My husband and I went on a one-day trekking tour with an English speaking local guide and his assistant. Early in the Morning we were brought from the Kirimaya Golf Resort to the Visitors Centre of th... more »
Kao Yai NP struck us with an overwhelming wildlife. We had the opportunity to visit the park with an excellent guide (ask for Jay-Jay, she is top) who managed to find so many different species of wild... more »
Lots of nature; very happy on its behalf. I stayed in a tent for a couple of nights and it was really nice and enjoyable. From time to time you'd hear someone trying to scare away a deer that got lured to their food. The staff I met at the information center was terrible. Little information and no will to work. The only thing they told me (again and again) was that I needed a ranger to guide me through the trails (3rd onwards). I did number 5 on my own and it was amazing. With some orientation notions you can walk freely.. even though there weren't any hints when the path divided, there were marks on the trail (5/2300 meaning 2300m of path number 5). I suppose that hiring an experienced ranger could be really good, especially if you are not used to wandering in the forest and spotting animals, but it strongly depends on who it is. It is pretty easy to hitchhike through the roads inside the park, if you don't mind sitting is some pickup truck full of bottles (true story). Highly recommended for a hint of nature. Oh.. and beware of the leeches.
Would have been great to see elephants but I didn’t spend that much time there. Will definitely go again !
