Experiences at the Lake House Adventure
Join our newly built houseboat on a tour of the pristine and very beautiful Khao Laem also called the 1,000 islands lake which is located in northwestern Thailand near the border of Burma.
The houseboat on Lake House Adventure is built like a modern version of the Traditional Thai houseboat as the local people in this area live on, making it in accordance with local tradition. Few tourists visit this area of Thailand. There is room for 25 passengers at the Lake House Adventure.
The houseboat will take you slowly through the stunning scenery that one can enjoy from the sundeck. When the boat stops, you can take a swim, use our kayaks, fishing or just enjoying the sun on the deck. On the tour you will visit the small natural caves and coconut island. And you will also make a short hike along the river and experience bamboo rafting.
Day 1: Departure from Bangkok to Khao Laem Lake (Lunch / Dinner)
Lake House Adventure starts from New Road Guest House in Bangkok at. 8:00, where the bus leaves for Lake Khao Laem and the boat. Boat departes when everyone has arrived.
Day 2: Waterfall & Coconut Island (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)
After breakfast we take the kayaks to the mainland and after a short walk to Dai Chong Thong waterfall. Where it is possible to take a swim or just enjoy the view ( from March to May is water level, so during this period the activity can not be guaranteed). In the afternoon we will visit Coconut Island with its small population. A nice and cozy little island with obviously a lot of coconut trees.
Day 3: Kayaking and Villages (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)
In the morning you will have time for a kayak trip in between the steep cliffs. The guide will arrange a trip to one of the local villages. We experience life in this remote part of Thailand, where many ethnic groups such as the Mon and Karen live. After lunch on the boat we sail slowly out of the lake until we reach our next destination. In the afternoon you will have time to explore the delicate nature.
Day 4: Monkeys and boat trip (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)
Your guide will arrange a boat trip to some of the steep cliffs and you will also have time to jump in a kayak and see if you can spot some of the monkeys searching for food in the treetops.
Lunch will be served on the boat and while we are moving slowly toward Sangklaburi. In the afternoon, we visit a temple that few locals know. It is well hidden in the woods and has a rustic charm. When you return to the houseboat we will see another temple which has been covered under water. How much you can see of the temple depends on the season and the water level in the lake. We will anchor not far from Sangklaburi this evening.
Day 5: Hike and Bamboo Rafting (Breakfast / Lunch)
We will make a short hike along the beautiful river. After this wonderful experience, we head down the river on bamboo rafts. A simple lunch will be served at the riverbank and after lunch we will be transported to the local pig cars for Sangkhlaburi where we will have the opportunity to take a shower. Late afternoon drive back to New Road Guest House in Bangkok. You will be back in Bangkok at about 22:00.
