2 days hiking in Khao Sok - Hidden jungle and waterfalls

We currently don't take any inquiries for Khao Sok packages until further notice. Please try other web sites.

Why?

Khao Sok National Park is the biggest and most popular protected site in southern Thailand, it has one of oldest evergreen rainforests in the world.

What?

Our 2 days hiking tour in Khao Sok is a private tour, means no others will join you. The tour includes visit to a waterfall and a cave, both along the trails. Despite having a relatively good diversity of wildlife, due to fact that the forests are very dense with little visibility, chances to see wildlife is limited. Saying this, there are still some chances to see stump-tailed macaques, gibbons, deers and boars. Birds, lizards and snakes are quite common everywhere in the park, so you may see few interesting species.

Itinerary

This is an example itinerary, if for various reasons some trails are inaccessible, your guide may take you to different trails.

Day 1 - From 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

We will take you to Ton Kloei trail for a full day hiking. Starting from headquarters, this trail extends 7 km west partly on a dirt road. There are several waterfalls of various size and few swimming spots along the trail.

Day 2 - From 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Today's hiking will start at Bang Hman ranger station 34 km east from headquarters. This nearly 10 km long circular trail includes hiking through a 400 meter long cave where water-stream flows through it. At one point, the water depth will be around belly height, so any electronic equipment you choose to take with you must be carried carefully and at your own risk. Once you reach the other end of the cave, the trail leading back to the forest is occasionally steep.

Towards the end of this trail, if you still have some energy left, the guide may take you to a giant stone arch that has been created by wind and rain driven erosion.

If there has been heavy rain during last few days, your guide won't take you through this cave as the water levels may not allow it, in case you will be taken to other trails through the jungle.
