    for a short Besuh not suitable, because you would have to first seek information through, edible best bring your own. Only at the Kirirom resort we saw food stalls, in the Park, there was nothing et ^ ntlang of the main road until the junction to the pagoda, which is under construction.

    One should not too much hope from the waterfall in the National Park. It's a pity that you must pay an entrance fee and must pay extra for the toilets. But very nice for hiking.

    As a person who find it hard to stay under warm weather I always enjoy spending time eating, sight seeing and resting here. The climate here is just cool. Spending time reading books is ideal. I can feel at peace listening to sound of water fall/cascade. I love the view of pine trees and you can shoot your pre-wedding here. It's also a good place for meditation. I recommend a one day visit.

    If you seek for moderate to challenging hike trip to the jungle with distance about 17km, there is the best place, start from ecotourism site through bamboo forest, see bat cave, enjoy with beautiful waterfall, explore beautiful jungle and enjoy with birds watching. Please pack lunch or extra food with water and repellent, sun cream and camera to capture such a beautiful photos during the trip. Don't forget to hire local guide to make sure your trip is wonderful. Cheer let enjoy our adventures life together
