Cheow Lan Lake Trip (Day Trip)

One of Khao Sok National Park’s hidden gems, Cheow Lan Lake is a pristine body of water where natural beauty abounds. Also known as Ratchaprabha Dam, it spans an incredible 165 km² and is the heart and soul of the jungle.

A popular tourist attraction, the lake delivers a number of options for travellers who want to explore its inviting waters. Day trips allow ample time to explore the water’s wonders; visit a raft house (Khao Sok National Park’s famous floating bungalows) where you will have time to swim and relax, or rent a kayak and explore the lake’s beautiful surroundings. In addition, travellers can trek around the lake’s peripheries along local trails to discover hidden waterfalls and caves.

Cheow Lan Lake redefines natural beauty and has to be seen to be believed. Overnight stays are also available.
