Khao Lak–Lam Ru National Park is a national park in Phang Nga Province, Thailand. The park is named for two of its mountain peaks, Khao Lak and Lam Ru. It also encompasses beaches and forests.
Khao Lak–Lam Ru National Park is north of Phuket city and 30km south of Takua Pa. The coastal area here is typically referred to as "Khao Lak". The park is just off Route 4 (Phetkasem Road).
Khao Lak–Lam Ru park covers parts of four districts: Kapong, Mueang Phang Nga, Takua Pa, and Thai Mueang. The park's area is and its highest peak is 1077m.
Originally the park was a seashore park, but in 1984 it was extended to encompass the forested and mountainous area inland and for protection of the province's main drainage basin. On 30 August 1991, Khao Lak–Lam Ru became Thailand's 66th national park.
The December 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami caused high casualties in Khao Lak. Due to its location and shoreline terrain, the area suffered the worst of any area in Thailand, with over 4,000 deaths.
The park has numerous large waterfalls, the largest of which is Lam Ru Waterfall, a waterfall of 5 levels and year-round water flow. Other waterfalls include Lam Phrao, Hin Lat, and Ton Chong Fa. The coastal park section at Khao Lak sea shore offers very clear waters and clean, quiet stretches of beach.

  • There is a little beach in the park, a very nice area, quiet and many big trees. Unspoiled nature, you can spend half a day here.  more »
  • Might be worth a visit but the trail is very short and actually nothing particular. The best part is the beach wich wasn't crowdy at all.  more »

  • National Park about 2.3 km from Laguna Resort Hotel. Route choices are a few, challenging terrain, a mutable rewarding experience. Reserve enough water. At the end of the route, a small White Sands beach is definitely worth a visit. I highly recommend!
  • Its a little struggle to walk the path but worth the effort. When you arrive at the beach you will find a little paradise.
  • Stunning place. Waterfall is massive, five levels to walk up. Bring decent hiking footwear.
  • Really good exposure to local jungle - with some beautiful scenary we were fortunate to have the place to ourselves so really peaceful too! The spa pool with nibbling cleaner fish was an experience especially fir the kiddies. ..
  • Took the Walking track to the Small sandy beach. Good walk in the tropical area. The beach is very nice! Your entry ticket from Lam Ru is also valid in Lam Pi water fall. Make sure you get both same day.
