Home to the oldest evergreen rainforest in the world, the stunning landscapes of Khao Sok National Park are eternally covered in rich green vegetation. Tall limestone mountains tower above the treeline and peaceful lakes at the foot of deep valleys interrupt the endless green, making this a spectacular place to explore. 

Overview

Not far from the major attractions of Phuket, Khao Lak and Krabi in the south of Thailand, Khao Sok National Park offers a refreshing respite to those that have tired of lounging on the beach all day and are in search of something a little more exciting. Canoeing and hiking are popular here, with an abundance of wildlife to spot. Believed to be over 160 million years old, the rainforest is home to monkeys, wild elephants, monitor lizards, and an array of fascinating birdlife including a number of hornbill species. If you are extremely lucky, you may even glimpse a Malaysian Sun Bear. 

How to see it with Kuoni

Accessible from Khao Lak, Phuket and Krabi, stay in a number of beautiul properties before heading out on an excursion to this remarkable national park.

Independent travel options

Although you can visit Khao Sok National Park on a day trip, you can opt to stay overnight at Cheow Larn Lake where you can stay amid the treetops in a treehouse, or out on the lake itself in one of several raft houses. Most of the accommodation here is very basic, although there are a limited number of more luxurious options available. 

Good to know

The best time of year to visit Khao Sok National Park is during the dry season (December to April), as the wet season (June to October) can bring flash flooding, making the trails slippery and dangerous. The wet season also sees the resident leech population become more lively.
