Khao Sok National Park is located in the south of Thailand between Phuket, Krabi and Khao Lak. It is covered by the oldest evergreen forest in the world. This is with out a doubt my favourite national park in Thailand. Here you can do a wide range of activities from elephant trekking, canoeing, treks through the national park and nature walks and even stay in floating bungalows at Rachaprapa Dam.
When I visited Khao Sok I stayed at The Cliff & River Jungle Resort. This place is amazing and I would highly recommend it to anybody planning a trip here. The rooms are set against the back drop of sheer limestone cliffs which off the most amazing view throughout the day. The rooms a very clean and spread out over a large area so it remains nice and peaceful. The resort ha a swimming pool and a very good restaurant. You can also book tours from the staff at the help desk.
The rooms at the resort all come with an en-suite bathroom, a mosquito net, air conditioning and a fridge. Prices start at 2,000 THB per night.
Elephant trekking is just one of the many activities that can be enjoyed in this national park. The help desk at the resort will be more then happy to arrange this for you. A great trip with some spectacular views.
