    The most important tourist destination in Uthai Thani province is the Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary. Stretching over an area of 5,775 square kilometers, Haui Kha Khaeng Sanctuary is located in three provinces of Uthai Thani, Kanchanaburi and Tak.


      This wildlife sanctuary is also known as the largest connected wildlife reserve in Thailand and entire South East Asia.

      Due to its unique and rich wildlife diversity and natural habitat, the entire sanctuary was declared a World Heritage site by the United Nations in December 1991, along with adjoining Thungyai Naresuan Wildlife Sanctuary.

      As a result of its distinctive weather pattern, one can find 5 out of 7 different kinds of tropical forests in this sanctuary. These include the dry evergreen forest, montane forest, savannah, mixed deciduous forest and deciduous dipterocarp forest. The weather is very hot during summers, extreme rains during the rainy season and a short winter season.

      Not only the flora, but also the fauna in these forests are distinct. Around 153 species of mammals, 490 species of birds, 41 kinds of reptiles and 108 kinds of fish reside this forest. Huai Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary is considered to be the only existing natural habitat in Thailand for some of the majestic carnivores on this earth including the tiger, clouded leopard and the Malaysian sun bear. Some of the birds and animals found in this sanctuary are nearing extinction and they include the White-winged wood duck, Kalij Pheasant, Gaur, Burmese Peafowl, tapir, mainland serow, rhinoceros, hog deer and the Indo-Chinese green peacock. One can even find certain rare species of gibbon in this park.

      Only certain areas inside the sanctuary can be visited by tourists. Some of tourist attractions inside the park include caves containing fascinating formations of stalagmites and stalactites, limestone mountain ranges and gorgeous waterfalls. Trekking is permitted inside the sanctuary along the Khao Hin Daeng nature study route. However, one cannot stay overnight in this sanctuary.
