Khao Phra Wihan National Park 

      Khao Phra Wihan National Park was formed in March 1998 after the government of Thailand earmarked 130 square kilometers for the park. The park is spread over the provinces of Si Sa Ket and Ubon Ratchatani.


      The park is covered with dipterocarp and dry evergreen forests. It is more to many small animals like wild boars, barking deer, Samba, squirrels, gibbons and civets. You can also find a variety of birds and reptiles in the park.

      However, many visitors coming to park come to see other attractions besides the flora and fauna. The Khao Phra Wihan National Park's most famous tourist attraction is the More-E-Daeng cliff followed by other attractions like ancient Khmer sculptures, orchid trail, the momentous flag pole, waterfalls and rock carvings.

      Quite close to Mor-E-Daeng cliff are sculptures of three figures in Khmer clothes. The sculptures are over 1,500 years old and it is believed that the three figures depict the Hindu Trinity. There is a trail leading to the sculptures and surrounding attractions that you can visit. Once in Khao Phra Wihan National Park, do not forget to visit Prasat Don Tuan, a Khmer temple. The temple is located on the boundary of Thailand and Cambodia and it is around 300 meters from Mor-E-Daeng cliff, which forms the boundary between the two countries. As you walk from the cliff back to the national park, you will pass the twin pagodas, which have a square base and circular dome. The pagodas are considered to be stranger than other pagodas built during the same period.
