Tours

Montania Lifestyle Hotel offers a variety of trips to discover the beautiful Khao Sok National Park. Every activity starts directly from the Hotel and can be booked at short term at the reception.

Khao Sok National Park is one of the most beautiful national parks in Thailand. The park has a general topographic composition of Limestone Mountains. The highest peak to reside in the park measures at 961 m. above sea level. The area in which the park is located contains highly acidic, sandy soil that is easily eroded during rainstorms.

The village Khao Sok is located in the entrance of the National Park (about 60 kilmoeters west of the dam) and continues to build more resorts to increase its capacity to visit this jungle region. The access to the lake at Ratchaprabha dam is further south-east in the Ban Ta Khun distinct, reachable on highway 401 approximately half way between Khao Sok and Surat Thani. The dam is the only place from where the lake is accessible by boat. Around the reservoir different “Floating Bungalows” accommodate tourist from all over the world. Each located in their own sort of bay, the bungalows float on rafts docked to land.

Tips

In a forest, we will never know what are hiding inside so we should prepare ourselves when going to trek as following.

  • Check the temperature before setting out; trekking in very hot weather can cause sickness.
  • It is very important to take plenty of water with you and drink it often.
  • For the daytime, trekkers are recommended to wear long pants and a long-sleeved cotton shirt and long socks to preclude scratches and cuts, and a hat and sunglasses to prevent strong sunlight.
  • A light jacket should be taken by trekkers because it will get colder quickly in the forest when night comes.
  • To prevent leeches, rub socks and legs with a mixture of salt and tobacco. If getting sucked, try to remove them with salt, vinegar, alcohol, tobacco juice or a lighted cigarette.
  • To prevent yourself from malaria, consult a doctor for the right prophylactic before taking a trip.
  • Do take a basic medical kit with you if planning to trek for several days.

The Jungle is great to experience nature and enjoy being in the bush. Remember the jungle isn’t good or bad it just is.

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather is, always bring your own sunshine.

Please be friendly to our nature and environment
