Posted By : chauthihoaithuong/ 4 0

Immensely popular with Thais, this 52-sq mile (135-sq km) park contains some of Thailand’s richest rainforest. It is also a haven for wildlife, with over 156 species of birds and 32 of mammals, including the Asiatic black bear, tiger, leopard, barking deer, and macaque. The park’s other attractions are its spectacular waterfalls – the most impressive being Phlio waterfall. Facing this are two chedis: the Alongkon chedi and a 10-ft (3-m) high pyramid shaped chedi, built by King Chulalongkorn in honor of one of his queens, Sunantha, who drowned at Bang Pa-in  in 1876. The region was much loved by Chulalongkorn. A harder hike is required to reach the 66-ft (20-m) roaring Trok Nong falls and the forest[1]encircled Klang waterfall. The entrance road to the park is lined with souvenir shops
