Hiking nature tours in Khao Sok National Park are our specialty. Get close to nature on foot.
We are based in Phuket. Khao Sok National Park is 3 hours north of Phuket.
We do not offer day trips to Khao Sok due to the distance and the fact that the park is so special.
Check out our rave reviews on Trip Advisor.
Khao Sok National Park is one of the absolute best jungle hiking destination in southern Thailand. Khao Sok is part of a largest area of old grown protected area of mountains and jungle, with a 165 square kilometer reservoir. There is plenty of wildlife.. Our knowledge of the wildlife in the jungle in this region is unmatched.
Our goal is to show you the wonders of the natural world without impacting the ecosystems that we visit.
We only offer small group tours. Most of our trips are two to four guests. Our maximum is eight.
Note: Going to Khao Sok is not cheap due to logistics and the price of accommodations. The main reason to go to Khao Sok is the wildlife. If you're interested in jungle and waterfalls, Phang Nga Province is a better option.
Staying in remote floating bungalows in Khao Sok National park, we paddle out to quiet coves and witness the movement of birds and wildlife in their natural environment. You create a bond with nature when you sit still. You absorb the rhythm of life itself.
The floating bungalows are owned and operated by the national park system. They can get rather noisy.
You can participate in a Jungle Survival Course in Khao Sok.
If you want to experience the jungle of southern Thailand, Phang Nga Province costs less to visit, offers camping (it's illegal to camp in Khao Sok), is much closer to Phuket, and the jungle is just as impressive as the jungle in Khao Sok National Park. There are also many stunning creeks and waterfalls in Phang Nga Province.
Contrary to popular belief, Khao Sok is not a true rainforest, but a tropical evergreen forest or tropical monsoonal forest.
If you are into wildlife or scenery photography, Khao Sok is going to make you very happy. With each hour of the day, the changing light brings forth opportunities for amazing photos. We have a lot of really nice wildlife images on our Paddle Asia Pinterest site.
We see wild elephants on many of our trips. Here is a photo of two elephants, an adult and a youngster playing in the water. They didn't seem to mind that we were watching them. We kept our distance, because we didn't want to disturb their playtime. It was a show that we will never forget.
