It was a great park to explore, when I was there it was flooded so the water was muddy and some of the paths were flooded. Allot of mosquitoes so bring spray!!

This national park is stunning. There is a whole array of wildlife to see and the park itself is huge so there is plenty of walking that can be done. The organisers said to bring towels and swim shorts etc but you cant really go swimming in the waterfalls but, you can paddle in them. Naturally, there are bugs everywhere....and... More

A very small elephant camp with 4 elephants. In a beautiful forest. The elephant looked like they very very well taken care off. At night they are in the forest in the daytime they swim and eat and 1 hr in the afternoon they are used for trecking. The Mahuts very very nice and took lots of pictures without begging... More

We went on a half day trip to the Huay toh Waterfall and an hour elephant trekking. It was lovely and cost about 800 baht each. We thought we'd rather do it that way than pay for the taxi and go ourselves. The waterfall was lovely but we went in the height of the driest month, April so there wasn't... More

We arrived around 10.00 PM at the park and where amongst the first visitors. I travel Thailand for 15 years now, but have never seen a better kept place like this (exept the hotel gardens). The very friendly staff was cleaning the walkways from fallen leafs and carried them back into the forrest. Just beautyful pure nature to enjoy. Picknick... More

We went in February, so there wasn't much water flowing, but it was still pretty, and we went for a refreshing dip. After, we went on the 2km nature hike. I'll echo the 1 star reviewer in that it was very steep and strenuous. It starts easy but then goes straight up the hill. The way down was similarly steep... More

If you love nature then look no further, Phanom Bencha is simply stunning. Acres and acres of forest to explore, waterfalls, wild life, view points... Also some great value accommodation close by for those that just can't leave the place behind.

It's about a 30 minute scooter ride to the National Park and a short walk to the waterfall. We had a picnic there too with food from Tesco in Ao Nang. The waterfall is very pretty and you can take a dip in it but it can be a little busy.
