Attraction Details :
Hiking up to the summit of Phu Kradueng and conquer the distance of 1,325 meters above sea level has always been an ultimate dream for many Thai trekkers. The 60-square-meter top plateau of Phu Kradueng is blessed with beautiful sceneries, pine forest, wild flowers and cold climate people love to camp to catch the first and last sunlight of the day.
Other attractions include Pha Nok Aen, the cliff that offers a breathtaking view of the crimson sunrise, Pha Lom Sak, a sandstone ledge jutting into space providing a fine view of the hills and valleys and Pha Yiap Mek, where cottony clouds suggest a misty world of shadow figures.
The national park has accommodations and camping spaces provided. The park is closed to rehabilitation during 1 June – 30 September every year.
Admission: 400 baht for adults, 200 baht for children
