Khao Phanom Bencha National Park

Posted By : chauthihoaithuong/ 5 0

This 193-sq mile (500-sq km) national park of mostly tropical monsoon forest is named for the five-shouldered peak of Khao Phanom Bencha, which rises to a height of 4,580 ft (1,397 m).

Despite illegal logging and poaching, the park’s rainforest still holds at least 156 species of bird, including the white crowned hornbill and the striped wren[1]babbler. Among the 32 mammal species catalogued are the Asiatic black bear, Malaysian sun bear, clouded leopard, wild boar, binturong, and serow.

The thundering Huay To waterfall and Huay Sadeh waterfall are located less than 2 miles (3 km) from the park headquarters. Park attendants can arrange treks to the summit. The climb is difficult but rewarding – from the top there are spectacular views of the surrounding forest
