The activity planned for today is a boat trip on Cheow Larn Lake. The lake is surrounded by Limestone Mountains and cliffs covered in tropical rainforest that rise up from the shore of the lake and disappear into the far distance. The scenery has been compared to Qualin in China or Halong Bay in Vietnam. Few people know of the lake and even less has visited it. There are over one hundred islands in the lake and it is over 60 km from north to south.  In the 70’s the area was a hide out for communists and students opposing the military dictatorship. We will see some of the spectacular scenery from the boat and have time for a swim depending on the weather. Please bring swimwear and a towel.

Day 11(Wed): Khao Sok - Phuket - Departure                                                 

(B/L/-)

Breakfast before coming face to face with the jungle by exploring it on foot. You have seen it from your canoe on the river but nothing compares to actually walking yourself inside the jungle. It is not an army survival exercise, there are no prizes for the fastest, snakes and spider do not jump out at you, it is just an opportunity to explore the ecology of the rainforest, to see a great variety of exotic plants, tropical hardwood trees with huge roots, orchids, palms, ferns, bamboos, mosses; the variety is unlimited. Birds such as the hornbill live high up above, gibbon can often be heard calling to their mates, a macaque or leaf monkey may be heard swinging through the branches, every day is different but it is truly wonderful to discover the great variety of life forms that co-exists together. This can only by experienced on foot, take it slowly, look, learn and listen then you too will start to discover some of the secrets of the rainforest.

Weather permitting lunch will be served in the rainforest cooked in bamboo, a tradition of jungle explorers for centuries past.

In the afternoon it’s time to return to Elephant Hills, then onward transfer to your hotel or the airport in Phuket (or Krabi, or Khao Lak).
