If you think of going, make the extra effort and book a two or more days trips in to the jungle (bungalows and camping trips available). You could get an experience without a night but it is exponentially better to spend some time in the...More

Loved this park and the raft houses on the lake! We stayed at Our Jungle House raft houses. Highly recommended. We also visited one of the many waterfalls, hiking this waterfall was one of the highlights of our trip. 👌🏽

We were so worried about leeches and other wild animals. But the trail wee was marked clearly and even wide enough to take our baby stroller about 2.5 km. Playing in the river close to the park entrance was also a highlight of the day...More

Sometimes the photos of these places don't live up to the real thing. Here, it defiantly lived up to my expectations. I had a double bed room with on-suit perched on the side of a cliff overlooking a river and mountain range. Plus, the wild...More

Hello We have never left Europe and usually do typical Spanish holidays. With my husbands 50th in April he wants to go somewhere with some culture and has chosen Thailand. I’m struggling knowing where to start but one thing I do know is that we all would love to go somewhere like Elephant Hills in Khao Sak. But it’s dreadfully expensive. We don’t and won’t go anywhere where the elephants are not looked after in a positive and loving way. Does anybody know if you can go to see the elephants in Ele Hills without paying their extreme costs? Or are there other lovely places we can go to,for a few days, to experience the National Park and maybe see some other animals including elephants. Must be kind to the animals. Do not wish to see animals chained up. Hope you can help. Thanks. Karen ps if you fancy helping me plan my first real trip, feel free to offer advice on resorts too ! Thinking of Khao Sak?
