Khao Sok National Park Discovery
Stop and listen for a moment. It’s the gibbon monkeys calling from the tall treetops early in the morning. It’s the sound of quietness as the mist slowly lifts itself from the limestone cliffs. The sound of a happy elephant as you feed it homemade treats. And it’s the sound of water splashing as you jump into the clear water of Cheow Lan Lake. Khao Sok National Park is all about beauty and magic moments, dense green jungle and raft house living on the lake. It’s for kids and their parents. It’s for you who want to experience wildlife up close, feel the nature and escape the crowds, yet, who want’s to stay in comfort while doing it. It’s for you who want a taste of Thailand beyond the ordinary.
A trip for parents and their children to experience the National Park together.

Day 1: Arrive in Khao Sok National Park. Bath and feed an elephant. Enjoy the peace and tranquility.
Khao Sok National Park is one of the oldest rainforests in the world and home to the man-made Cheow Lan Lake. It is conveniently located in Southern Thailand, between the two coasts, and in the morning you will transfer from either Surat Thani or Khao Lak to Anurak Community Lodge. It is on the edge of Khao Sok National Park, surrounded by breathtaking limestone cliffs, hovering high above the ancient forests. Take your time to settle in, enjoy the jungle surroundings and the charm of your community lodge.
In the late afternoon go for a true and sustainable elephant experience. You will spend time preparing elephant food to feed an old elephant. You will have opportunity to bathe it and spend time with the elephant and mahout (elephant care taker). By taking part in this low impact experience we support the elephants and contribute to their ethical upkeep.
A traditional Thai dinner will be served in the lodge restaurant around 18:00 and the rest of the evening is free to relax and let the day’s experience sink in.

Day 2: Full day at the Cheow Lan Lake, swim in the lake and explore the surroundings.
Wake up to the sound of birds singing and gibbons calling from the treetops. Have breakfast in the early morning as the mist slowly lifts itself from the mountains. You will spend the coming day and night at Cheow Lan Lake – without a doubt one of the most strikingly beautiful places in Thailand! With over 100 little islets and towering limestone cliffs, a full day lake tour gives you not only the opportunity to marvel at the magnificent ‘fairy-tale’ like scenery, but also to spot wild life in their natural habitat.
Upon arrival at the Rajaprabha Dam you will board a long tail boat and head deep into a remote corner of the lake. Surrounding you is the giant limestone cliffs, green rainforest, and bold trees rising from the water surface.
Around noon, you will arrive at the raft house, and the rest of the day is all about relaxation in amazingly beautiful surroundings. Either go for a swim, borrow a kayak and explore the many paths and canals of Khao Sok Lake, or just relax and sunbathe while enjoying the beautiful nature.
You will experience spectacular views, incredible atmosphere and natural scenery in front of you, which many travelers compare to Ha Long Bay in northern Vietnam. Be sure to be at the raft house as the sun sets over the lake, and enjoy a Thai dinner and the quietness of the lake while stars sparkle above you

Back at the raft house, enjoy a traditional Thai breakfast and a bit of free time to swim and relax. Around noon you will check out from your raft house, have lunch and prepare to return to dry land.
