TEST YOUR SKILLS ON A WILD ADVENTURE SURVIVING ON THE HEART OF THE JUNGLE
When in Thailand you will find yourself surrounded by wildness and at one point that makes you wonder how would it be to survive there, in the heart of the jungle.
Khao Sok National Park gives you the opportunity to learn the best survival techniques on an incredible adventure, hiking up a mountain and down thought beautiful waterfalls, going thought challenging river crossing, ending the tour with a experience of a lifetime. Get ready to hunt your own dinner, build your bamboo utensils and spend a surprising night in the middle of the rain forest with all the amazing sights nature can offer you.
This tour is offered from different agencies and house guests in Khao Sok. I got it with Evergreen House, I stayed there for couple of nights, the owners, a couple, were super helpful and friendly, the gave us goos disconts on every tour with got there and the bangoloos were clean and cute as can be, also they have a bar/restaurant with good food and lots of Chang for the night!
Anyways for me it was an unforgettable experience. We got Cho as a guide and I totally recommend him! His English is not so good but he was amazing, patient and funny! He tried on every way to communicate with us all the time. We start the hike from somewhere in some road and the first day we went 10 km up the mountain, no water and a thousand leeches sticking to our skin every second haha. Sounds disgusting I know, but trust me, it is worth it!
The way up it’s a bit harsh, there is no river on the way so we had to carry our tent, gear and water all the time under the scorching sun. Cho gave us some coke leafs the chew cuz it gives you energy to keep going! (super bitter leafs). By the went of the hike (on the first day) we reach a beautiful waterfall which we had to go down! Scary at first sight, but well, no options here haha (don’t worry there is a rope to help you not to fall). Hearing the sound of water for the fist time that day was like music for my ears (and for my bleeding leeches legs!). When you got to the end of the waterfall we set our tent and pull of the hooks to catch our dinner! With a fire we cooked rice on the bamboo, grilled fish with curry and bamboo water with our new cups and spoons made of bamboo (serious, is incredible the amount of stuff you can build with this!). We practise our Cups Song for a while, which btw we were teaching for everyone we met on this travel haha and the rest of the night was dark and quiet, only the sound of the forest.
The second day we got up quiet early to start the way down now to the entrance of the park. Half of this path we had already done by ourselfs when we fist got there, still it was terrific. This time we cross the river a couple of times (strong river, be careful with the backpacks!) and stop several time for a bath which was refreshing because it is Thailand, so stupidly hot! At the end Cho congrats us with a noodle and a beer!
Therefore, with this tour you will have your own guide for a unique lesson which you will remember forever. The National Park still has many secrets waiting for you, yet to uncover, hidden in its deep forests, are you up for this?
