Khao Yai National Park

    

     Khao Yai National Park is Thailand’s oldest nature park and reserve. It is located northeast of Saraburi, and is around 200 km from Bangkok. The park is at an elevation of 800 meters.

     The park is one of the last remaining areas in Thailand where one can see continuous areas of evergreen forest. It is home to a number of protected wildlife like deer, bears, tigers, elephants, giant hornbills and silver pheasants. The park has 12 hiking trails which range from 1.5 to 8 kilometers. There are also 10 rapids and waterfalls within the Khao Yai National Park.

     If you are visiting the Khao Yai National Park, you can also go to Nong Pakchee wildlife watch tower or visit the bat cave. The bat cave is home to thousands of bats which stream out of the cave at dusk.

     If you are a camping enthusiast, you can prepare to camp overnight in the park. However, there is no accommodation available in the park as the government and park authorities have banned development of commercial structures to preserve the park.

     However, outside the Khao Yai National Park one can find many resorts and guesthouses catering to tourists who visit the park. The resorts offer many activities to their patrons like tennis, golf, snooker and karaoke.

      Khao Yai National Park is a must-see for all those visiting Thailand. You will be able to see nature at its best and the park is one of the few places in the world where abundant wildlife can be seen in their natural habitat.
