4 days, 3 nights – A four hour drive from Phuket or Krabi, Khao Sok is Thailand’s largest lake, artificially made by a hydro-electric dam. We depart from the dam by longtail boat and never see any trace of civilization until we return. Khoa Sok is Wildlife Heaven – with dozens of species of mammals, birds including at least three varieties of hornbills, serow goats, three species of deer and wild elephants. Departures First Sunday of each month. Best wildlife viewing is in the summer rainy season.

Combine our Khao Sok Mini-Expedition with our famous Phang Nga Sea Kayaking Mini-Expedition for an excellent week of Thai mountain and sea adventure. Combine Khao Sok with our 7-Day “Wings of the White Belly Sea Eagle” and you’ve got a complete South Thailand expedition traversing one of the World’s most important “land bridges”.

Khao Sok is famous for wildlife, but most trekking and longtail boat tours are happy to see a footprint or “dropping”. However, Khao Sok’s highland streams and lake are ideal for wildlife sightings with quiet and clean kayaks. Since John explored Khao Sok’s “Natural History by Sea Kayak” in 1989, Thailand’s nature travelers in kayaks have the option of actual wildlife sightings in this high mountain national park.

No other Khao Sok itinerary includes full meal plan, snacks, transfers, camping, full guide service and paddling every day. Silent and environmental kayaks allow you excellent sightings of birds, monkeys, mammals and more than 10 species of snakes. Our lead guides are famous for their in-depth natural history knowledge and guide skills.

Khao Sok is an excellent companion to the 3-day Phang Nga Mini-Expedition and 7-day Wings of the White Belly Sea Eagle expedition.

For Khao Sok’s premier Nature Experience, the minimum is 2 guests, the maximum 10.
