Thai National Parks

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.

Tata is a very good guide, he know what „farang“ looking for. It was a very good day trip with him. Even havy rain was not bad for our trip. He guide us in the forest, show us interesting animals and places. Even food was good. The night safary with the ranger, I never would do this again. They were not realy interested to show us somthing special. Maybe next time I wanna ask, if Tata can bring us to the bat Cave, think is more interesting than night safari with the rangers. I will come again with this company.

We visited two national park while in Thailand, Khao Yai and Khao Sok. We LOVED them both! At Khao Yai we booked a full day and night safari tour and our guide, Beer, was wonderful! We had so much fun exploring the park with him and learning about the animals we saw. Lunch and dinner were both delicious as well. At Khao Sok we rented a long tail bot for three hours and explored the water. My one recommendation to other would be to get to the pier EARLY. We arrived at 8am and were able to find a boat right away. When we returned at 11am the docks were packed full out people trying to get on boats and ended up having to share with others, whereas we got our own private long tail. Both parks were beautiful in their own way and I hope to return some day!

We arranged the 1.5 jungle tour with Thai National Parks. Communication by mail went very smooth, accurate information and swift replies. The tour operator arranged taxi transport from and back to Bangkok. One was our tourguide for the bat cave . She was very friendly spoke good english and was as enthusiastic as we were to see the bats. We took great pictures and enjoyed talking to her about Thailand and the Thai people. For the next day we had Tata as our guide. He spoke good English and he succeeded in showing us the great hornbills, the different monkeys, snakes, beautiful birds, the crocodile, spiders and a group of elephants with baby elephants. We had fantastic lunch made by local ladies. We enjoyed walking through the real jungle with its wonderful vegetation and animal sounds. Without Tata we would not have seen any animal. We either walked past them and he showed us where to look and ofcourse he knows his way around the huge park so he took us to the right places. It was great to see and feel his passion for nature enjoying the trip himself and being as euphoric about seeing the animals as we were. This was a highlight in our trip to Thailand and we certainly recommend it to everyone!

Hello,

We had a wonderful time in the Khao Yai National Park, due to our friendly guide and the driver. We saw a lot of wild animals in the jungle. We are very happy to have asked for a private one-day tour. Our guide knew so much about the animals, photographing and all aspects of the parc a visitor would like to know.

Our thanks to "Beer" and "Nat" for this life experience!

We wish the team all the best for the future. We also thank for protecting and taking care of the animals in the parc.

Thank you!

Greetings,

Christophe and Isabelle
