Cheow Lan Lake, Ban Ta Khun

#Dam, #Water Body, #Must See
Cheow Lan Lake represents a huge structure responsible for the creation of Cheow Larn Lake, popular for its scenery and recreational activities. Limestone outcrops and cliffs tower against the sides of the lake covered by dense jungles. Hike through the forest and keep your eyes peeled for exotic animals and plants like elephants, monkeys, and the world’s largest flower, Rafflesia. You can also arrange fishing tours and try to catch a huge variety of species; try staying overnight on a floating bungalow.

  • The Lake is just sublime. We could observe a Hornbill in flight, Eagles but not monkeys. No luck... The sunset is beautiful. The morning we did a walk in the jungle where we saw flora and spiders of gold "golden spider" very impressive. (No need to necessarily put long pants, it's much too hot... and the vius guide take you on clear "paths") The morning light sets are beautiful (see photo: d and then we visited the grotto of coral. Provide good shoes and a lamp (the lamp of the laptop is enough). The cave is beautiful, but if you are not comfortable in the twilight watch. Apart from the staircase, it is not laid out and it's slippery. Then the boatman showed us the three brothers emblem of the Park rocks! Beautiful and highly recommend! This Lake is a small yet well preserved treasure! To be safe, come early in the morning or sleep on the Lake to enjoy the quiet of the Aurora and beautiful light. At noon it is seriously hot and the Sun is strong (the brightness is also less beautiful). We loved us up at dawn and go kayaking by looking at the sunrise without a peep of motor and the noise of the jungle. It is a unique experience! P.S. We slept at the Waree Phuapa, we do not really recommend...

  • Beautiful view lots On top, there will be a great atmosphere, excellent operations officer about to bring water to produce electricity, but may need to contact you first.

  • Beautiful lake with limestone rock formations shooting out of the lake. It's not actually a 'lake' but a man made dam. Getting a long tail boat is one of the only ways to get around due to the thick forest clinging to the lakes steep shoreline. There are some floating bamboo huts you can stay at
  • I think put away the boat engine noises, you will find tranquility right in a minute. Water is so clear with aqua green, limestone rocks, beautiful Khao Sok Natioanal Park with lush greens, a boat ride I can't resist to put away my camera. The boat ride in the morning, afternoon, evening will give a different view. Weather at the lake is so unpredictable, it can be hot burning come next with cloudy rain, not a surprise in rain forest zone right :D We booked the tour through our resort at 2500baht per person. but the stay at Krai-sorn floating house is a 2 stars due to cleanliness. At the prai I saw a full price list listed prices of floating houses available at Cheow La Lake, but too bad was in a rush didn't get to take a picture. There is a huge lake in Malaysia living on houseboat, talking about tranquility, I think I prefer Lake Kenyir more because houseboat does not create noises.
  • Beautiful lake. It is worth renting a boat to tour the lake. Tourists will also need to pay entrance/conservation fees because the lake is part of Khao Sok National Park.
  • Beautiful, somewhat alien landscape
  • Amazing place!
