Directions to Khao Sok National Park
As the oldest evergreen rainforest in the world, Khao Sok National Park, north of Khao Lak, is a sight to behold. Characterized by limestone monoliths, caves, lakes, valleys, wild animals, unique flora and much more, the park is a one-of-a-kind world of an area of 739 square kilometres to discover and explore. The average height of the limestone karsts area around 400 metres with the tallest peak at 960 metres. Cheow Larn Lake in the centre of the park was formed when Rhajaprabhar Dam was built about 25 years ago to provide water for a hydroelectric power plant. It is about 60 kilometres from north to south and contains more than 100 hundred islands. Many species of wildlife exist in the park as do fauna with Rafflesia, the largest flower in the world, to be found there.
Ecotourism is practiced with many tours available offering opportunities to see the spectacular sights and partake in activities.
