             Thailand’s Khao Sok National Park


I spent a few weeks with local fishermen in Thailand Khao Sok National Park. Here is some text that describes the experience good.



The Wonderous National Park


The Khao Sok National Park contains Thailand’s largest virgin forest and is older and more diverse than the Amazon jungles of South America. Stretching across 739 square kilometers, it is estimated to contain over 5% of the worlds species – only 30% of which have been identified!


Known for it’s dramatic teeth-like towering limestone cliffs, breathtaking waterfalls, colorful wildlife and easy route access, Khao Sok National Park has been a favorite Southern Thailand destination since it’s inception in 1980. Breezy and beautiful most of the year, the weather is influenced by monsoon winds from both the Indian and Pacific Oceans.

Often referred to as “the wettest spot in Thailand,” the glorious lowland jungle of the Khao Sok National Park is Teaming with life of immense biodiversity and the curious colors of the many indigenous creatures, the park offers a multitude of well-worn dirt trails to explore. Rainy season begins in late April and lasts until December, with the heaviest rains between May and July, then October and November. But don’t let that stop you! The rain is often a welcome respite to the tropical heat. Not to mention the fact that … it is the RAINforest!


Some of the many wild animals found in the Khao Sok National Park include: Malayan Tapirs, Asian Elephants, Tigers, Leopards, Sambar and Barking Deers, Bears, Guars, Bantengs, Serows, Wild Boars, Pig Tailed Macaques, Langurs, White-handed Gibbons, Squirrels, Muntjacs, Woodpeckers and Hornbills
