Attraction Details :
Ton Pariwat Wildlife Sanctuary is located in Tambon Song Phraek and covers a total area of 40,000 acres of shady trees. It also contains Namtok Ton Pariwat or known among the locals as “Namtok Song Phraek” which is 100 meters from the Sanctuary’s headquarters. The low-rise waterfall has a pond down below where there is still some deposits of ores. In the rainy season, the water gushes down strongly. The Sanctuary provides a 2-kilometres nature trail with Bua Phut – Rafflesia kerrii, a plant species with the world’s largest flower of approximately 80 centimeters in diameter, along the route. It is rare and to be found only in a fertile forest. It blooms towards the end of the rainy season around October. Along the route, there are traces of old mines, bird-watching spots that indicate the fertility of the forest, Namtok Hin Phoeng which is a watershed, etc. A guide is needed for trekking along the trail, which takes about 1 hour. At present, a package tour is offered by travel agencies to include trekking on an elephant’s back through intact forests along both sides of the stream. Rafting is available for adventure lovers. It takes only 45 minutes and available throughout the year.
