Attraction Details :

Located on the steep Khao Ya Mountain, Phra Tamnak Khao Kho was built as a palace for the King on the occasion of His Royal Highness’s visit to royal initiative projects as well as residents of the area. The concrete building has 15 rooms overall, built in a semi-circle shape, a unique feature that makes it stand apart from other royal abodes. However, visitors must ask officials for permission prior to any visit to the palace surroundings.

To get there from Khao Kho, take Highway 2196 and go past Km. 29 for 4 kilometers before turning left into the palace. As the road is steep, please take special precautions: vehicles should be in good condition and have high-powered engines.

Visitors can also rent a Song Thaeo (or open-air cab) at the entrance to Khao Kho in the Camp Son area. At Km. 100, there is a minibus service runs from 8.00 am-5.00 pm. Otherwise, a Song Thaeo can be rented at the Municipal Market in Mueang Phetchabun.

Operating hours are 8.00 am-5.00 pm daily.
