  • Comanche private car travel convenience. Monkeys live along the path Don't drive fast. There is no point feeding monkeys in a nature study route, walking up to the top, but the day we went, we went to a little hot air waphro 1638. Preparation of water-drinking during the journey to the caves.

  • We went there yesterday on 23 February 2018 in bikes that we had rented in Cha - Am to 180 baht for 24 hours. This picturesque and peaceful Park is located about 10 km from Cha - Am. No cost of entry. Monkeys welcome us as soon as we walk on the sidewalk leading to the staircase trail that climbs the mountain. We did not travel in full and were not really equipped by good shoes to do. We will be back maybe later. We are pleased with our visit anyway because we wanted above all to see monkeys and we met in profusion. A sign that we have photographed indicates that the journey of 2.5 km can take between one and two hours to complete. It is an ideal place for a romantic picnic but watch greedy monkeys because they also like a picnic! We want to share with you several pictures of our short but very nice visit. We recommend this park. Written notice on February 24, 2018, Cha - Am, Thailand.

  • 10-13 km from Cha am Northeast away. The Park is only 2 km before. Orient you should the by Cha on the visible mountains, going towards Bangkok, yellow-orange metal bridge road No. 4 and then on the next turn left direction mountains. It assumes a while always on the main road just over the railway crossing over it, left and right are many rice fields, then a minor road branches left shortly before the mountains, is signposted and right directly after approx. 150 m drive to the mountains, the Park sign au s stone (right) past and then you can see the Park, all maintained. We have risen up in the left of the Park, a small Grotto and 2 views, back left again in the manicured Park next, soon continue uphill to a small covered plane, here the way divides left high, supposedly to a further viewpoint, what is accessible but not until the very end, so go back to the level and left behind, then back up up to the elephant Lookout, something like that is called, the climb requires ständuge concentration and should, if possible, with stout footwear and 1 bottle of water committed per person are, at the viewpoint you can see far beyond the rice fields in the country, since it was slightly more complicated, because the way is worse, because you had to climbing rocks and scree, then we have found the way back is down and uphill, meanwhile is also the Sun (early afternoon), one or two points of view on the other side of the mountain, from where is the way to more demanding, it comes to the target from the elephant lookout you to Cha am see, again on the other side the Parker arrived, sweaty, somewhat ko, but happy to have made it. It is partly in this damp climate, often more challenging, than in the northern European climate. I had this time no footwear after Thailand took, because I just relax wollte(!) and had to settle with solid sandals, have fortunately non-slip soles, otherwise I would run all the way. It is also how eg. in the Alps focus a challenge constantly on every step to. If you want to watch something, you must stop, otherwise it could become problematic, take many breaks, drink a lot, and delay. We're alpine hikers. I would lay only the path to the cave and to the level and recommend back. We were also travelling alone. A few visitors did not trail the entire. With children, I would stop me only in the Park, with benches, monkeys etc. In total we needed most and back 4.5 hour with arrival of Cha.  It is advisable very early in the morning to start, to avoid rising temperatures and the Sun irradiation something. Is open from 8 am until 4 pm. We have seen but no goal or a barrier to the Park. It had not rained for days, thus all routes, levels were etc. completely dry to happiness! Conclusion: Early start to the day, the weather of the last few days should be rainless. It was worth it, was very exhausting, because we started a little later. 3 km are little, but not if you usually stages and over stones and pieces of rock or must descend. Then the way of 10 km is one. For anyone who likes nature and little physical activity, it is worth especially since the Park is little known and few visitors there are. Also buses do not drive here!

  • took a hike up the mountain, took almost 1.30 hrs to complete the circuit ! is worth if you are up for some quite peaceful time with the nature.
  • We are really impressed by the well care, how they organize location and design the landscape so much detail which taking care by the local people. It is very beautiful and peaceful place. We felt like we were in Japan hahaha not Thailand. The big route is quite steep but it is still walkable without hiking stick and my friend still survive with flip-flops. Highly recommended for nature lover
  • We've been in November. It was a bit abandon but the view from the top was great! Didn't see any monkey.. it was a bit hot and challenging...
