The other entrance to the park, the Eastern entrance, is via a pier on Cheow Lan Lake near Ratchaprapha Dam. From the pier you can take a boat for a trip around the lake, which is a good way to explore Khao Sok National Park and interesting because of the rock formations, or reach one of the floating bungalows in the lake where you can stay overnight.

You will need to arrange a private car or minivan to take you if want to travel between the Western and Eastern entrances to the park. The best strategy is to ask at some resorts and travel agencies to try to find a good deal.
