  • Our most memorable stay during a month long visit to Thailand. This is the place that we liked the most. We saw hornbills, gibbons, vipers, scorpions and many more.  more »
  • The perfect place to discover the fauna and flora. The bungalows inside the Park are very well equipped and can live in harmony with nature. Do the night safari, it's beautiful. It is best to have a vehicle within the Park.

  • We hired a tour company for 2 days to see the park. Our goal was to see as many birds as possible along with monkeys, Gibbons and Elephants. We had a great guide and had an amazing time watching the G...  more »

  • Lots of nature; very happy on its behalf. I stayed in a tent for a couple of nights and it was really nice and enjoyable. From time to time you'd hear someone trying to scare away a deer that got lured to their food. The staff I met at the information center was terrible. Little information and no will to work. The only thing they told me (again and again) was that I needed a ranger to guide me through the trails (3rd onwards). I did number 5 on my own and it was amazing. With some orientation notions you can walk freely.. even though there weren't any hints when the path divided, there were marks on the trail (5/2300 meaning 2300m of path number 5). I suppose that hiring an experienced ranger could be really good, especially if you are not used to wandering in the forest and spotting animals, but it strongly depends on who it is. It is pretty easy to hitchhike through the roads inside the park, if you don't mind sitting is some pickup truck full of bottles (true story). Highly recommended for a hint of nature. Oh.. and beware of the leeches.
  • Would have been great to see elephants but I didn’t spend that much time there. Will definitely go again !
  • Terrific park! Much to see and study, so best if you can stay for a week. There are comfortable cotages with two single beds and attached shower and toilet, as well as tenting areas to stay in.. Plenty of parking. I must say the staff were very friendly and helpful, making me feel very comfortable. Being a Canadian with no knowledge of the Thai language, they were wonderful. I came to see as well as photograph the Hornbills and was not dissappointed. There is so much wildlife to see and photograph that the five days I was there was sadly lacking. For me six months would be nice. There is food and drink around the office offered by hawkers, it tasted great for me. I highly recommend this park and a stay there. If you're a westener and don't know any Thai language, do not be disrespectful to the staff, they try very hard to be helpful. My warmest thanks to the staff, great job.
  • A very beautiful place to visit, only thing is that it is a bit in the middle of nowhere and traveling there takes some time. Definitely worth it!
  • Fresh air, nature and trekking. It was 18 C in the morning in April. Good place for having rest and feel a little bit cold 👍🏻
