What travelers are saying
- This wonderful nature's creation is in the area of Phu Sing National Park. First of all, ones have to hire 4WD pickup truck (together with a driver guide) which cost 500 baht and can hold passengers upto maximum of 10 (It should be noted that vehicles other than 4WD pickup truck are not allowed in this activity). Although it is legal to drive your own 4WD pickup truck, you are still recommended to hire a car and a driver because the path is cut through the dense forest and is very narrow so that 2 cars cannot use this path simultaneously, therefore all chauffeurs have to use walkie-talkie to communicate with others.
As our car climbed up the mountain (07:45 am), we (in the back of pickup truck) felt the cool fresh air with gentle breeze. After 20 minutes of penetrating through the rainforest, we reached our first stop on a huge rock at the edge of the cliff which provides panorama view of the forest below. Then, we walked to the highlight "3 whale rocks", 3 purple huge rocks protrude from the cliff resemble 3 whales (view from above and imagine) of different sizes ( 2 bigger rocks called "father" and "mother", while the inaccessible smaller one called "baby"). This point also provides a panorama view of greenish forest below.
The next stop is "elephant rock". Without using any imagination , it is undoubtedly an elephant! The driver then took us to "Phu Sing gate", 2 standing huge rocks at the edge of the cliff forming "little gorge" that looks like a big gate to the thick jungle (and fabulous view) below. After that, we drove to "Phu Sing wall", a natural vertical rock wall with beautiful pattern. Finally, our last checkpoint was a quirky place called "Sang Roi Bor", bumpy landscape contain hundred of holes at the edge of the cliff. Of course, you can see a panorama view of abundant forest at this point.
Besides the stunning views, our chauffeur was very nice and provided us some interesting historical facts about this place. Around late 70's to early 80's, the forest was used to be communists' hideout (as underground organization). Some comrades passed away here and their bodies were buried somewhere in the forest. This is why the alternate name of the forest is "pink jungle" (bit lighter than "red").
This amazing place is "the must" for ones travelling to Bueng Kan. Don't miss this ! Highly recommended.

- Google will say its closed but its not and there is water even out of rainy season. Really fun because you can slide down and there are some deep pools to cool down in. Very local place totally worth a visitWritten June 29, 2020
- Unusual location on the mekong where the river narrows and bends causing deep whirlpools given the right water conditions. Peaceful setting and location of 3 temples. We satay on temple on site accommodation, clean and simple. Would recommend sunrise /sunset experience and to just relax. Temple people very friendly and approachable. Worth a night's stay to fully experience it.Written October 26, 2018
- We were picked and dropped off at our hotel. We visited three sites and had an amazing lunch at Bueng Khong Long Lake. The trip to Phu Tok Mountain was the highlight of the trip. If you like a bit of adventure definitely don't miss this when you visit Bueng Kan. Phu Seng Mountain was also exhilarating standing on top of a huge drop off with great views. We had the greatest day and recommend it as a must do in Bueng Kan. Thanks Shane and Cherie.Written May 18, 2019
- This place is so breathtaking I’m surprised it’s not more well known. The “3 whales” are 3 gigantic rocks sticking out of a cliff: the Father, Mother & Baby Whales. Visitors can walk out on the Father & Mother, not the Baby. The Father protrudes out furthest and is the narrowest, but strangely it’s not as vertigo inducing as the Mother which is wider but with sloping sides so you are aware you can slip off and fall 300 meters to the valley below!
Photo tip is to stand on the Father rock & let someone take the photo from the Mother rock.
The rocks are part of a national park complex that has other beautiful spots too, like Elephant Rock, etc. At the ticket office you can rent an entire pickup truck for 500 baht (driven by the park ranger guides) and they have designed stops along the way.Written April 5, 2022
