Are you traveling to Southern Thailand? A trip to Cheow Lan Lake, also known as Khao Sok Lake is a must! It is located 45km from Khlong Sok village. The famous Khao Sok Lake is situated in the center of Southern Thailand. It is well situated between the party islands of the Gulf like Koh Samui and the pristine beaches of the Andaman coast such as Khao Lak. If you take a lake tour, you will be rewarded with fairy-tale scenery and jungle wildlife. You will also enjoy the peace and quiet that comes from a remote location.
In 1982, the Ratchaprapa dam was completed in the south-western corner of Khao Sok National Park. This was the birth of Cheow Lan Lake. This resulted in the evacuation and relocation of hundreds of local people. It also stranded thousands of animals. Since then the lake has become a major tourism destination. It is renowned for its spectacular karst scenery featuring towering limestone cliffs. The park is now renowned as one of Thailand’s’ best wildlife spotting opportunities.
