What people are saying about Khao Sok National Park

A highly recommended tour from start to finish! Both the route through the jungle, the stay at the resort and the safari on the lake will be an unforgettable experience. Everything is super well organized. It far exceeded our expectations, it is one of those places that you must know in your life, yes or yes. My only recommendation to enjoy the experience well is to be aware that the route through the jungle and the Cave is suitable for people with experience in trekking since it has complicated areas and several sections in which you have to cross areas with water of up to 2 meters deep. We were informed before and we were well equipped and we really enjoyed ourselves. There were people who did not and did not digest it the same way. Suitable clothing: Dry bag or backpack (for diving) Trekking sneakers (for the cave) Quick-drying long trekking pants Quick-drying trekking t-shirt Bring a cooler change of clothing and leave it at the hotel, to change later

The trip was well organized and the guide was very nice. The floating resort is a dream. We can only recommend it to everyone. This spot is just gorgeous.

Had an amazing time! Khao sok is beautiful, 500rai is stunning and we also really enjoyed the trek to Coral cave.

The mountains and the lake was fantastic! Our guide was the best! We enjoyed every minute.

This was the highlight of our trip to Southern Thailand. Highly recommend.
