Thailand Elephants

Limestone Lake Rainforest Tours offers a great selection of adventure travel packages in & around Khao Sok National Park in Southern Thailand.

This spectacular location consists of emerald green lakes & rivers, towering limestone cliffs & lush tropical rainforest. One of Thailand’s best kept secrets, Khao Sok is home to a variety of unique flora & fauna. Choose from a selection of jungle hikes, elephant treks, caving, canoeing, boating, treehouse & floating rafthouse accommodation & more.

In addition to our selection of rainforest adventure packages, we can also custom design a tour to meet your individual needs. Each of our trips can be tailored to suit your interests, budget, dates & other requirements as necessary. Our trips are suitable for individuals, families or groups.

One of our most popular tours is the Rainforest Retreat, a 4 day/3 night adventure tour of Khao Sok & Chieow Laan Lake:

Four days and three nights of jungle adventure. You’ll spend two nights at Arts Riverview Lodge in a unique canopy treehouse, then one night at the floating rafthouses of Chieow Laan Lake. Experience the breathtaking beauty of this rainforest oasis.

On arrival at Arts Riverview Lodge, you’ll be shown to your private treehouse in the jungle canopy. Time for a bite to eat, then off for some relaxing fun. Your choices today are a gentle glide down the Klong Sok River in an inner tube or a pampering and thoroughly relaxing Thai massage.

The following day, you’ll have time to explore Khao Sok in the manner that suits you best. Your choices include a jungle elephant trek, a guided canoe trip down the Klong Sok River or a guided National Park jungle walk. Free time for the rest of the day before another delicious meal at Art’s welcoming open-air restaurant.

On the third day, you’ll say goodbye to Arts early in the morning, travelling by vehicle then longtail boat to your overnight accommodation - your very own floating rafthouse at Chieow Laan Lake.

Take a quick dip in the the emerald green waters of Chieow Laan lake before enjoying a scrumptious Thai lunch. Then it’s off for a guided jungle walk or canoe trip - the choice is yours. Or maybe you’d prefer to just sit & soak up the atmosphere from the balcony of your floating rafthouse.

In the evening you’ll enjoy a selection of southern Thai specialty foods with just the stars & the sounds of nature as your backdrop.

The next morning board your longtail boat or paddle a canoe in search of wildlife, before returning to the rafthouses for a delicious breakfast. You’ll then have time to relax or do some more sightseeing before lunch, a final swim and a sad goodbye to your temporary oasis. You will return to your starting point by mid-afternoon.

The ‘Rainforest Retreat’ package includes:

- Two nights treehouse accommodation at Arts Riverview Lodge
- All meals (x9 minimum) at Khao Sok and Chieow Laan Lake
- Elephant jungle trek, guided jungle walk or guided canoe trip
- Thai massage or inner tubing trip on the Klong Sok River
- Return transfer from Khao Sok to Chieow Laan Lake
- Overnight trip to Chieow Laan Lake including one night accommodation at the floating rafthouses, boat hire, boat driver, English/Thai speaking guide, guided jungle walk or canoe trip

The Rainforest Retreat Package is priced at 8500 THB per person (for 2-10 persons).

Transfers to and from Khao Sok can also be arranged.

This is just one of our many tour itineraries. For a complete listing of our tours, please visit our website at http://www.limestonelaketours.com

EcoTourism Policies

Environmental Responsibility:

Office based initiatives employed by Limestone Lake Rainforest Tours include:
-paper recycling & reusing
-printer cartridge recycling
-minimal use of printed brochures & other printed material
-pre-trip information sent to clients is sent via email in downloadable format to further reduce paper waste

Our clients are given a pre-trip document which outlines ways travellers can reduce negative impact on the environment in Thailand, and in particular, in Khao Sok National Park, where we operate our tours. Such guidelines include reducing water usage, minimising damage to flora and fauna in the National Park and respecting the environment in general.

In addition, when visiting the lake, our travellers have the opportunity to meet the park rangers who take care of the area and who reside at the floating rafthouses where our clients either visit or stay overnight. During these trips our guides inform travellers about the impact of poaching of wildlife and flora within the park and how the park rangers attempt to minimise this type of activity.

Economic Responsibility:

Limestone Lake Rainforest Tours only utilise the services of local, licenced guides who have worked in the Khao Sok and Chieow Laan Lake area for a minimum of five years. In addition, several of our guides have previously worked in the Khao Sok National Park as park rangers.

In an further effort to create jobs and bring money into the local communities we visit, Limestone Lake Rainforest Tours utilise the services of operators who source their food and other equipment from local businesses whenever possible.

Social Responsibility:

Our tours are designed for individual travellers, families or small groups travelling together. We do not offer large group travel. This provides for more intimate and direct interaction between the traveller & the local guides and people in the communities we visit and avoids ‘over-running’ the destinations we visit.
