Trip to Cheow Lan Lake from Phuket


Cheow Lan Lake: a wonderful tour to Khao Sok National Park from Phuket

Thailand is famous for its snow-white beaches, active nightlife and wild jungle with unique flora and fauna. Khao Sok National Park and Cheow Lan Lake is the most popular place not far from Phuket where tourists can enjoy wildlife.

To see all the beautiful and unique landscapes of the park you will have to leave Phuket at least for a couple of days.

Khao Sok National Park

Khao Sok National Park is a wonderful place for walking, canoeing, and even a night safari. Everyone who wants to see cute monkeys, wild elephants, gibbons and other animals, as well as hundreds of species of birds and insects in their natural habitat, must visit the park. The vast territory of the park is covered with mangrove forests, giant exotic trees, waterfalls, limestone cliffs and caves. Visiting caves is one of the favorite attractions of tourists, because there you can see bats and large spiders. Don’t forget that you can visit caves only during the dry season. During the rainy season, the water level increases and the caves are flooded.

The park has several tourist routes which run through dense thickets, hilly terrain, along streams, rivers, and waterfalls, where you can swim. The park is also famous for its unique flowers of rafflesia with a diameter of about 1 meter. The flower is considered to be the symbol of the park and in order to find it, it is better to walk in the park with the guide.

Cheow Lan Lake There is a unique and very picturesque Cheow Lan Lake at the territory of the national park, a tour to which should be a main point of your trip. This man-made lake was formed in the 1980s after the construction of the dam and hydroelectric power station. It is especially interesting to visit Cheow Lan in the low season, when the water in the lake is clear and you can see fish swim in it. The unique atmosphere of wild nature is safely hidden by jungle thickets and high karst mountains. You will not find hotels or shops on the shores of the lake. The only way to stay for the night is to rent a floating house(raft-houses). Nevertheless, there are a lot of entertainments at the lake: you can go boating or kayaking, swimming, fishing, and diving (in some parts the depth of the lake exceeds 100 meters). How to get there? Khao Sok National Park is located in the province of Surat Thani, 200 kilometers from Phuket. A large Visitor Center and several hotels were built at the entrance to the park, where guests can stay, as it is impossible to explore the entire territory of the park in 1 day. The most convenient way to get to Khao Sok National Park and Cheow Lan Lake is to take a tour, as the park’s territory is quite vast and you will definitely need a transport. The guide will show you all the most interesting places and you will not get lost for sure. During the tour you can also visit several interesting temples, such as the Temple of Wax with the unique wax figures of monks, the Monkey Temple, where you can feed the macaques, the temple of the Black Monk. On the way to the park you will visit the village of elephants, where you can ride elephants and watch the show of little elephants. The guide will show you the best viewpoints overlooking the beautiful mountains and Cheow Lan Lake, where you can take a lot of beautiful photos.
