Cheow Lan Lake
Cheow Lan Lake in Khao Sok National Park is the secret gem of Southern Thailand; reportedly more people visit Phang Nga Bay in a week than Cheow Lan Lake in a year, making it an ideal location for people wanting to get away from the crowds.
Cheow Lan Lake is a beautiful body of water of 165sqm set amongst tropical green jungle and dramatic limestone cliffs. The lake was formed in 1982 by a power company who built Ratchapraba dam which flooded a large area of the National Park. The result is what you see today – magical scenery and fascinating wildlife. Cheow Lan Lake is the main attraction of Khao Sok National Park, it is often referred to as the “Gui-lin” of Thailand due to its similarities with the famous Gui-lin in China.
The lake can offer various activities for day trips, overnight stays in a bamboo floating hut or a few days away exploring the jungle, trekking, kayaking, relaxing and even diving the lake; in fact this place is so intriguing that one could easily spend a week here.
As well as visiting and inspecting the stunning limestone facades propping up the lake, this is the best place for wildlife lovers and especially bird watchers. In Cheow Lan Lake there are frequent sightings of eagles, ospreys and hornbills and if you are really lucky you will see gibbons, langures, macaques or even wild elephants! The list of wild mammals inhabiting Khao Sok includes Malayan Tapir, Asian Elephant, Tiger, Sambar Deer, Bear, Guar, Banteng, Serow, Wild Boar, Pig Tailed Macaque, Langur, White handed Gibbon, Squirrel, Muntjak and Mouse Deer.
