About Khao Sok area

Khao Sok is one of the most ancient and pristine rainforests on Earth. It preserves an overwhelming biodiversity and some of the rarest flowers. It hosts, for instance, the rafflesia, known as the biggest flower in the world.

Khao Sok’s native population has learnt to live and thrive in this wild, yet extremely rich environment by handing down their knowledge on plants, animals and climate generation after generation, while improving their techniques and tools as global civilization changed.

Now, when the environmental health of our planet is in serious decline, Khao Sok represents a timeless oasis where you can feel the contact with Mother Nature. A place where you can still feel human.

Gaarawé is located on the banks of the beautiful Khao-Sok river, immersed in a mystical valley surrounded by white limestone peaks and dense forest. From our village, the views are spectacular and imposing in every direction.

Only few kilometers away from Gaarawé you can access both, Khlong Phanom and Khao Sok National Park. The latter is known worldwide as one of the most beautiful National Parks in Thailand.
