Khao Yai is the third largest park in Thailand. The wildlife reservation attracts a lot of domestic tourists, and is recognized by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage has become a treasure box to foreign tourists in recent years. Khao Yai national park is located in the western part of the Sankamphaeng Mountain Range, at the southwestern boundary of Khorat Plateau. It covers an area of 2168 square kilometers and spreads across four provinces, including Saraburi, Nakhon Ratchasima, Nakhon Nayok, and Prachinburi. Coming to this national park will bring you many wonderful experiences in your trip to Khao Yai Thailand. The trails through the forest, majestic Haew Suwat waterfall, century- old trees, the steep staircases with steps only fit 1/3 of foot will be exciting challenges for enthusiasts who love adventures.


Blessed with a verdurous, lush, mountainous landscape, fertile valleys, stupendous waterfalls, rich biopersity and just three hours driving from Bangkok, Khao Yai is a year-round worth-visiting destination. The west of Khao Yai is prominent for its wild-west theme parks and vineyards, including Pirom Khao Yai Reserve and Sawasdee Chenin Blanc. For all of that, many people call Khao Yai as “Europe inside Thailand”. The south and east are highlighted with a range of natural wonders, from Prachinburi’s jungle-clad waterfalls to Wang Nam Kheo’s ozone-rich valleys.
