Phuket/Surat Thani - Khao Sok National Park
You will be met by your guide and vehicle at your hotel in Surat Thani or Phuket. Then you will travel by road to Khao Sok National Park, which is a journey of just over two hours by car. On arrival at the park, you will board a motorboat for the scenic river journey to your bungalow accommodation, located in the national park. The gentle river cruise will last for about ninety minutes. Along the way you may be lucky enough to spot some of the park’s wildlife. The scenery along the way is dramatically beautiful, with towering limestone karst cliffs and dense rainforest. Check in to your accommodation and embark on your first paddling excursion through the park. You are likely to see dusky langurs, hornbills, gibbons and macaque monkeys. Early the next morning, head out to do some bird watching and wildlife spotting at a time when Gibbons make their strange morning calls. Spend the rest of the day on the kayaking on the tranquil reservoir, returning to the bungalows for lunch and a rest during the hottest part of the day.

Day 3- 4
Khao Sok National Park Phuket/Surat Thani
Early in the next morning, head out on your kayak again to continue bird watching and wildlife spotting. On this morning’s paddle you will head to a more remote and inaccessible part of the national park. Later on, enjoy a soft trek along trails which meander through dense rainforest. Marvel at the majestic scenery as the massive limestone cliffs frame the valley. The following day, board a longtail boat for a cruise with the kayaks in tow and head to some of the tallest limestone cliffs in the park. Paddle in the direction of the national park’s dam, stopping to visit an impressive cave along the way. Continue kayaking until you board the longtail boat and head back to the bungalows. At the end of this exciting experience you will be transferred back to either Phuket or Surat Thani for your onward journey.
