How to choose a Khao Sok National Park resort
When you are searching for places to stay in Khao Sok Thailand, you will find a variety of options. You will also find that some resorts are near the entrance to the park and within the boundaries of Klong Sok village. However, other resorts are located in the the forests and orchards that surround the village. What they nearly all have in common is some proximity to the Sok River.
The Sok River provides a relaxing outlook when wining and dining but also provides some of the best local activities. To start, enjoy a guided canoe tour or get even more wet while tubing in rubber rings. All manner of jungle wildlife gathers at the river. Leaf monkeys and many tropical birds perch on tree branches, while frogs and fish inhabit the water. Further upstream in the park, some of our largest friends, the Khao Sok elephants, cannot exist without regular access to water. Thus, they enjoy cooling down, cleaning and just having fun in the river.
The river changes quite a bit at different times of the year. For example, in the wet season the banks are full and perfect for “tubing” on rubber rings. On the other hand, in the drier seasons it is much calmer and more suitable to a relaxing dip.
Accommodation Khao Sok National Park
Most people journeying here are drawn to the wildlife, hiking and adventures available in the national park. While hiking normally starts from the park headquarters, most other activities originate elsewhere. Canoeing starts at one of the many bridges crossing the Sok River. On the other hand, Cheow Lan lake tours to the floating bungalows start an hours drive to the east at Rajaprabha Dam. When choosing where to stay in Khao Sok, look for the rooms and resort grounds the most appeal to you. Riverside Cottages has plenty of shuttles to get you to the park and a variety of nearby highlights.
If you are looking for places to stay inside Khao Sok national park itself, you are limited to either jungle camping or heading to one of the floating bungalow facilities. Camping requires a private tour, whereas visitors wanting a Khao Sok Lake tour can join a group.
Cheow Lan Lake
It is fair to say that a visit to the Cheow Lan lake will be at the top of your list of things to do. The scenery is almost beyond belief. For example, limestone karst cliffs rise sheer from the deep clear waters of the mighty Cheow Lan. Longtail boats cruise around ferrying people to the floating bungalows and ranger stations that populate the lake. To be sure, it is an experience never to be forgotten. We will be able to take care of all your arrangements when you arrive at Riverside Cottages. Either book a package in advance or talk to our friendly, knowledgeable and efficient staff. Therefore, they love to show off their neighborhood and are proud to be part of this amazing adventure.
