The pristine jungle, limestone karst hills and beautiful Raijaprapa lake with its many islands are not to be missed. We took a long tail boat to one of the islands then trekked to a cave filled with eerie stalactites. There are a number of raft houses to stop off for a meal, swimming or kayaking. A night safari with a... More

I've only just come back from Thailand, and my last place to visit was Khao Sok national park. I was lucky enough to find accommodation at Jungalows 'Monkey Mansion' which made my stay a complete success. Bastian and his crew are always available to give advice, to find the best guide for your trekking, to organise the lake trip for... More

Not far from the place we stayed overnight our driver stopped and we saw canoes waiting near the road. The local guide carried the canoe down to the water and off we were. There was not much communication possible as we do not speak Thai and the guides' English was (very) poor. Nevertheless we were able to communicate and he... More

By taking an over night trip onto the lake you can really get a feeling for the seclusion of this place. The floating huts we stayed in were a very basic, but awaking to the sound of the calling gibbons and seeing the mist slowly rising from the lake made this trip worthwhile. The food was plentiful and very tasty,... More

This is one of the most scenic places in the country. It is often compared to Guilin in China due to its karstic mountains, rivers and lakes. There are many activities to ve done: canoeing down the Sok River, boating over the lake, elephant trekking or simply jungle hike with a guide. This is the oldest rainforest in the world.

It's really a difderent experience in Thailand then the famous luxury beaches. It's a peacefull area, full of vegetation and wildlife. Nothing to worry about, however. There are numerous tours offered with guides, which ensure a safe positive experience through the wild. You can choose relaxing easy activities, even masage, or extreme loving in the forest, survival for 2 weeks.... More

Arrived to the floating bungalows after 1 hour and 30 minuts on the boat, we really are at middle of the jungle, we can hear the gibbons here and overthere... We explored... More
