we had a short visit here and were unprepared for the adventure that befell us but thats what I like. Every national park and protected area deserves patronage and, hence I took my family there. We met a young lady who told us to see the nearby water fall so we embarked upon that. Apparently "nearby" is a relative term.... More

When you have had enough shopping, temples and beaches Khao Sok is a great place to go to unwind in spectacular scenery. After arriving by public transport from Ko Samui (took about 5 - 6 hrs) we stayed in the pleasant tourist village of Khao Sok. We then booked an overnight tour (through the guest house) so we could stay... More

Khao Sok National Park covers a range of areas and activities. From my perspective in this review, it pertains to only Rajprapha Dam and the reservoir behind it. Access to the dam is by road only, and it is roughly equidistant from either Surat Thani in the east, or Takuapa in the west, off Route 401 at Phanom. The dam... More

We spent a few hours walking through Khao Sok national park with a local guide. We were followed by a group of monkeys (who showed us their love making skills), we had a swim in a beautiful natural pool and visited a couple of waterfalls. It was all free (guide arranged through hotel) and would recommend anyone to have a... More

If you heading from Phuket to Ko Samui, you must see Khao Sok National Park. If you head towards the main Khao Sok Park entrance, remember to take your swimming stuff, there's a nice cool pool area at the start and end of your walk. Visit at least one of the many waterfalls, really beautiful place. Very quite, remote and... More

Stay overnight at Khao Sok National Park. It was really magical waking up to the sounds of monkeys playing around outside my room. The people were lovely and the place was clean very happy.

I went to stay at Elephant Hills on the 4th June for the two day trip which included a Canoe Safari, Elephant Experience and Jungle Hike with a night in the Tented Accommodation. The entire experience was just fantastic, from the moment we arrived we were treated so well by the wonderful and very friendly staff. The tented accommodation was... More
