Fantastic day that we would really recommend. The scenery is stunning and the day varied. We started out exploring the wider lake in a longtail boat. After mooring, we took at short hike on a path through Jungle. We had suitable footwear but some others arriving in flip flops were able to borrow something more appropriate. The hike was a little bit up and down plus quite slippy in parts due to heavy rain earlier - it was no problem for our 18 year old but a little bit more challenging for the over 50s! We saw monkeys and heard gibbons. We walked to pick up a bamboo raft to go to some caves which had lots of rock formations, stalactites and stalagmites. We returned by raft and a hike to the longtail boat and then went on to a floating restaurant for lunch. The lunch was a banquet to share and was tasty. Vegetarian options were provided. After lunch we were able to kayak on the lake or swim in the restaurant's pool. The location was stunning and tranquil.

This trip was one of the highlights of our trip through Thailand. From the moment we were picked up at our hotel we were treated very well. The crew is super cool and my compliments for the enthusiasm and knowledge that everyone has for the jungle. They are small groups and a lot of thought is given to what you want to see as a customer. The food was also very tasty and the accommodation was also in a prime location. You have to keep in mind that you get the real wildlife experience, buy leech socks for the hike and make sure you have sturdy shoes and a waterproof bag. We also expected that it would be a kind of safari, like in Africa. But because the forests are sheltered, the chance that you will see an animal is very small. We have seen an elephant, monkeys, birds and many impressive insects. The wildlife is also amazing. My compliments to the staff and I would definitely recommend this to anyone! Greetings from Bart and Loes

Great day trip! Guide was knowledgeable, informative, personable, and energetic. Highly recommend doing this trip with 500 Rai Resort.

Had an amazing time! Khao sok is beautiful, 500rai is stunning and we also really enjoyed the trek to Coral cave.

Everything went according to plan. The guide was very nice and we had a great time. Always my pleasure.
