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.

We had an amazing 2-day tour experience! We can't overstate how much it exceeded our expectations! We ended up seeing every single thing that was promised, and so much more including tons of animals and birds. Our guide was excellent and knew the answers to all our questions. We ate great food and the tour was adjusted to accommodate the types of things we wanted to see. We would recommend this tour to everyone!

Local partner – We're happy to read your positive review. That's what we are doing it for, to make the guests have a great time. You are always welcome to return ;-)

Booking this tour was a great decision. It was so easy and so much fun. We were picked up at our hostel in Pak Chong and driven to the park. It was just us and our guide/driver. We got to see every inch of Khao Yai, run after gibbons, spot different birds, and even do a night safari where we saw elephants! We felt very safe and taken care of- great value and the passion of our guide (Tata) only made it better. Thank so much- we will definitely be recommending to any friends heading that way!

Local partner – Thanks Laura for your kind words!

Tata and Boo were my guides for the day. This trip exceeded my expectations. Tata and Boo knew just were to go to show us various wildlife. I marveled at Tata's skill with bird calls, and really appreciated all that I learned. They both clearly cared about the park and the animals. That shone through. It's not just a job. I will definitely recommend this to others and will name these two for reference.

Local partner – Dear Chanda, Thank you for taking the time to sent us your review. And great to hear our guides did their 'job' well ;-) The passion for the nature and wildlife is the first and most important quality we look for in a guide. The guests will feel that, and it is 'contagious' ;-) Thanks for booking with us!

A really peaceful day in nature. Jay is an excellent interpreter of the wildlife in the park and we so enjoyed the trek. Without a guide it would be very difficult to navigate and to find the animals and birds. One thing that could help to make the trip even more memorable were if Jay's long lens photos were available. I wholeheartedly recommend others to book the tour with Jay and believe it can be adjusted to all levels of interest.

Local partner – Thanks Ralph Paul for your kind words. Glad to hear you had a lovely day!

This is one of the best nature tour I have taken, not only because the animals were gracious enough to greet us. Our guide Tata was excellent. Knowledgeable, friendly, open, and Michel more. Tks Tata for making my last days in Thailand so enjoyable. Hoping to welcome you one day in Vancouver.

Local partner – Thanks Pascaline! Sounds like our guide did a great job again (as always ;-) ). If you ever return to Thailand you know where to find us.

Good morning . We have just returned to the UK after a two week holiday in Thailand , we spent two days one night doing the Kui Buri overnight elephant tour . What an experience it was truly one of the highlights of our holiday! A very professional team give us an insight into the world of wild elephants , the walk on the second day was fantastic. I would like to say a big thank you to all involved. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone wishing to see how the community and wild elephants can live side by side, it was inspirational.

We booked our trip for Kao Yai for friday 24th. Communication during booking was very clear. We asked to do the trip with other people; to reduce the costs, which wasn't a problem. Our guide (Tata or Tantan, don't know how to write it), came to pick us up at our hotel; which was very easy. On our way into the park; we already saw a few makaaks and the great hornbill. We picked up a German couple; they we're really cool. In the morning we went for a 2,5h hike. Tata was really passionate about nature. He was funny; answered questions and said some really interesting cool stuff. He knew the hiding hole of a scorpion; which he triggered and then put on our hands; he had an eye for detail and showed us the birds and the reptiles, etc. We even saw the crocodile in the water! Lunch was really good; where we saw the waterfall. In the afternoon we went on a chase with the car because they were signs that one of the male elephants was spotted; so we actually saw him! Checking a wild elephant; crossed off of our bucket list! Then we went to visit the scenery; which was a beauuuutiful view of the park; were we saw some sort of wild Thai goats that all of the sudden with a lot or noise showed up. The trip was really unforgettable and was one of the highlights of Thailand; I'd recommend it to everybody!!

Local partner – Dear Stefanie & Bieke, Thank you for your kind feedback. We are happy to hear you seem to have had a great experience. Even seen an elephant and the rare Indochinese Serow (the mountain goat). Very lucky for just a one day visit. We will thank our guide Tata in name of you! Thanks!
