is more difficult than clear, the whole dry season is very dry, have more endurance to do. When we return to the store at 12 noon, we also mean to give a small fee of 100, a trip that is similar to that of a normal friend, but not for young children.

  • What a beautiful park. One of the highlights of Thailand!! You should definitely visit. There are a lot of animals and if you're lucky you can spot them! Monkeys, birds, spiders and snakes. Even elephants!! Tip: do a overnight tour at the lake, it's really beautiful and at night it's do dark you can see millions of stars.
  • Great place but no one speaks any language here. You just can't get informed by any chance. I paid entrance ticket late afternoon, which was supposed to be valid for 24 hours but already early in the morning they asked me to pay again. no communication with those guys whatsoever. They pointed me someone whoo speaks English but "hello and thank you" was all be could say
