Khao Sok Lake Adventure Tours

Below is a list of different activities that can be done at Khao Sok Lake while visiting with us.  Certain activities like the morning mist boat ride can be done anywhere on the lake, whereas certain trails are only accessible if you’re staying in the same part of the lake.  
Morning Mist Safari

MORNING MIST SAFARI TOUR

One of our most popular Khao Sok Lake Tours is undoubtedly the Morning Mist Safari. You’ll rise with the sun before breakfast and hop aboard a guided longtail boat for a chance to see the “locals” beginning their daily routine. Gibbons sing their morning song, Macaques feed their young with fresh bananas, even Dusty Langurs catch a bite of breakfast. Add to that the chance to see the Great Hornbill building it’s nest, or the rare Grey-Headed Fish Eagle swooping in, and you’ll begin to understand why getting up early in Khao Sok has it’s advantages!

Coral Cave Tour

CORAL CAVE TOUR

On this exciting excursion, a longtail boat drops you and your guide at the northern tip of Klong Long where the Coral Cave trail begins. After a scenic and simple 45-minute hike through the forest you’ll arrive at a private inner lake known as 500 Rai. From here, a Khao Sok National Park ranger will ferry you (via bamboo raft) to the spectacular 10,000 year-old Coral Cave. Once inside, you’ll wonder at authentic ancient rock formations and immerse yourself in the cavernous interior while your informative guide explains the local geology, pointing out favorite formations. Exploring the Coral Cave is a great family activity and a favorite for children of all ages!

Nam Talu Cave Tour

NAM TALU CAVE TOUR

Take a vigorous trek through the jungle on the breathtaking Nam Talu Cave trail which criss-crosses the river and winds deep into the interior of Khao Sok National Park. Along the way your guide will explain the unique history of the region and it’s cultural significance, pointing out such magnificent creatures as; Jurassic insects, butterflies and rare birds. Next you’ll strap on your headlamps and prepare to get wet, as the hike extends through the “water cave” (dry season only) and soon becomes a dark wonderland. This is an excellent time to view the many nocturnal species that inhabit this cave (from a safe distance of course) and cool yourself in the river as you explore.
