Brief Itinerary

Day 1

07:30 a.m. Pick up from any address in Khao Lak ( or Khao Sok). Drive to Khao Sok National Park. We started our trek at the km99 ranger section in Khao Sok along a small jungle trail for 7 km. (on the rainy season we may use different trails, depending on the weather) to Cheowlarn Lake. The hidden treasure of the jungle you can discover and learn from our professional crews ; edible jungle plants, get to know local flora & fauna, making fire for cooking, and much more. Take a trek through the deep jungle, crossing rivers several times. Explore the surrounding areas ; massive buttress roots & banyan trees are to be discovered, stunning rock formations with caves and grottos to be seen and bamboo forests to be walked. Find yourself in one of the oldest rainforests in Thailand. Our experienced guides & crews are locals of Khao Sok know the area very well and are highly educated in “survival techniques” in the jungle.

First day trek is a distance of about 7-8 km, depending on the location of our camp set-up within the jungle. The first section of the walk is uphill for about 1 hour before it flattens out in the shade of the rainforest. Stop for a lunch break- enjoy your Thai food in the jungle surrounded by nothing but the sound of nature! Continuing the trek deeper into the jungle the trail becomes more covered. Along the trail there are always new things to discover, our guides will show & explain to you the local flora & fauna- from Tarantulas, gliding lizards over edible plants and fruits from the jungle to the tallest trees in the rainforest, growing on sheer limestone rock formations. Impressions and pictures you will never forget.

Watching the time during the trial, setting up the camp in time, setting up needs time and requires preparation- that needs to be done by your help BEFORE the sunset. Setting up the camp with tents & hammocks, finding wood for cooking and campfire, collecting water for cooking, showering, and preparing food need some time. Once everything is set up it’s time to relax and enjoy the atmosphere with the sounds of the jungle and the campfire. After dinner, you can just relax, and experience the night under an incredible sky of stars in the rainforest. Our crews can offer a night safari walk if you are still active.

* There are two optional jungle trails we use for the first day, depending on the weather, and to avoid wild elephant confrontation.

* The hammocks are mosquito-net equipped.

* We provide water filter for additional drinking water in the forest

Day 2

Wake up for a coffee and breakfast jungle-styled. Pack up and clear the campsite our longtail boat which we pre-book will pick us up and drive us to a floating rafthouse. A sightseeing day of "Cheow Lan Lake" and take a boat trip to see its hilights. Have lunch at the raft house and check in to the charming floating bungalows with breathtaking view of the lake.

In the late afternoon, board a boat for sighting landscape under sunset and get a chace to see animals foraging. Our guide and boat man will help you to spot them. Enjoy sunset moment in the nature. Back to the raft house for dinner and spend the night under the stars and enjoy the sound of nature in this truly unique place.
