“Wonderful Wilderness”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

A visit to Pranburi Forest Park is a must for anyone visiting Hua Hin. One piece of advice I would offer is to wear nicking boots or strong shoes for your visit. There are 5 sections to explore and each one is more difficult than the other to travers. It is not suitable for people with disabilities or People who may be infirm. The climb up to Tier 5 is tough and very rough one has to climb over huge boulders, cross narrow broken uneven paths holding on to ropes and foliage growing along the edge of the Forrest. There is a large drop in places to the fast running river alongside the climb to the top. Having said this if you are fit and able bodied you will have a ball the place is amazing the different species of birds to see and listen to is mind blowing. The many species of butterflies and their colours is just amazing you will be amazed at their beauty. The early morning is the best time to visit the park the Park you will see nature at its very best. If you are prepared to hike deep into the Forrest more like a jungle we thought you might come across wild Elephants or even a Tiger but you need to be very aware and have your wits about you if you take on this trek. The river Is teaming with fish life and you can buy food to feed them at the rangers station. There were local girls swimming and diving from the high rocks along the river the day we were there, they swam like mermaids spending most of their time underwater and not swimming as we know how to swim. It was amazing to watch them we believe they live in the forest and certainly looked at home as they played in the river. If you ware sensible foot ware and are careful a very enjoyable time can be had in the park but be aware it will be very busy with tourists coming and going along the narrow trails be prepared for joining queues to cross huge rough rocks and terrain. Would we recommend it Definitely its a great enjoyable workout in the wilderness. It is also possible for people who are not so fit or are infirm to get to the top to the waterfall in a jeep with a ranger, but then the fun is taken out of it, it is the climbing the terrain that makes it so enjoyable, the heat will zap your energy so bring plenty water to stay hydrated there are lots of deep pools to cool off in if you bring a pair of swimming trunks and a towel you won't be lonely in the water either, there will be shoals of large fish to keep you company. Well worth the experience and the money.

“great walk”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

It's hard to find but a very nice place, specially when you go during the week when there are not many people. Our favourite time was just before dawn.
