Khao Sok Rafflesia Flower Hike (Seasonal)
Dubbed the largest flower in the world, Rafflesia can grow up to 90cm in diameter and weighs up to 7kg.
This parasitic plant can only be found in a few countries, namely Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia. The flowering season falls between November and April. This four-to-five hour strenuous hike, over hilly and muddy terrains, takes you into the heart of Khao Sok National Park. The Rafflesia plant is named after Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, the leader of the expedition who officially discovered the flower in Borneo in 1818, even though the French claim that surgeon and naturalist Louis Deschamps in 1797 did so first before being captured by the English.
