Itinerary

1

Surat Thani – Khao Sok

Surat Thani – Khao Sok (118 km): 1.50 hr

This morning, be picked up from the train station and transfer to one of Thailand’s largest rainforests, Khao Sok National Park. Head towards the Cliff and Jungle, a natural accommodation hidden in lush jungle of Khao Sok.

Upon arrival, check-in and relax for a bit.

Lunch at the lodge.

In the afternoon, start to explore Khao Sok by bicycle.

Cycling has always been one of the best ways to see the countryside and it is certainly the case through Khao Sok National Park. Using high-quality mountain bikes, travel along small country roads and stop at leisure to take photos of the amazing scenery and fascinating wildlife that the guide will point out along the way. Because Anurak Community Lodge is situated in a valley, the route we take is reasonably flat. Observe the awe-inspiring sights of rolling jungles and mountain peaks looming overhead.

Return to the lodge in the late afternoon.

Overnight at Lodge.

Khao Sok

Breakfast at the lodge.

This morning’s program is a great opportunity to get close to some beautiful and gentle giants by feeding and bathing with them. Spend one magical hour feeding and bathing an elephant. This is the least harmful experience for the elephant, and the best way to interact with these majestic animals. By offering this ‘low’ impact experience we support the elephants and contribute to their ethical upkeep. 

Return to lodge between 12:30 and 13:30 for lunch.

After lunch, start with a drive to Khao Sok National Park entrance fee and headquarters. After a short briefing, start hiking up and down the main dirt track in Khao Sok. This track winds through enormous bamboo forest, old growth trees and strangler figs. With a bit of luck, we might see dusky langurs, long-tail macaques, hornbills, small lizards and more.

Then hike at a leisurely pace with a short break from time to time so that anyone reasonably fit can enjoy this hike. From time to time, get off the main track and go down across hiking trails towards the Sok River. If there’s enough water there is a chance to go for a refreshing dip. Keep in mind that the trails are very basic, be prepared to climb occasionally across rocks and tree trunks! At the ranger station at Bang Hua Red, stop for a (cold!) drink (*) to refresh. After this relaxing break, follow the main dirt track back to the park headquarters.

Overnight at Lodge.
