What people are saying about Khlong Sok

We had a great tour with our guide Keng. Great hike through the national park with many animals (monkeys, snakes, spiders, lizards) that Keng showed us all. Lunch was great and there was more than enough choice. The raft ride with fresh coffee/tea was great. This was freshly prepared on a fireplace in the middle of the river.

Extremely helpful and knowledgeable guide Wonderful personal experience with the elephants and excellent treatment of them Monkeys were a bonus experience Food at lunch and cooking demonstrations fantastic Highly recommend for all travellers young and old. A great day out and very memorable

Authentic experience with a local guide who speaks good English. I would say this trek trip is moderate to extreme level depending how far you go and the weather. Would recommend for fit people only as it can be dangerous if you're unfit.

Brilliant day start to finish! Our tour guide was lovely and went above and beyond during our trip. An amazing experience not to be missed, and great value for money :) 10/10

I Enjoyed the trip with the guide james , thank you so much
