Best jungle trek Hike Up To
KRAISORN VIEW POINT
One of the best views you can get in Cheow Lan Lake is at Kri Sorn Viewpoint, located on top of a vertical limestone mountain where you will be able to have a panoramic view of the beautiful glistering blue water of Cheow Lan Lake and its surroundings.
To hike to Kri Sorn Viewpoint, you must ensure your tour will take you there. Usually, a tour that stays longer than one night will allow you to visit Kri Sorn Viewpoint, but confirm it with Khao Sok Travel before booking.
The hike's difficulty is moderate, with a nice 1.5-hour slightly uphill hike until you reach the base of the peak, and then you will have to scramble up the steep mountain face for about 30 minutes before you arrive at the top. The last part is tricky and extremely tiring, but the moment you see the view, all your tiredness will evaporate.
From this viewpoint, you will be able to see the true scale of Cheow Lan lake and why it is considered to be one of the most beautiful places in Thailand. You can see the lake branching out in between limestone mountains like a lightning as well as floating bungalows and other long-tail boats dotted the blue-colored water. It is an incredible sight to see and one that is worth every sweat.
