Khao Sok National Park & Lake Khao Sok (Ratchaprapha Dam)

Located in Surat Thani province, Khao Sok National Park, land area 739 km2, is the largest tropical rain forest in Southern Thailand. It is one of the popular natural attractions among Thai and foreign tourists. Speaking of Khao Sok National Park most people will think of the verdant rain forest abound with local and rare species of flora and fauna. The wild animals found here include Malayan tapir, Asian elephant, tiger, sambar deer, bear, guar, banteng, serow, wild boar, pig tailed macaque, langur, white handed gibbon, mouse deer, etc. The park is also famous for its Bua Phut (rafflesia kerrii), a reddish brown flower that grows within the park area. It is the largest flower found in Thailand, 70-80 cm in diameter. This parasitic plant with fiber-like tissue emerges from the ground like a giant cabbage. It takes about 9 months to grow and its blooming period is only 7 days. The flower blooming season is between May and December.

What shouldn't be missed for a Khao Sok trip is Ratchaprapha Dam or Chiao Lan Dam or Lake Khao Sok. Completed in 1987 the dam serves as the hydroelectric power generator. As a result, it also creates a beautiful gigantic reservoir with a large number of towering limestone mountains and small and large islands which once were limestone peaks. Moss underneath the deep water enhances the emerald green colour of water in the lake making it looks more like sea water. The topography of the lake is similar to that of Guilin in China, hence the reservoir is given the name "Guilin of Thailand".

A one day Khao Sok package tour can be done to appreciate the majestic landscape. But most tourists love to spend a night or two on a raft house floating on the lake. Popular activities for overnight tourists are taking long-tail boat trips to watch the scenery in the early morning and to observe wild animals at night. Swimming, canoeing and fishing are equally interesting. For adventure lovers, you can join a cave expedition. In the nearby area there are a few caves to explore. One is Nam Tha Lu Cave and the other is Pakarang Cave.
