Kaeng Krachan National Park
This is the most extensive national park of Thailand occupying an area of 2,915 square kilometers and still largely unexplored. The national park office is located, 3 kilometers beyond Kaeng Krachan Dam.
It was declared a national park on June 12, 1981, with clearly defined areas for a reservoir and year round green jungle in the Tanaosri Ranges which are the origins of many rivers.
The area is also rich in flora and fauna and has an 18-level waterfall named Namtok Tho Thip. About 54 kilometers from the park office on the Sai Wang Won – Namtok Tho Thip route, there is a viewpoint affording magnificent views of misty mountains in the morning and suitable for bird and butterfly watching.
Rafting along the Phetchaburi River takes some 6 hours, passing rapids and several smaller rivers.
