Elephant Hills Tented Camp is one of Thailand's first luxury tented camps, offering a comfortable base for exploring one of the oldest rainforests in the world. There are 30 luxury tents, each featuring twin beds, fan, kettle, and an en suite bathroom with toilet and hot / cold shower. Spacious tents are appointed with furniture handmade by local craftsmen using natural materials and are well-protected against mosquitoes and other insects. At the centre of the camp is the semi open-air building housing the restaurant and bar where buffet meals are served and evening activities, such as a dance performances by children from a local school and cooking demonstrations, take place. Surrounded by the lush tropical rainforest and mountains, it is possible to see a variety of birds and insects and hear the different noises of the forest especially in the early mornings around the camp.
Additional accommodation is available the 'Rainforest Camp', which encompasses 10 luxury safari tents situated on Cheow Larn Lake. Tents are built on stilted platforms at the water's edge, with en suite bathrooms, and a private veranda for superb views of the lake, jungle and surrounding hills. Powered by both solar and wind energy and using unique waste management systems, Elephant Hills Rainforest Camp is designed to minimise visitors' impact on the environment. The two camps compliment each other well, and nights at each is the ideal way to get the best from your stay in Khao Sok National park.
It is advisable to take a good pair of walking boots or trainers that are suitable for walking in the jungle. Waterproof clothes are also recommended, as the rainforests are wet all year round. Insect repellent and sunscreen are also recommended.
