About
 Khao Sok National Park

Cheow Larn Lake at Khao Sok National Park

Khao Sok is a National Park created in 1980 covering an area of approximately 793 km. The park consists of dense pristine tropical jungle, limestone karst rock formations, the giant man made Cheow Larn Lake fed by the Sok River, and a wide range of plants, trees and wildlife including the world’s largest flower, the rafflesia, the Malaysian sun bear, clouded leopards and tigers. Khao Sok is also a paradise for bird spotters with kingfishers, crested serpent eagles and the ashy drongo, along with a range of other birds, all resident in the National Park. What, however, makes the Khao Sok National Park so popular is that the isolated interior is accessible by river well beyond where the road stops. Popular activities in the Khao Sok National Park include canoeing, fishing, jungle trekking and elephant rides along the jungle trails.

Khao Sok Paradise Resort

For somewhere excellent place to stay in the Khao Sok National Park we recommend the Khao Sok Paradise Resort, which is a medium priced bungalow resort on the edge of the jungle. The Khao Sok Paradise Resort is a 1.1 km (13 minute) walk from the drop off point for minivan services from Surat Thani and even closer is you ask the minivan driver to drop you by the turning to the resort on the way.
