Nature Tours in Phuket, Khao Sok & Khao Lak
Elephant Trekking, Safari, Jungles
Nature Tours are becoming popular in a big way. To some extent, it's not so surprising as much of Thailand is still relatively wild and has a lot to offer when it comes to exploring and discovering the wonders of nature. This is especially true in the Phuket, Khao Sok and Khao Lak regions, with a number of nature reserves and national parks located in the area.
Lumbering through the jungle on the back of a swaying elephant is an unforgettable experience, as is a tree adventure tour. Even more exhilarating is bamboo rafting downstream during the rainy season, observing the jungle wildlife. For the more active visitor to these regions, high adventure beckons.
About Khao Lak
Located in the mainland province of Phang Nga just north of Phuket Island, Khao Lak has only recently been "discovered." The area, visited by only a few tourists, stretches across three national parks and offers nature lovers an unspoilt tropical landscape of beaches, hills, mountains, forested valleys, mangroves and estuaries.
Take a trek on an elephant, go down the river on a bamboo raft, walk through the forest and get close to nature in this magical place.
About Khao Sok
Just a 90 minute drive from Phuket Island, in the mainland province of Phang Nga, lies Khao Sok National Park. This area of outstanding natural beauty, has spectacular limestone mountains, cliffs, caves, rivers, and waterfalls.
Much of the forest is still intact and home to a huge variety of tropical birds, animals, insects, reptiles and plant life. You can go trekking or rafting for the day, or for a real experience of the jungle, why not stay overnight?
