Lots of Birds!
Jan 2019 • Couples
It's a great park with lots of birds at the top. Beware of the biting flies, however. And don't forget to look for the Laughingthrushes.

Choose your moment well

I had very bad luck with the weather, and by the time I had driven the 90+ kms from Nakhon Sawan, the skies were overcast.
The small access road I took leading to the NP was full of dogs lying on the road-this together with the chickens, lent a certain danger.
At the gates, I paid 230 baht-the 200 fee for a foreigner, and 30 for my car, and I headed for the HQ & visitors’ centre.
After I had “spoken” to several rangers-no one had any English; I was told to head up to Chong Yen if I wanted to see hornbills. So, I took the winding and often times narrow, road up-and all the while, the weather worsened, turning into a heavy drizzle at the top, with poor visibility.
I nevertheless took the very wet track leading a small way into the jungle, and stumbled on 2 birders in their hide. They were intent on a small flock of white-necked laughingthrush, so I took the opportunity of getting a few pics myself. However, given the poor light, and my being some distance from the birds, there were no photos of note. Needless to say, I did not see any hornbills this time round, so shall have to return at a dryer time.
What there were plenty of were dragonflies and butterflies by the river.
Access and mobility to - and within the park is difficult, and you are much better off with your own transport.

Cool at the top
Aug 2017 • Family
Nice park with trees and hills. A bit of a drive but worth it as the towns and rolling hills nearby are beautiful. Road up the mountain is very winding and patches are a bit rough. Would only use a 4x4 if weather is rainy. Lots of cool campgrounds around if you have your own gear.
