About Khao Sok National Park


Khao Sok is one of the most popular national parks in Thailand for foreign visitors. There are several reasons for this.

Tourism in Khao Sok

One reason is that the park is located in the South of Thailand one to two hours drive away from the ferry ports in Donsak, which serve the islands of Koh Phangan and Koh Samui, and a similar distance from popular beach resort areas on the West Coast such as Krabi and Phuket. The other thing that attracts visitors to the park is the large lake at the centre of the National Park, Cheow Larn Lake.

Cheow Larn Lake

Cheow Larn Lake is man made lake which formed behind the Ratchaprapha Dam which was constructed in 1987. Because of the lake Khao Sok National Park is accessible by boat which means that, unlike most other forest reserves in Thailand, the peace and quiet is not disturbed by roads, and visitors do not need to make sweat inducing treks through dense jungle to reach the protected areas where the wild animals and birds congregate. Cheow Larn Lake is also an attraction in itself with fishing, kayaking and floating bungalows available to visitors for a small fee.

Animals, birds and plants in Khao Sok National Park

Khao Sok National Park covers an area of over 793 square kilometres and has an abundance of wildlife and exotic plants, as well as lots of trees. The park has large mammals living wild there, such as tigers, leopards, bears, which you are unlikely to see although may hear their calls at nights and see tracks in the soft earth around the lake. What you will definitely see is a lot of bird life around the lake and if you visit in January or February you may be lucky enough to find the rafflesia, which is the world’s largest flower, in bloom within the forest around the lake.
