Khao Sok National Park is home to a wide variety of waterfalls and caves. Best time to visit waterfalls like Bang Hua Rat and Wing Hin is during the rainy season, however some of them, such as beautiful one-level waterfall Ton Kloi, located 7km from the headquarters, or Tharn Sawan can be very dangerous, as Sok river is at the full force and the jungle can be flooded.
Many mysterious caves are hiding in this virgin jungle, where thousands of bats are living in the dark, with beautiful stalactites and stalagmites growing below. An abundance of choices guarantees your hiking route will make your experience in Khao Sok unique and unforgettable!
