Private Tour | 4-days/3-nights wildlife tour in Khao Sok Lake

We don't offer this guided tour until further notice.

Situated between Khao Sok National Park and Khlong Saeng Wildlife Sanctuary, Cheow Lan Lake has one of the most beautiful scenic views in Thailand.

Why?

If you are more interested in a hiking oriented wildlife experience far from touristy and comfortable areas of Cheow Lan Lake, this is the tour for you.

What?

Klong Yee and Klong Ya are two of the most remote tributaries of the Cheow Lan Lake at Khlong Saeng Wildlife Sanctuary. While the tour is more hiking and wildlife oriented, a 4-days wildlife tour also includes safari visiting a number of scenic areas and attractions.

The only option for stay is in rustic bungalows with no a/c. The quality of stay is very basic.

While wildlife sighting is not guaranteed, possible sightings on the trails and long-tail boat safaris are gibbons, hornbills, langurs, long-tailed macaques. With a bit of luck also sambar deers, wild boars, gaurs, elephants may be seen. The area has a rich fauna of birds, amphibians and reptiles.
