Finding thrills and exhilaration around Khao Lak
What comes to mind when you think of a holiday in Thailand? Beaches, temples and markets? Well there's more to Thailand than meets the eye, and now is the perfect time to come to Khao Lak and try some of the lesser mentioned activities. Here's just a few activities on offer in Khao Lak to get out and get active:
Explore a jungle paradise by paddle power! Just one hour from Khao Lak lies a site of breathtaking beauty, the massive Chiew Laan Lake. Actually a man-made dam, you'd be forgiven for thinking this dramatic and serene landscape had been here for thousands of years. Limestone cliffs and pillars jutt from this 165 square kilometer lake, and as you row silently past you'll feel like you're on the set of a fantasy movie!
Love adventure? So do we. Forget your beer and sunscreen and come into the hills for a change of pace. The rainy season has filled the local rivers and this makes for some exciting rapids. Climb aboard a white water raft under the care of experienced local guides for an unforgettable adventure. While exciting, this activity is very safe and fun for kids and adults!
Chances are you're pretty tired after lying in the sun all day, so why not take a refreshing shower - with an elephant! A nearby Elephant camp offers rides through the jungle on the back of these friendly giants, and you can show your appreciation to your hosts by bathing and feeding them afterwards. Fun and photo opportunities for all the family.
