Here, guests will be able to immerse themselves in the spectacular beauty of our Cheow Lan Lake tour and its surrounds.One of the most exciting Khao Sok National Park tours available.
The life-changing Khao Sok Tour
As you will see when you cross the Sarasin Bridge off Phuket Island, the roads are quiet, there are few tourists, the air is fresh, and the scenery is spectacular! The Khao Sok Lake tour and exploring the surrounding area are definitely worth the journey. We ensure ample opportunities are given to stretch the legs by breaking the journey up with activities and stops on both the trip from Phuket to Khao Sok and on the return back to the mainland.
Below is a sample itinerary and general overview of the places we visit on this trip.
Duration: 12 hours (approximately)
Wat Suwan Kuha Temple
Our tour begins by crossing the Seresin Bridge into Phang Nga Province (the mainland province adjoining Phuket). Here we journey to our first stop, Wat Suwan Kuha Temple. This is an immense natural limestone cave that contains an impressive reclining Buddha within, and is a wonder to behold. Many wild monkeys make the mountains around the cave their home, and seeing these animals in their natural habitat is a favourite moment for many of our guests. We will stop here to stretch our legs and provide you with ample opportunity to take photos or grab a coffee from the local vendors.
Wat Bang Riang Temple
As we travel further into the jungle, the air becomes fresher by the second and we are surrounded by lush mountain greenery. We visit the visually stunning Bang Riang Temple which is located high up in the mountains. A true highlight, this peaceful temple is very pleasing to the eye. A lofty white Pagoda lies outside, with colourful rooms inside depicting Buddha's story in art. The views from the Pagoda area are breathtaking and make for the perfect photo opportunity. Due to the hard-to-reach location of Bang Riang Temple it is not as busy as other popular tourist destinations in the region so you’ll likely have plenty of space to take in the sights. Here, we will find a quiet spot for some breakfast and relaxation time.
Cheow Lan Lake Tour
The highlight of the trip - the unforgettable Cheow Lan Lake. The unique nature of the lake is guaranteed to leave you breathless. Limestone rocks protrude right out from the water, while the water in the lake is both clear and warm. As part of our Cheow Lan Lake tour we will journey around the lake on a local longtail boat, giving you the opportunity to take pictures and soak up its majestic beauty.
Luxury Floating Restaurant
The next stage of our Khao Sok National Park Tours leads to a dining experience at ‘Panvaree The Greenery’, a luxurious floating restaurant. Here, tour guests are able to enjoy a delicious Thai lunch in a unique location that can only be described as incredible.
Relax after lunch at Panvaree The Greenery
After lunch we’ll enjoy leisure time at the floating resort by Swimming or Kayaking around the lake or simply chilling out. Following an afternoon of relaxing we’ll then make the journey back to the mainland where you’ll have plenty of time to look over the photos you have taken and to relive your memories of the day with your fellow travellers.
