"....The winter is coming, the loneliness is moving into my life and
it will be by my side forever...."
Counting down for New Year, a new way of living is starting and all the bad things from last year will be disappeared forever. One thing that always by my side is Happiness and Loneliness.
This journey was happened unexpectedly, I was just thinking of going somewhere but still did not know where? Suddenly the message from the heaven was delivered to me at 6.00pm. of 1 January...
Bai Fern : Hey..do you know a nice place to take photos?
Koy : No..but you can come to my place in Suphanburi, I can take you to Phu Toei.
Bai Fern : Really? I am going^^
Then an unexpected journey was starting...
Many reviews said that the way to "Tapernkee" is quite difficult to get there we probably need a 4WD to get there. However, that cannot change my mind, I will take my car there.
This journey was starting in an earlier morning with my younger brother, "Klod" and my friend "Koy" (our host this time). Complete the trip with three of us...let's go out to enjoy life with the nature in Hipster style.
Another difficulty was Koy's relative were not allow us go camping as it was quite far and difficult to get there ...T_T...
Oh no...My journey should not end this way...
So I called the national park office, they advised us new direction and we did not need 4WD anymore. It took longer time but the road was new and smooth. OK!! let's get going^^
We drove happily until arrive to the label of the national park...we were so excited, got off from our car and take photos "Finally we are here". Then we contacted the officer for ticket to get in, and we had another surprise that in order to really get to "Tapernkee" we still need 4WD or Pick-Up car. (we were stunned and thought that we might need to go back...T_T...) The officer offered us 2,000 THB for round trip pick up but we declined.
Suddenly, the light from the heaven was shining, there was a lady with her family came (P' Aor) to contact officer about the direction and if they can take their pick-up up there. "Of cause yes" officer said. So walked to her with my prime and told here that
"I have read a lot of review, "Tapernkee" is very beautiful, we really want to go but our car cannot go up there. If it possible, can we go with you??? please..."
She went to discuss with her husband and came back to give us the answer which made us very happy.
"Do not waste anymore time...move your belonging and get on the truck"
So we moved everything quickly and got on her car.
There are macadamised road for 10 KM. only. Dust storm will come after this.
We were well prepared for this as you can see (Hahahaha)
We could not see anything because both side were cover by dust and it was really hard to breathe. It took us about 1.30 hrs. to get there with the difficult period of 20KM.
Once we arrived, we forgot everything how much we were tired, we just smiled and were very happy that we could make it here. Then we were quickly find our location for camping tonight.
We came here with our heart and tent. We did not prepare much for food but luckily there were small shops we where could find omelette and papaya salad
We were forgotten how tired we were and how hard before we got here... We were enjoying this beautiful scenery with golden corn yard and greenery of mountain surround us.
Before the sun went down, it was a very nice short. We were enjoyed taking photos.
We took a lot of photos until the sun was gone.
"The silent was replace the light and stars are come up to replace the sun"
We were so excited and very happy because we had never seen that many stars as here before, it was very nice. I tried to take a photo but my camera did not support this mode so we thought that..
"It's ok, all stars in front of us today will be in our memory forever"
Before we went to sleep, there was a mystery guy with a full option of camera. Again in my mind, "he probably have such a nice photo of the star for sure" that how my plan was started. I went to talk to him and finally I got him to send me the photo by email (Many thanks to Khun Art)...
"As we wish"
Thank you the nice night with natural atmosphere
"Get to sleep and keep energy for tomorrow"
"Khao Thevada (Angel Mountain)"
Alarm alert to wake us up...it was a time to win the Angel Mountain.
P'Aor and her family and us will win this together with the distant of 800 metres...
After 200metres, I felt like I could not continue because the road was quite high sheer and difficult to walk. So I decided to quit but the other still moved on. (I wait for a nice photo from them) When I arrived to the starting point (not that long), they also went back down as well because it was very high sheer and difficult to walk.
"Angel Mountain" Regretfully that we could not climb up there see how beautiful is it by ourselves.
"Sunrise at the camping point" helped us to forget sadness and be happy again.
After having a very good time here, it was a time to say good bye to Tapernkee and prepared for leaving.
And keeping our memory for the last time...
P'Aor and P'Nuad
I had a lot of fun n this trip, many thanks to Koy and Klod who helped me to make this trip completed and many thanks for all nice stranger and friendship that let us come with them and also cooked for us. If I did not have you this review might not be completed. We had promised to each other that we will reunion again for another trip.
Lastly, I believe that there is no one thinks that Suphanburi would have a place like this. It is still waiting for everyone to visit and enjoy the natural atmosphere.
Nice stranger who let us go with them
I do not curious why they call "The Would Forgotten National Park" because it is quite hard to get there. That's why there are not many people come to visit. But I would like to tell you all that please come and I guarantee that you will not be disappointed
"Phu Toei National Park...The World Forgotten Nation Park but will always in our heart"
Until next time
