Khao Sok National Park (pronounced kʰǎw sòk) is in Surat Thani province next to Nakhon Si Thammarat.

Finally

It seem to be a lot of location to trekking in Thailand. The most trails are in National Park. Provider trekking in National Park running by the forestry officer and walking trail is making and organize by goverment. You will have contact by your own and booking in advance. The tourist have to prepare foods, water and more things by your own. Please request for the staffs, they should be speaking English.

It’s not popular for foreign tourists and I don’t like to trekking in National Park. I love to doing with the local people or villager where we walk in the real nature path by our management that it seem to be we have a freedom from many rules. We are not breaking the law but we will preserve the nature by the way they are.

Just only some area in northern being independent. Recommended trekking area in Chiang Dao (a district in the north Chiang Mai province) that is very nice forest. And if you have more days and planning a big trip, trekking in Mae Hong Som would be better. You can contact any travel agency that you found on internet or booking here.

Most tourist do trekking and adventure activities in the north because the price is fairly well and save money while traveling and then when move to south for the last 2 weeks remaining, you only stay on the beach and spending a time enjoy the sea sun sand.
