About this tour

Exploring the breathtaking grandeur on Khao Sok Day Tour, Khao Sok National Park is home to some of the world’s rarest and most exotic flora and fauna, where lush emerald rainforest blankets the
harsh terrain, juxtaposed by towering limestone cliffs that seem to touch the sky! If you’re not a fan of trekking through the jungle, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!
Khao Lak Land Discovery has designed an incredible low-impact Khao Sok full-day tour, perfect for all ages and filled with the park’s greatest wet and wild hits!
Start your day off with a visit to a local morning market to experience a piece of Thai life firsthand. Next, head to Khao Sok, pausing at a breathtaking panoramic viewpoint overlooking an expansive valley to capture a few stunning photos. Then, venture further into the depths of the rainforest, Take a bath with an Elephant in the south of Khao Sok National Park, Then canoe down the Sok River, and visit the Monkey Temple! And the best part? Dig into a delicious lunch at the Rock and Treehouse Resort, exclusive for our guests at Khao Lak Land Discovery. Get ready for an unforgettable day of adventure, relaxation, and natural beauty!


Your friendly driver and guide will pick you up in a comfy air-conditioned minibus at around 8 am in front of your hotel lobby. The pick-up time may vary depending on the location of your hotel, but we confirm the exact time when you book.

On the way to Khao Sok National Park, we make a short stop at the Takua Pa morning market. Markets such as this one are an integral part of the Thai economy, allowing local producers a place to sell the fruits of their labour. The adoption of the farm-to-table concept in the West may be trending these days, but it has always been the primary way that Thai people have shopped for fresh produce and fast food. You will have time to browse the stalls selling fresh produce, meats, seafood, and prepared dishes before we move on to Khao Sok.

Ready for the introduction of a lifetime? It’s time to meet Asia’s largest land animals! We supply you with some of their favourite treats to feed them to break the ice. Then, after you become acquainted with the elephants, get ready to join them in the river for the ultimate elephant pool party! These gentle giants adore splashing around and having a blast in the water, so be sure to pack your swim clothes because you are in for a wet and wild time! A highlight of the itinerary for kids of all ages and sure to bring out the inner child in everyone! If you decide to stand on the river bank to take a few memorable photos, be cautious not to accidentally get sprayed by an elephant's trunk. It's a good idea to bring a waterproof case for your phone or camera if you want to get this close to the action!

A Khao Lak Land Discovery exclusive and an experience in itself, we bring you to dine at the Rock and Treehouse Resort. Tour food can often taste less than stellar, but not today. Today, you will enjoy what could likely be the best food available on any tour in the province. Our highly skilled chefs will prepare a mouthwatering Thai lunch, sure to tease your tastebuds! With a towering limestone cliff as the backdrop to this restaurant oasis, the Rock and Treehouse offers more than just great food and amenities!

Hop into a canoe and let your local paddle guide take you on a relaxing scenic cruise downriver, stopping mid-way for freshly brewed coffee in an eco-friendly wild bamboo cup. Giant monolithic limestone cliffs jutting out of the jungle canopy are a hallmark sight in Khao Sok but make for rugged terrain, which, combined with the density of the rainforest, make many areas impassable by land. Canoeing the Sok River is the perfect way to navigate this mountainous region. Without the need to paddle yourself, you can focus on the lush vegetation that lines the river bank and the limestone cliffs that tower over the jungle canopy, keeping your hands free to capture perfect photographs. Many Khao Sok inhabitants are masters of camouflage and elusion, making them very difficult to spot. The knowledge of the local habitat and its inhabitants, which your guide possesses, is a fantastic resource you can tap to help you spot creatures that you might otherwise miss.

While you may have seen a few species of primates while eating lunch or canoeing down the river, visiting the Monkey Temple is a guaranteed way to get you up close and personal. All over Thailand, animals often seek refuge in the serene and peaceful environment on temple grounds, curious monkeys included. Monkeys are notorious collectors! Therefore, we highly recommend you leave any valuables, such as necklaces and bracelets, inside the minivan to avoid your jewelry becoming part of their collection.

After visiting the monkeys, your driver and guide will return you to your hotel around 5 pm. Please ensure that you take your personal belongings with you when you exit the minibus. It is time to say farewell, and we hope to see you again soon.

If you love elephants 👍

Overall a good day especially a great experience and time spent with the elephants. Unfortunately the tour was spoiled by the speeds at which the driver was travelling, very dangerous and scary (Over 100kph in a 50kph zone and regularly at around 130-140kph on the open road). We could constantly hear the ‘Excessive Speed Alarm’ in the vehicle beeping. It maybe acceptable locally to drive at excessive speeds but not when you are driving a tour bus. Both my wife and myself felt unsafe. Some of the other passengers also commented. Very disappointing.

Interessanter Ausflug

Anders als bei den anderen Ausflügen ist man hier überwiegend mit dem Auto und dem Kanu unterwegs. Da die Beschreibung der Tour erst nach der Tour angepasst wurde, wurden wir mit einem früher Marktbesuch überrascht. Dieser ist klein und sehr günstig. Zum shoppen definitiv besser geeignet als Khao Lak. Danach ging es zu den Elefanten. Das war unserer Highlight und der Grund warum wir die Tour gebucht haben. Die Elefanten sind einfach atemberaubende Tiere. Das Füttern und Baden war einfach nur wunderschön. Im Anschluss ging es auch zu einem Affentempel in der Nähe. Mittagessen gab es bei den Baumhäuser wo auch die Leute die eine 2 Tages Tour gebucht haben ihre Sachen gleich da lassen konnten. Nach dem Mittagessen ging es zur Kanutour wo wir Affen und Schlangen beobachten konnten (keine Angst die Schlangen schlafen in den Bäumen). Danach noch zu einen Aussichtspunkt und dann wieder zurück zu den Baumhäuser und nach Hause. Wer die 2 Tagestour ma hat die Baumhäuser schauen zumindest von außen sehr modern aus. Nur aufpassen, dass die Affen nichts klauen. Alles in allem eine interessante Tour, jedoch hätte ich mit der aktuellen Beschreibung lieber die Khao Sok Lake Tour gebucht, da außer die Elefanten für mich persönlich nichts neues spektakuläres dabei war.
