This was the main destination on a tour I did from Bangkok. We only spent 2-3 hours in the park though. A third of that was driving to from the waterfall we visited. As it was late April - the end of the dry season...More

Nature with dual pricing says it all. Not very well maintained. Could be a great place if it was not only a cash cow.

We spent two full days plus a morning in the park on a guided bird tour. Saw many great birds plus mammals that included elephant. Good roads, nice trails. Not too busy on weekdays. Time well spent in fine habitat.

We are looking at doing this trip as part of our Honeymoon. Are the Elephants treated well here?? We have seen a lot of bad things about elephant treks in Thailand but we want to do an elephant friendly one.

They're wild. Your question is like asking if a random squirrel in a tree is 'treated well'. Any captive elephant made to be in close proximity to humans has been tortured, probably as a baby when it was taken from the... More
