Attraction Details :
Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park is located in Sam Roi Yot district, between Pran Buri and Hua Hin, Prachuap Khiri Khan province. It is 45 km from Hua Hin. The high-rising limestone mountains are the symbol of Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park. Khao Sam Roi Yot means mountains with 300 peaks which describe the landscape of this mountain quite well.
The backdrop of limestone outcrops creates a contrast and unique scene of lofty mountains and sea enticing people to discover the startling mystery of this place. The park encompasses a series of unspoiled beaches and coves. The viewpoint on Khao Daeng peak is another beautiful spot where you can enjoy a heavenly landscape as well as Khao Daeng Canal which flows through labyrinthine mountains passing along a mangrove forest into the ocean.
Equally breathtaking are several caves; such as, Phraya Nakhon Cave which is well-known for its considerable size and uncommon big Karst Window. Inside the cave, there is a Thai-style pavilion built in honour of King Rama 5 the Great who visited this natural beauty. Apart from this cave, there are other caves called Tham Kaeo and Tham Sai where striking peculiar shapes of stalagmites and stalactites exist creating a distinct ambience.
Within this national park, there is one of the most significant biological diversity areas, "Thung Sam Roi Yot Wetland", which is one of the wetlands rarely found in Thailand.
