We had arrived from an overnight train (12 hour journey) - which was surprisingly a lot more comfy than expected! We then went on the back of Yutes (big jeeps) to our wooden huts (the morning mist) in Khao Sok. The morning mist is in the middle of the rainforest and is absolutely gorgeous. (Once i find out how to put photos on you will see how lovely it is. The food is incredible with everything decorated to perfection!) Considering it is monsoon season here it has been raining a fair bit. On our first day (which was only an afternoon free) we went tubing down the local river. For anyone who doesn't know what this is (because we certainly didn't), this is when you get a round rubber dingy, jump in it, and float down the river - whilst trying to avoid rocks, trees and sticks poking out the river (and apparently snakes but i didn't see anything)!
On our second day we got up early for elephant treking. We got on the elephants backs and trekked through the rain forest! It was amazing! We even got to feed them afterwards. In the afternoon we took a cooking class were we learnt 5 thai dishes - and excuse the modesty but they were delish. In the evening we went on a search for monkeys. However the rain kept them away so we just sat there having some drinks getting to know each other.
Our last day at Khao Sok was spent mooching and not doing a lot. It was raining pretty much all day so we mainly stayed at the hut playing cards. However, as we were walking to the main eating area the river bank broke and the resort just flooded - it litrally went up to our knees. Very exciting. After that had subsided (after about an hour or two) we all walked across the road to the reggae bar and enjoyed a bbq feast of food. We took a noseybeak first at the bridge which had half collapsed into the river from all the rain.
Overall Khao sok was lovely and would certainly recomend it to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday. Off to Krabi next. x
