By late afternoon, the boat driver will meet you again and pull the raft back to your accommodation, with one last stop at the majestic Sai Yok Waterfalls. The deck of your raft then transforms into a natural rain shower. Expect to see smiling locals jumping on your raft to play with you and your friends!

After passing by a couple of low-run accommodation and floating rafts, you will enter deep into the national park. You won’t see a single human construction or building for few kilometres until you reach the River Kwai Cool Camp. Built by a Norwegian and his best Thai friend with their bare hands, the camp is powered by solar panel and rain water only is used for shower and toilet facilities.
At the camp, you will be met by the park rangers who will take you to their home. Enjoy a real local lunch before exploring the thick jungle with the rangers. If not keen for a trekking, don’t worry! Some bicycles are available for a fun and relaxed drive among the plantations.
