To get there

  1. At the local bus station (bawkawsaw) there is an air conditioned minivan that goes directly to the national park 5 times a day. Ask for the "rot duu bai u-tii-yan-hang-chart." Below is the timetable. The trip takes 1 hour and 40 minutes and costs 100 baht. Call 089-4162726, 083-2848638, 080-1890081 (probably only speaks Thai).
  2. You can also take a local bus (40-50 baht) from the bus station (bawkawsaw) but it does not go all the way to the national park. Instead you will have to get off in Phuwiang and take a motorcyle taxi the rest of the 20km, which will run you 400 baht roundtrip.
