Attraction Details :

This wildlife sanctuary is a designated conservation zone covering over 1,000 square kilometers of forest, where five provinces join: Chachoengsao, Chon Buri, Rayong, Chanthaburi and Sa Kaeo. Its low-lying evergreen forest is the nearest of its kind to the nation’s capital, Bangkok. Other types of forest can also be found here, including dry and moist evergreen, mixed deciduous, deciduous dipterocarp, as well as grasslands.

The diversity of fauna is a great draw for visitors, and include elephants, gaur, deer, banteng, gibbons and porcupines, as well as birds such as hornbills, kites and pittas. Waterfalls such as Namtok Ang Rue Nai or Nam Bo Thong have water flowing year-round, accessible by four-wheel-drive cars and a hike. They are about 40 kilometers from the Khao Ang Rue Nai Wildlife Sanctuary Office. 

To get there from Bangkok, from the town of Chachoengsao, take the Chachoengsao – Phanom Sarakham route. From Amphoe Phanom Sarakham, follow Highway 3245 (Phanom Sarakham – Sanam Chai Khet). Merge onto Highway 3259, past Amphoe Tha Takiap to Ban Nong Khok, for around 50 kilometers. Take the Ban Nong Khok – Sa Kaeo’s King Amphoe Khlong Hat route for around 20 kilometers to reach the Khao Ang Rue Nai Wildlife Sanctuary Office and the Chachoengsao Wildlife Research Station. By bus, take the Bangkok – Phanom Sarakham bus to connect to the Chachoengsao – Khlong Hat bus and get off in front of the Khao Ang Rue Nai Wildlife Sanctuary Office. 

Admission is 200 baht for adults and 100 baht for children. Accommodation and a camping site are available. However, a written request for permission must be made at least 15 days in advance to the Director of the Wildlife Conservation Office, Department of National Park, Wildlife and Flora.
