We were travelling from Loei to Khao Kor and stopped off for a visit.

It's very easy to find the turning off route 21 to the entrance to Phu Ruea National Park. Pay the entrance fee at the park gate, stop off at the visitor centre for very clean toilets, then drive up to the peak. You drive to a car park about 1km from the peak and park. You then either walk the km or take the songthaew (b10 per person each way) that runs back and forwards.

We arrived at the peak as the mist/cloud came swirling in and out. We never got to see down from the peak but that was ok, the mist was very atmospheric like something from a horror movie and my wife and kids who are not familiar with fog were captivated...my wife said after our holiday that this was her favourite memory.

Well worth a visit. 60 kms from Loei (very nice drive). 1365m high peak. When we visited it was 17c at the peak and 25c at route 21.

This park was good for driving and walking. We walked to the highest point on a chilly 25 degrees day. The view was good but a little hazy. The waterfalls we walked to were not flowing as it was the dry season but it was interesting nonetheless. A good place for taking photos.

The place is worth the visit. Coniferes, rock gardens, natural mountain top. There is only one problem: Some of the routes are not clear and cleared of trees, bamboo growing over the path. Two times we tried to follow the path from their map. The first time we turned around, because we could not pass it The second time we really got in some trouble..... We had to phone for help. The good thing is that rangers came!!! Thanks for that.
The sad thing is, that this happened a year ago too... At that time the -also foreigner- had to stay overnigth in the forest before getting found.
So:
-Ask for clear information about the map and possibility to take that road/path.
-Leave information at the centre that you are going down, in case of (we did not....).

This park is actually situated on a mountain which has abundant wildlife and vegetation. The views from the top on a clear day are I understand fantastic, but unfortunately the day we went it was raining and shrouded in mist. This however did not detract too much from the experience. It is possible to drive close to the summit.
