Khao Sok resort at Khao Sok Riverside Cottages
Accommodation Khao Sok national park
Khao Sok Thailand
When you are searching for places to stay in Khao Sok national park you will find a variety of different types of Khao Sok lodging. You will also find that accommodation Khao Sok national park is spread out. Some resorts are near the entrance to the park and within the boundaries of Klong Sok village. Others are spread out across the forests and orchards in the sub-district of Khao Sok, Thailand. 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 Khao Sok activities. 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. They enjoy cooling down, cleaning and just having fun in the river.
The river changes quite a bit at different times of the year. 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 to Khao Sok 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. 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. Khao Sok 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 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.
