If you’re craving for some nature-driven adventure, Khao Lak, Thailand is home to a wealth of wild jungles, rugged mountains, and crystal clear waters that you can explore. In particular, Khao Sok National Park is an exceptional destination with its unspoiled, verdant jungles housing exotic animals that roam around the dense safari and limestone cliffs. Sitting atop turquoise waters is the largest protected area in Khao Lak, making it the island’s most beautiful, best-kept secret. Here’s why it’s worth including in your itinerary:
Khao Sok National Park shows a breathtaking, panoramic view of paradise with its evergreen islands, towering limestone cliffs, and remote areas where floating bungalows rest along the tranquil waters. The jungles feature over 1,500 species of bamboo and a wealth of rafflesia, one of the largest flowers in the world. The only way to visit a hundred islands and access the floating bungalow resorts is with a traditional Thai longtail boat that you can ride on by taking on a full-day Khao Sok Lake Tour. Part of the package includes a gastronomic feast on a floating restaurant with a beautiful view and a thrilling hike to an ancient bat cave.
A visit to the zoo allows you to view exotic animals, but there’s nothing more magical than seeing them out in the wild. With that in mind, Khao Sok National Park features diverse wildlife like hornbills, white-tailed eagles, macaques, gibbons, and elephants. You can get up close and personal with the gentle giants by visiting the Elephant Retirement Sanctuary. You can meet Somboon, a 54-year-old rescue animal that happily resides with his family out in the open. The sanctuary offers a unique experience where you can feed and bathe with the magnificent creatures.
The national park looks picture-perfect under the sun, but it takes on a worldly appeal at night. If you’re curious as to what kind of nocturnal creatures inhabit the jungles at night, you can venture into the dark wilderness by taking on a night safari tour! An expert guide will tag along and show you the best spots to view the park’s most extraordinary fauna - from the world’s smallest deer, a civet cat, tarantulas hidden in glowing caves, slow loris, and other mysterious critters lurking in the night.
From discovering heart-pumping activities to relishing the relaxing, tranquil natural landscapes, Khao Sok National Park is the place for those who want to immerse themselves in the rich culture and enjoy a unique experience with local, wildlife.
