Khao Sok National Park, Thailand

khao-sok

Khao Sok National Park situated in Southern Thailand Khao Sok National park consists of the oldest evergreen rainforest in the world, huge limestone khast mountains emerge from the trees with networks of tunnels running throughout.

Khao Sok is situated on Thailand’s mainland between Phuket, Krabi, Khao Lak and Koh Samui, the most popular destinations in southern Thailand. One of the best things about Khao Sok is its lack of popularity, whilst other destinations are brimming with holidays makers Khao Sok is quite and tranquil.

In Khao Sok you have the option to stay in a tree house (a hotel room on stilts!) right by the river and take a tour into the jungle staying over in floating huts on the beautiful lake and go in search of wildlife such as baboons. Waking up to the baboons and bird calls is an incredible experience.

You can even follow the escape route of the communists who fled through the many networks of limestone tunnels wadding through shoulder height water that cuts through the bat and spider infested tunnels. Khao Sok is a must, make the effort to leave the beaches and head for a week or so of adventure.

    For people uneasy about the situation in Thailands capital, let me advice you, stay away from Bngkok!

    Khao Sok National Park is one of the oldest rain forest in Thailand. October to March is the best time to visit Khao Sok National Park
