- Description -


Day 1:

Starting from Suratthani train station (arrival early morning from night train), from Suratthani Airport (plane landing before 9 am – with surcharge) or from Khao Sok Village (between 8:30 and 9 am).

An hour and an half drive takes you to Rachaprabha dam where your guide and your boat captain are waiting for you.

Exploring some of the nicest parts of the lake, the boat takes you to the raft house where you will spend the night.

You may check-in and enjoy your first swim into the crystal clear water of Chiew Larn Lake…

After a palatable Thai lunch, go back to swim, have a nap, use one of the free kayaks to explore the surroundings or just chill out facing the magnificent scenery…

In the afternoon, your guide takes you into the evergreen forest:

You go by long tail boat until the start of a trail. After 30 minutes walk you reach 500 Rai Lake, a smaller lake. There, you find a bamboo raft that takes you to the entrance of Coral Cave. After the visit, you go back by the same way to the main lake where your long-tail boat is waiting for you.

On the way back to the raft house enjoy the scenery with the lights changing while your guide scans the shores to detect any wild life to observe around. Long tail macaques, pig tail macaques, dusky leaf-monkey, gibbons, monitor lizards, horn bills, eagles are the more commonly seen. Back just before night-time to the raft house.

A fish from the lake, a good curry and some other delectable Thai dishes are waiting for you for diner.

Overnight on a raft house.


Day 2:

After an early wake up and a quick coffee, departure at 7:00 for a morning safari by boat along the shores.

Back at the raft house, your breakfast is waiting for you.

Free time until lunch.

[If there is a minimum of 4 people joining the tour, you may have a 2 hours nice trek in the pristine rain forest in the morning].
