Khao Yai is the first national park in Thailand, comprising mixed forest, rainforest, and meadows all 400 – 1,000 meters above sea level. Sightseeing on Khao Yai is one of interesting things to do in Nakhon Ratchasima. There are more than 3,000 kinds of flowers, 250 kinds of birds, and 67 kinds of mammals like elephants, tigers, gibbons, deer, and boars up there.   Important mountains that are Nakhon Ratchasima attractions are the following.   1. Khao Rom   Khao Rom Mountain is the tallest mountain in the park, coming in at 1,351 meters above sea level, and the only way up is on foot.   2. Khao Laem Khao Laem Mountain got its name from its sharp mountain peak as Laem is the Thai word for sharp. It is the second tallest mountain in the park and to reach the summit takes at least seven hours of walking plus rope climbing. Animal tracks are everywhere to be found and in a lucky day you might spot wildlife animals along the trail.     3. Khao Kheow This long range mountain can be seen from Nakon Nayok Province. You can traverse it on foot or by car. Atop this mountain there is also a radar station for the air force, which is a scenic overlook.   4. Khao Sam Yod Located to the northwest of the park, this mountain is the birthplace of many rivers and therefore teems with wildlife. It is only accessible on foot and takes around six to eight hours.   5. Khao Fha Pha Also located in the northwest, this mountain is the birthplace of the Nang Rong River in Nakhon Nayok Province. The radio station of the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) is situated here as well.   6. Khao Kam Paeng This wall-like mountain range got its name from that very feature as Kam Paeng means wall in Thai. It is the birthplace of the Lum Phra Plerng, Lum Phra Ya Than, and Lum Sai Yai Rivers.   7.

How to get there

Khao Yai National Park is only about 205 kilometres from Bangkok. You can take 1 of 2 ways; from Km. 56 of Mittraphap Road go on to Thanarat Road for about 23 kilometres or at Hin Kong intersection, go onto Highway No. 33 (Nakhon Nayok-Prachin Buri) to Noen Hom intersection and take Highway No. 3077 to the park. The second route is rather steep and is more suitable for the return trip.
