Trek through the dramatic scenery of Khao Sok National Park, one of the oldest rainforests in the world and the wettest spot in Thailand. Jagged rock formations extend 300-600 m (984-1,969 ft) upward from Cheow Lan Lake with luscious green vegetation clinging to their sides and waterfalls tumbling from them. Elephants, tigers, tapirs, deer, boars, bears, gibbons, macaques, and many more wild animals roam the jungle (some 5 percent of the world's species in total). Take a boat across the lake, and follow winding trails that crisscross the park as you admire the bounteous flora and fauna. Flash floods, leeches, and slippery ground make the wet season significantly more dangerous, but some may wish to risk the hazards for the increased likelihood of spotting the big animals who become more active during this period.

What a beautiful park. One of the highlights of Thailand!! You should definitely visit. There are a lot of animals and if you're lucky you can spot them! Monkeys, birds, spiders and snakes. Even elephants!! Tip: do a overnight tour at the lake, it's really beautiful and at night it's do dark you can see millions of stars.
Great place but no one speaks any language here. You just can't get informed by any chance. I paid entrance ticket late afternoon, which was supposed to be valid for 24 hours but already early in the morning they asked me to pay again. no communication with those guys whatsoever. They pointed me someone whoo speaks English but "hello and thank you" was all be could say
