National park KhaoSok
A unique trip in one of the oldest jungles in South East Asia.
One of the nature heritage sites in Thailand, excellent experiences in virgin nature. From the safety of your boats or kayaks, you can explore the heart of the jungle, watching Macaques, Gibbons, HornBills and other kinds of birds. In this area live wild pigs, bears, water buffalo and many different species of fish, snakes and reptiles. This area is one of the last areas in Thailandwhere the wild elephants are still living in their natural habitat.
The accommodation is in floating houses/bungalows where the water is a safe and natural barrier against the insects, snakes, lizards and other non welcome guests.
One of the best ways to spend a couple of days in the middle of the tropical rain forest. From the airport, train station or centre of Surattani or from DonSak or Koh Phangan we transport you in to the KhaoSok national Park
RADJAPRAPPADAM is a dam with a very high water level.
This lake/dam covers an area of 2348 hectares and is surrounded by lime stone cliffs which in some points are over 800 metres above the water level. Approximately 40 years ago a wall was built which put the water level up by 10-15 metres. Over the years the water has filled up many canyons and valleys and the whole lake has turned into a very nice maze of bays and steep rock walls which crown from the jungle and water in many different shades of green.
After a sightseeing tour by boat we provide accommodation in floating bungalows/houses.
Usually the houses are connected by floating, wooden walkways which will lead to the centrally located restaurant.
In the morning, just after you wake up, you can start your day by swimming in warm, crystal clear water.
The most popular program includes a walk/trek through the jungle and caves which are in this area. Kayaking trips, observing the wildlife and nature, are available at anytime during your stay. The whole area is strict National Park, and the visit is only possible with a tour guide.
The number of visitors is strictly regulated; approximately 400 guests allowed each night.
V.I.P. offer: 3 days/2 nights
