Adventurous day trips near Khao Lak without elephant ride?

Hi!

We're off to Khao Lak at the end of July, and we really want to do a couple of adventurous day trips while we're there.

We specifically don't want to do any elephant riding. It would be great if anyone could recommend any great day trips by tour operators near Khao Lak, that are safe and ethically sound! For example:

– Jungle trekking

– White water rafting

– Canoeing/Kayaking

– Visit to the Gibbon rehabilitation project or other ethical animal-related day trips

Many thanks for your help!

Jungle trekking, canoing, raft ride, tubing, white water rides north in Khao Sok National Park about an hour away. See Green Andaman Travel at http://www.greenandamantravel.com/ Khao Lak Land Discovery at www.khaolaklanddiscovery.com/eng/index.php… Eco Khao Lak at http://ecokhaolak.com/ or contact Lora of Dior Travel in Bang Niang for booking a tour or, as a qualified guide, making up a tour or tours to your specification diorkhaolak@yahoo.co.th

There are also ATV/White Water tours near Tab Lamu just over the mountain from Khao Lak. Ask at local agents on the street or any of the above suggestions.

The Gibbon Rehab project is on Phuket. You could do a day trip there using, for instance, Boss of Cheaper than Hotel Taxis. Contact cheaper_khaolak@ymail.com
