For domestic visitors, travel restrictions and recommendations are beginning to ease, nonetheless are all visitors to Khao Sok National Park required to provide:
- a negative Covid Test result (acquired not longer than 72 hours before entering the park).
- or by providing proof of being fully vaccinated.
Our Jungle Camp can help you arrange the for Khao Sok National Park tours required test prior to entering the park or embarking on an exciting Cheow Lan Lake adventure at Ban Ta Khun or Phanom Hospital.
