Aanrader! De excursie Kengkrachan dam en beeldentuin is een leuke dagtour vanuit Cha-am of Huahin. Zeker een aanrader voor mensen die niet lang willen reizen en het regenwoud willen ervaren. De stuwdam ligt aan de voer van het nationale park en biedt een prachtig uitzicht. In het westen wordt dit nationale park begrensd door de Myanmarese grens en het Tenasserim gebergte.
Het meer achter deze dam is het 45 km² grote Kaeng Krachan-stuwmeer met eilandjes en omringd door bergen. In het Nationaal Park Kaeng Krachan komt o.a. tropisch regenwoud, savanne en zoutwatermoeras voor.

Pretty cool place, only one of the bridges was open and thought there'd be more of an opportunity to walk but there's... not as many paths as I thought...Can rent a bicycle for 30b an hour, they're all a bit rickety but it was good fun.Can also camp there, think it's 250 a night.We all enjoyed ourselves and the food at the cafe was yummy and reasonably priced (50b or so a meal) though they were a little stingy with the sauce..Overall a nice spot 👌❤️read more
Kaeng Krachan National Park, a huge disappointment. After reading information online and in my travel guide, I was... really looking forward to explore this beautiful national park. After a one hour ride from Phetchaburi, I reached the entry point to the park. Being a foreigner, my ticket was 300 baht, a reasonable price, at least that's what I thought at that moment in time. I reached the Ban Krang camping site, parked the car and started looking for trails into the forest, hoping to encounter interesting animals. I found one 'trail', which immediately required me to cross 2 streams and afterwards it was pretty much guessing where to go next. The only animals I came across, were annoying insects, no tropical birds, no monkeys, nothing worth my blood, sweat and tears in the humidity and heat of the forest. I got back at the camping site to discover there was nothing else to see or explore. Since the next camping site was only accessible by a 4 wheel drive, my adventure ended prematurely at the camping site. I truly wonder how on earth people are supposed to encounter elephants, leopards and other animals in this park (as stated online), there are hardly any trails or viewpoints and you won't find them on a campsite. Unless you enjoy camping in nature, avoid this national park, paying 300 baht for wandering around a campsite is not worth your time, Thailand has so much more to offer.read more
Kaeng Krachan National Park has been accepted as a World Heritage Site, announcement made on 26th Jul 2021Kaeng... Krachan National Park is the largest national park of Thailand.It is on the border with Burma, contiguous with the Tanintharyi Nature Reserve.It is a popular park owing to its proximity to the tourist town of Hua Hin.read more
Thailand's largest NP. A wonderful place for birding, butterflying, hiking and photography. Went mainly for birds and... butterflies and KK provided plenty of both. Saw 42 new bird species w/pics of most and countless species of butterflies. Also 1 beautiful Monocled Cobra, which was an added thrill and bonus.read more
Very friendly staff and great place for camping and hiking also the small coffee shop and food are excellent, but... cleanliness from showers and toilets are bad, why making a very expensive and nice concrete road if you not even can maintain the toilets and showers! Urgent need to improve this. But will return to the park.read more
this park has multiple entrances, and it seems reviews for the Pala-U waterfall and the main camping areas (Ban Krang,... etc.) are being conflated. These two entrances are far apart, and two totally different experiences that just happen to be in the same park. The waterfall is just that: a waterfall (and definitely not worth 300 baht.) The camps are the real thing (worth 300 baht). See reviews for Ban Krang instead.read more
This is the biggest national park in Thailand. The trails have different levels and are suitable for all hikers. The... wildlife is amazing. We saw a spotted leopard, an Asian foreat tortoise, dusky leaf monkeys, birds, and over 20 species of butterflies. The park fee entrance is 300 baht for foreigners and 100 baht for Thais. A long tail boat tour across the dam is highly recommended. The park is open from November to July every year. During COVID-19 only Ban Krang Campsite is open.read more
Quite disappointing. It’s called a national park but it’s basically just a camping site. Not so much tree around,... ground is paved with beton and grass. Was thinking on visiting the suspension bridge, but to find out that the bridge is suspended, i.e. dismantled 🤣read more
Beautiful Park. Nice for a drive and found one nature trail that gives the feeling of walking through the forest.I... have been spoiled though by US parks. I wish there were more trails where you could spend most of the day walking in the forest. In Kaeng Krachan only the main road and the one trail were for walking. Maybe there were more but no maps were available. Given the 300 baht entrance fee for non thais I don't think it is worth a repeat visit more than once a year.read more
No consideration for foreigner tourists at all, as there is no information in English and no one speaks it either.We... drove over 2 hours to get there, paid the tickets to get in (660 thb), drove another 30m to the base camp just to find out that the road to the main set of waterfalls (Thor Thip) has been block for over an year. A simple note on the website, or at least one at the entrance pointed out by any staff handling the public, would be enough to avoid foreigners from wasting time and money.read more
I made the mistake of just searching the name of the national park on Google, then spent a long time trying to work out... which part these reviews were talking about as Google Maps shows two separate destinations as Kaeng Krachan. Realized after visiting today that the northern destination of the two is in fact Pa La-U waterfall. Search for that on Maps for better information.read more
It's a wonderful place with many activities to do beside camping. A few things can be change like charging people to... park there car, to go camping at national park is wrong. But that's a people issue, not the park.read more
One of the best waterfalls in Thailand. It's quite long with many different levels, sections, swimming pools and is... great for swimming. There are many large fish and they will try and bite you if you stand still, so swimming can be a little adventurous! Except a 30min hike to the bigger fall at level 5.read more
Hiking up the different levels is difficult. I'm 68 years old and there are areas where you have to use a rope to move... along. If you're not in good condition I would suggest you shouldn't go past the second level. I was pretty tired when I reached level 4. I decided not to go any further. I would say the butterflies are beautiful and worth taking photos of them. Bring a swimming suit as you might want to cool off in the crystal clear water. Lots of fish to feed too.read more
Very interesting place. The rapids of the waterfall are small, but beautiful, around the jungle. There are a lot of... fish in the waterfall, the children really liked to feed them. Be careful in April there were a lot of wasps, my daughter was bitten by a wasp in the leg, local workers in the cafe said that they did not bite.read more
