The oldest jungle in the World – bathing elephants, canoeing on Sok River and refreshment at the beautiful waterfall
Do you feel like exploring the wild jungle and being not-enough-prepared for that at the same time? That’s great! You don’t need to be Tarzan to spend an exciting day in the jungle, to get close to elephants nor to walk through the real rain forest. Moreover, you’ll get a chance of taking a bath with these huge Huggies as well as feeding them with bananas. After that, you’ll enjoy the beautiful nature of Khao Sok National Park while canoeing on Sok river: between the giant rocks, in the middle of lush greenery. And the last but not least: short hike through the jungle will take you to the most magnificent waterfall you’ve ever seen in your life so far. Sounds boring? Feel free to take a cold shower in the waterfall (although, leave your soap in a hotel room!), massage your back or get pedicure like a fish-spa! This kind of experience is great for everybody, no matter what age or body shape you are (children are more than welcome to join us).
You’ll get a chance to explore the oldest jungle in the World: Khao Sok National Park is over 180 million years old! It’s most aged than the age of dinosaurs. How cool is that?
We’ll spend some time in the river on bathing elephants, hugging and cuddling them as well. We don’t like nor support the places where people are riding elephants: that’s a painful, inhumane and very egoistic way of enjoying these animals. Metal benches, which is all day long attached to their backs, cause wounds, abrasions and degeneration of joint – that’s definitely not the way we want elephants to feel like! Instead, you get a brush and bucket and for another while, you’ll be massaging and scrubbing bodies of these lazy and cute giants using only water and mud.
