Weekend, Saturday - Sunday in this season... I recommend you to go to "Thung Dok KraChiao and Mo Hin Khao" at Chaiyaphum province.
Just find 4 -5 friends and carry 2 -3 tents with you and start the journey huuuu!!
This trip I am going to recommend 3 main places:
1. Going to see Thung Dok KraChiao at "Pa Hin Ngam National Park" to see Lan Hin Ngam including Pa Sud Pan Din in the morning.
2. Going to see Thung Dok KraChiao at "Sai Thong National Park" and relax at waterfall.
3. Going to see Thung Dok KraChiao at "Mo Hin Khao" in a cooling atmosphere before going back to face with a city life haha.
When you want to go travelling, please don't deny to wake up early because when you are at attractive place in the morning, it can make you guys feel the great beauty of the nature. So, I will describe the place step by step, briefly but easy to understand.
Step 1 : Wake up early, using any method to calculate travelling time from the beginning distance to reach
Pa Hin Ngam National Park around 6.00 am ( intend to be on time at 6.00 am)
After reaching there, you have to find a park lot and buy a entrance and car service ticket to the national park.
Ta Lai car or a bus tour will drive you guys comfortably to visit difference places.
::: Cost 1st step :::
- National park entrance fee 40 Baht
- A bus tour 50 Baht
::: 1st time Total cost 90 Baht :::
Fortunately, the time I go there is during my graduation period so I bring the gown with me for photo taking too to change my unique background picture hahaha.
Now let's see interesting things to visit at the Pa Hin Ngam National Park.
Please do a deep search if you want to know more (it takes around 3 hours).
1. Thung Dok Krachiao (Siam Tulips)
2. Lan Hin Ngam (Beautiful cliffs)
3. Pa Sud Pan Din
Step 2 : Walk out from Pa Hin Ngam National Park to Sai Thong National Park, it's better to arrive there at noon to have lunch there or have it before enter the national park. It consumes much energy here because you have to walk. You have to prepare yourself well, here are 4 groups of Thung Dok KraChiao but each group is 1 kilometer far haha.
Above is a map everyone have to walk through, if you can't stand just go to 2 main groups are enough.
but don't forget to take a photo at Pa hod and go to play in Sai Thong Waterfall before going to Mor Hin.
Totally you guys have to walk for about 10 kilometers hahaha.
On the map, you need to park the car and pay the fee for 50 Baht/person to buy a round minibus ticket to Thung Dok Krachiao .
The bus will drive us inside around 9 kilometer far.
After that you guys have to start walking from "Pa Pho Muang", the distance and destination depends on your energy.
PS. You guys can switch to visit the place between morning and afternoon.
Maybe you can go to Sai Thong in the morning and Pa Hin Nham in the afternoon, it depends on convenient of each people : )
::: Cost for the 2nd step :::
Minibus fee 50 Baht
:: Total cost of the 2nd step is 140 Baht :::
Now let's see interesting things in Sai Thong National Park.
1. Pa Hod
2. Thung Dok Krachiao
3. Sai Thong Waterfall
We will spend more time about 4 hours here at Sai Thong National Park.
After finish playing in waterfall to relax from hot weather, we then pack up our stuffs and heading to Mo Hin Khao.
We are having a meal first and will be back in the afternoon.
After travelling for while, some of my friends is falling a deep sleep in the car now haha
Yeah, I understand it's so tired. Now let's see the 3rd step.
Step 3 : Departure from Sai Thong National Park to Phu Laen Kha National Park takes around more than 1 hour.
So, you should be hurried and control the time and get out from Sai Thong National Park before 15.30 pm if possible. There is a period of passing through Tat Ton National Park but we have to say goodbye to it because we certainly have no time to visit it.
If not tired, we still can come back to this place on the way back hahaha. After we travelling to Phu Laen Kha National Park, you then have to contact the staffs, when I visit this place, I don't have to pay any fee hahaha.
Make a quick reserve for tents but if there are too many people or maybe sleep at Mo Hin Khao but you have to contact the staff first because the yard in the Mo Hin Khao area is far away from staffs because there are concerned about our safety.
Just takes time to relax and don't be serious while staying at Phu Laen Kha National Park.
Don't bored and angry that there is nothing to do here.
I do not recommend you to stay here during 4.00 pm.-8.00 am.
If beyond that period, you will not have fun travelling because it is very hot here.
The main interesting place at Phu Laen Kha National Park are :
1. Mo Hin Khao
2. Pa Hin Nank
Since Phu Laen Kha National Park is located in the highest area so it makes me see the sky wider than other place.
If lucky the sky is clear, you can also lay down to see the star with your lover here hehe.
Travelling up to this place, I have to say Thank You to friends that are reading up to this point. This is a simple trip, suitable for people taking their own car and find 4 -5 friends or people who go with their couple haha
On the next day morning or the second day that wake up from Mo Hin Khao, after a photo taking with Mo Hin Khao in a chilly atmosphere in the morning. If you still have energy left, you can also go to Tat Torn Waterfall at the side walk first but I am not going with you hahaha.
Lastly, let's see the main estimate cost and see you in next review.
- Total cost of step 1 and step 2 : 140 Baht
- Fuel cost for round trip travelling 800 kilometers. I have already calculated the gas or fuel, it is 2.5 Baht/kilometers, total fuel cost is around 2,000 Baht. If sharing with 5 people, estimate cost is 400 Baht/person.
- Food cost around 80 Baht/meal. I think 400 Baht/person should be enough for 5 meals.
Finally this trip we use up around 800 - 1,000 Baht, I confirm!!!
(When I go there, not more than 1,000 Baht is spent during my trip, this trip is such a happy trip).
