Itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Khao Sok!
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.  We'll pick you up from one of several possible locations and drive to Anurak Community Lodge. Anurak Community Lodge 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, 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 while respecting local culture. A traditional Thai dinner will be served in the lodge restaurant in the evening. The rest of the day is free for you to relax and let the day’s experience sink in.

Meals: Dinner
Accommodation: Anurak Community Lodge in a Deluxe Bungalow
Transportation: Krabi, Phuket Airport (HKT), Khao Lak, or Surat Thani to Anurak Community Lodge by Car or Van


Day 2: Cheow Lan Lake
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 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 these 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.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Accommodation: Keeree Thara in a Bungalow w/Fan


Day 3: Cheow Lan Lake
Rise before breakfast to board a long tail boat for a morning mist wildlife safari. From your boat you may see macaque monkeys, dusty languor, great hornbills, wild boars, gibbon monkeys, and, if you're lucky, a wild elephant! 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. You will go by long tail boat back to the pier through the magical landscape. Once you reach the pier, you'll drive back to Anurak Community Lodge and you're free to continue to your next destination.
