Day 1 Khao Sok National Park

You are picked up at a Phuket hotel or the airport and drive three hours north to Khao Sok National Park. Unload gear at Ratchaprapa Dam and get your first glimpse over the open water of the tall mountains of Khao Sok. From here, access Chiew Lan Lake by taking a long-tail boat towards the park. Travel past gigantic limestone mountains as you make your way deeper into the park towards the secluded raft house. Arrive and settle in for a swim or some relaxation before lunch. 

This afternoon head out on a guided hike to Khao Sok's highest viewpoint! Once back at the raft house the day is yours to hop aboard the kayaks and paddle around the canals close, swim in the cool waters, or just relax. Listen for gibbons calling each other between the islands and look up to spot osprey and other birds. 

Hiking time: 3 hours, Moderate difficulty

Day 2 Khao Sok Hike & Kayak

  • Hotels
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Rise early to the sounds of the jungle and set out for a morning paddle. Mammals and other large animals are more active at dawn and if you are lucky you may spot gaur, elephant, or even wild tigers coming near the water for a morning drink. Return to the station for breakfast and set out on a long-tail boat ride around the lake to a trekking trail. Hop on land and start a hike through the lush jungle. The final stretch of the trail is steep and needs to be climbed, but you are well rewarded at the top with a magnificent view of the lake and surrounding park. Arrive back to the ranger station in time for dinner and storytelling about what was seen during the kayak. Overnight in floating huts tonight.

Hiking time: 2 hours

Day 3 Return Phuket

  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
This morning around sunrise, drop your kayak in the water and set out for a paddle in a small canal nearby. Keep your eyes peeled for signs of animals along the shorelines. Return to the ranger station for breakfast and enjoy the morning free to swim and relax, taking in the scenery.

After lunch, pack everything back up on the long-tail boat and return to the dam and drive back to Phuket airport or a hotel late this afternoon.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
