Khao Sok National Park

After crossing the border, I went to the train station.
I was waiting for more than 2 hours to catch the train and 10 hours journey to get to Surat Thani. Night at surat thani and the day after I took a bus to Khao Sok.

So, I arrive to the Khao Sok National Park!

After looking awhile accommodation around the park entrance, I found Bamboo House ... Cabin with bathroom and fan (fan) 200 THB.

I didn't left the backpack on the floor and I already know a German couple (Oil and Lili) and a Swiss guy (Lucas)!
I went to see the visitor center...

With Oli we chat with Kim (Thai), and we play cards in quite some time ...

The next day Lili and Lucas felt sick. So, Oli and I went for a trekking in to the park.





Then a traditional Thai massage ... and yes, it hurts!
Milk shake to just pass the pain.


At Bamboo House we meet two very nice Danish girls (Julie and Sofie).


Lili and Lucas do not improve, and Julie start to feel bad... they went to the doctor ...
I walk, read and go out to run a little.

In the evening come in a couple from Australia. Chating and join the group till late. Before bed, movie: "Nights Bluberry"

I make a trip to the jungle with elephant (with Danish girls). When we just finished the excursion starts rain a lot ... we were lucky.


In the evening we play cards and chat with toads and Ranes background music.

In the morning I said goodbye and take the road to Kho Samui.

Recommendations
Visit the two parts of the park. I missed the lake and it seems to be excellent.
