About Khao Yai National Park

Bet you wish you could swing through the forest trees like a gibbon, or stomp the ground beneath your feet like an elephant. Even if you can’t, you can still see these animals in the Khao Yai National Park in Thailand.

This 2,000 square kilometer park has over 50 km of trails where you can walk, hike, bike, ride, and take pictures. Capture any of the waterfalls, including the Haew Narok and Haew Suwa. Enjoy the water up close by riding the current on an inner tube with your closest friends, or go white water rafting. Zip across it on a treetop trek.

Try your hand at Special Forces training by racing your way through the obstacle course at the Wang Takhrai Stadium. Boot along the trails in style on an ATV. When you’ve physically exhausted yourself be sure to reserve your seat on a boat tour to the Khun Dan Prakan Chon Dam. When you’re done you can rest your weary head in your tent and call it a successful vacation.
