Khao Yai National Park, also known as “Dasan National Park”. It is a large natural park and wildlife sanctuary in northeastern Thailand.
It is mainly located in Pakchong District, Korat Province. The highest peak of the park, Khao Kheow, is 1,351 meters above sea level. There are many magnificent waterfalls in the mountain, the most famous of which are the Sukoshi Waterfall and the Kung Jiao Waterfall, surrounded by green forests and clouds of wild flowers. The park has modern hotels and several campsites where visitors can stay in close proximity to nature, which is interesting. At the foot of the mountain is the Chao Pao Khao Ai Temple, the temple of the mountain god, which is the starting point for visitors to the mountain.
How to get there
Khao Yai Park is about 200 km from the hotel from the capital Bangkok. The town of Pak Chong is the starting point of the park. From Bangkok you can get there by train, Bangkok-Korat line or bus from Bangkok North Terminal – Mo Chit Pier (approx. 4 hours drive). From there you can take a local bus, minivan or cab to the park (about 40 minutes drive).
Travel agencies in Bangkok sell tour packages to the park that include a variety of attractions and round-trip transportation. These are usually tours that leave Bangkok early each morning and return in the evening.
Khao Yai Park is located in the northeastern region of Thailand. It straddles two provinces, so its southern entrance is in Prachinburi and its northern entrance is in Korat. Travelers often choose to go to the north entrance, which is close to the park’s visitor center and campground.
At the park’s visitor center, you’ll find English-speaking guides, instructional brochures on attractions and accommodation options, and free maps to help you find your way around. The center also has a small museum, souvenir store and bicycle rental service. Opening hours are from 8:00 to 21:00 daily.
