Khao Sok National Park

Discover one of the world's most ancient rainforests

Khao Sok National Park Holidays 

Khao Sok National Park contains the largest area of virgin forest in Southern Thailand and is a remnant of a diverse rainforest that dates back further than the Amazon. In addition to exotic flora like the rare Bua Phut flower, this impressive landscape is also home to some awesome animlas - tigers, Sambar deer, bears, wild boars, gibbons, macaques and perhaps most famously, Asian elephants, to name-check but a few.

For some Thai-tourists, the lure of the beach lifestyle proves too strong and a horizontal holiday ensues. And that's great. But for those with a spring in their step and an imagination brimming with adventure, Khao Sok National Park is a welcome escape. A new world of waterfalls, limestone cliffs and misty outcrops awaits, all threaded together by a network of dirt-trails.
