Care for gentle elephants at an elephant rescue center in the Khao Sok National Park. Interact with your new friends as you help to wash them, and feed them their favorite snacks. Afterward, enjoy a Thai cooking class and a relaxing bamboo rafting adventure.

Start your adventure early with pickup from your hotel in Khao Lak. Enjoy the sights of local life in the southern part of Thailand as you drive to your first stop, the Khao Sok Viewpoint. Enjoy panoramic views over the national park, and a perfect photo opportunity.

Next, visit an elephant sanctuary and meet the friendly giants. Hear about their individual stories and how they were rescued.

Learn how to make a medicinal meal for the elephants from the professional mahout (elephant carer), then bathe the elephants in a fun mud spa. Lastly, feed them from your own hands while taking some charming photos with your new buddies.

From here, head to a local restaurant and learn how to cook authentic Thai food, to be served for your lunch as a delicious southern Thai set lunch.

Then, set off on your next adventure along the peaceful and lush Sok River with bamboo raft paddlers. Admire stunning views of dramatic towering mountains, and maybe catch a glimpse of the various birds, reptiles, wild orchids, and monkeys that call the area home.

Take a well-deserved break on the river banks and enjoy fresh coffee made from bamboo. After your adventurous day, hop back on the van and make your last quick stop at Mea Yai waterfall before transferring back to your hotel.
