Rafflesia – Journey to the Giant Flower
High on on the forest ridges, the elusive Rafflesia is the largest flower in the world. Here in Khao Sok, Rafflesia blooms periodically from December to March. The plant’s giant red flowers have a diameter of up to 1 meter, and it’s thought to be a parasitic vine, but no one knows for sure. Hike to the ridge to find this rare bloom, which lasts for only a few days in each location.
Duration: 2-4 hours strenuous hiking.
Tip: This hike is for people who can hike up and down steep, hilly terrain.
