Thailand Escapes & Hideaways

Jungle Lodge

The mountain and water scenery depicted in old Chinese scrolls actually exists at Khao Sok National Park. The Jungle Lodge faces a clear brook and majestic limestones cliffs.

From Jungle Lodge, you can trek into a rain forest Khao Sok National Park which is one of Thailand's best preserved habitats for tropical vegetation and wildlife. The Thai rain forest is benign with few mosquitoes or other predators.

Many consider  Khao Sok to be one of the most beautiful national parks in Thailand. The pristine, moist evergreen forest abounds with wildlife and fascinating plants. The park provides an adventure for botanists, environmentalists, naturalists or anyone interested in exploring plant and wildlife in a rain forest. The Jungle Lodge sits on the Khao Sok River on the edge of the park, but within walking distance.

As you probably already know, Khao Sok National Park is a rain forest. Thus, rains fall throughout the year. However, from June through November, the rains can be especially heavy. Some park walks are closed, but you can still enjoy a memorable stay in the forest. You can float through this majestic landscape in a canoe or inner tubes, tour a nearby lake, take elephant treks, and many other interesting excursions.
