We self drive into the park which was easy to find. Had to pay THB10 each for each occupant inside the car, and another further THB300 each to trek into the jungle. The treks are clearly marked, and are safe with a combination of concrete and natural walking paths. It is definitely not suitable for persons with walking/climbing issues. Do... More

We took a 2D1N tour which includes the lake visit, stay at rafthouse, trekking to the waterfalls and a cave. The view is breathtaking, to wake up to hear and see nature at your door steps, and then to go on boat ride out to see these gigantic ancient forests on these limestone mountains shrouded in mist was something amazing....

We booked a tour with one night at the floating rooms. The landscapes are beautiful and exactly like shown in brochures. We were deep in national park, more than one hour with the long tail boat. Included was a trekking for a few hours and a safari and visiting a cave. Our guide, don't know his name but he had... More

Went to Khao Sok for a weekend. We thought the hiking trails and lake were in the same area, but turns out they're about 70km up the road from each other. We did have a really nice hike though. The first part of the trail you can access without a guide and it ends at a restaurant next to the... More

Came to Cheown lan lake (Ratchaprapa dam) with shared van from Suratthani, and took shared longtail boat drive which was wonderful. Driver took us to restaurant near Guilin viewpoint (avoid this awful place, dirty and outdated). Unfortunately when we came back, transportation to Ban Ta Khun was limited — only taxi drivers with shocking prices (800 baht for 10 minute... More

After a week of scuba diving, my girlfriend and I wanted to do some land-based activities and Khao Sok was the perfect place for it. We stayed at Smiley Bungalows, beautiful houses built on stilts with jungle all around us. Amazingly, there were fewer mosquitoes here than in the city! The lack of air conditioning wasn't too bad - the... More

Most beautiful National park I have ever been to so far, and I have been to quit some. The park insanely old and very well protected. It has some amazing jungle parts. In order to see more of that jungle and to go deeper into it I would advice to take a two day trip which is very well worth... More

Impressive. Simple trekking, waterfalls, monkeys (not guaranteed), tubing in the river (everybody likes this), beautiful tour to the lake. The coral cave is not very interesting.
