Being one of Trip Advisors highest rated reviewers, I always use TA to choose my attractions and activities when traveling the world. Thus on my recent trip to southern Thailand, I chose the 3 day package by the Phuket Trekking Club to Khao Sok Nat. Park and its Cheow Lan Lake. It was wonderful beyond words. We elephant trekked in... More

A must do. An afternoon on the lake amongst the limestone mountains is a real memory. The water is purified by the limestone making it almost Crystal clear and a beautiful blue. Go to the floating village for refreshments and feed the fish.. it's amazing... Will certainly do that again.

My first destination in Thailand, khao sok national park makes me feel good and bad at the same time. The nature is great. Some people who work here do it out of love for the nature, others to earn quick money. That's life in Asia I guess. A village which is nothing but hotels, resorts, shops, travel agencies and restaurants... More

In the longtail boat sit in the front for the best view! We had a night in a rafting house! Basically its... More

Our visit to the Park area was a disappointment in many ways: - You can only go to the lake and other areas with a "guide". Unfortunately, these guides are not prepared at all. They are local people without any knowledge about the flora and fauna of the place, its history or the recent changes through the artificial reservoir. Plus:... More

What a stunning place! It's an eyeful of beautiful scenery, from the jungle to the huge karsts jutting out of the deep blue water. The hiking trails are just the right amount of strenuous. Also, Thailand is flush with sandy beaches, but as someone who grew up around fresh water lakes, it was nice to have the opportunity to enjoy... More

Highly recommend never miss to visit it. But I recommend the two days tour with an overnight on the magnificent choew lan lake . Average price is 4200 baht per person including transfer and meals. Excluding 300 baht the national park fee . starting with budisem temple visit then elephant trekking in the jungle. Then it will be lunch and... More

We drove to the pier and grabbed a 'taxi-boat' for half day tour - 1,600. Nice ride and stop over at 'capsule' hotel for a quick bite.. Set menu Thai style for 250each. Very nice tour and beautiful waters!!!

Unfortunately, our late afternoon flight arrival time at Phuket meant we were unable to spend our first night sleeping on the lake as we would have arrived long after dark. So we stayed elsewhere for our first night and then got picked up and taken to the pier from where we clambered aboard a longtail boat for the start of... More
