Hop from your tree house on to an elephant
Jungle House is a resort, campground, attraction, restaurant, and tour operator all rolled into one, and it is indeed impressive.
The grounds stretch back for several kiometres, and indeed the whole place is in the jungle, with narrow roads and paths connecting one bulding to the next. There are a whopping 29 different accommodation options, from basic cabins set well out in the jungle to spacious, high-roofed lodges capable of sleeping 15, to actual tree houses perched some ten metres above the ground. Even the most simple of accommodation is very comfortable, and all include air-con, hot water bathrooms, and TV. The resort is known for its elephant tours, and the always captivating beasts may be seen regularly walking the grounds (with mahout of course). The resort also offers a night safari inside Khao Yai, and has a climbing wall and extensive restaurant. Breakfast and WiFi are free for guests, and bicycles may be rented for 50B per hour. The resort also offers Jungle Camp across the street, which offers basic tents with shared bathrooms for 800B during dry season, or 300B if you bring your own tent.
