Khao Chamao Khao Wong National Park

Posted By : chauthihoaithuong/ 4 0

The two mountains in this national park, Khao Wong and Khao Chamao, loom above the farming lowlands of the Eastern Seaboard.

Elephants and Asiatic black bears find refuge in the park’s tropical, broadleaved, evergreen forests, away from farmers and hunters. Also resident is the tor soro carp. Folklore claims that the name of Chamao mountain, which means “to get drunk,” derives from the giddy feeling induced by eating the carp.

Park highlights include the pools of the Khao Chamao waterfall and the 80 or so Khao Wong caves. Tham Pet (“diamond cave”) and Tham Lakhon (“theater cave”), situated 2 miles (4 km) southeast of the park headquarters, are the most spectacular of these limestone caverns. The park’s most impressive waterfall is Klong Pla-Gang, a 3 mile (5 km) trek from park headquarters

There are few developed trails in the park. The best route climbs alongside the cas cading Khao Chamao waterfall and ends near the top of the falls at Chong Kaep.

From the park’s northwest station former elephant trails lead through the fertile and wildlife-rich forest of the stunning Khlong Phlu vallea
