It's not ideal to visit here
- Foreigner are charged 400 baht vs the local 40 baht
- Can't explore the place using public transport, you have to hire a car or book a tour from hotels
- The place is huge, thus a lot of travel time: entrance to visitor centre is 20km, from visitor center to other attractions are probably another 20km
- The most notable attraction are waterfalls and scenic view points
- We tried the 4km/2h trail, though it's marked, but sometimes you bump into junction with no sign whatever. We didn't get lost: either we are lucky or both paths work, I am not sure. The scenery is alright, especially the grassland, no animal spotted from the observation tower.
How to do Khao Yai National ParkThe most important thing to keep in mind is that there is no public transport operating inside Khao Yai National Park.
Unless you have a private vehicle and want to enter through the little-used southern gate, you’ll want to approach the park via the northern gateway of Pak Chong with its train, bus and minibus connections to Bangkok, Ayutthaya, Khorat and several other places. Just don’t expect to show up and find English-speaking travel agents ready to take your hand.
If you want to make things as easy as possible, arrange for an all-in company like Greenleaf, Garden Lodge or Bobby’s to pick you up in Pak Chong and whisk you straight to their own accommodation and tours.
The Complete Guide to Visiting Koh Yai National Park Independently • Alex in WanderlandDay one: arrive in park, drive to visitor center, enjoy visitor center, do hike #1 around the visitor center, have lunch, then do hike #2 to Haew Suwat. Take a night safari in the evening.
Day two: Hire a ranger for an early morning trek around Nong Pak Chi Observation Tower – hike #3 or #5 or both – followed by lunch at the campsite. Drive to the park’s southern highlights (Haew Narok waterfall, Pha Diew Die Viewpoint, spirit house).
Day three: Do an early morning hike #4 if you want one last taste of nature before departing.
You also may wish to add a night in Mu Si or Pak Chong before or after in order to see the bats of Khao Luk Chang Bat Cave, which sits 3.7 miles (6km) north of the park boundaries.
Weekend Adventure to Khao Yai National Park | That Dang FarangWe parked our moto at a trailhead that lead to an observation tower. The mostly flat trail meandered through fields of grass flattened by roaming deer, elephants, or as I expected to see, wild boar. I mean every five feet there were patches of flattened grass accompanied by small black bean-like animal dung and patches of grey fur. The excitement of seeing some of these wild creatures swelled as we uncovered more residual clues, but as we approached the watchtower, our sight list was zero. This watchtower is apparently a hotspot for elephants because of the watering hole and salt lick, and I was half expecting a scene from the Lion King. No elephants. No wild boar chase. But the weather was perfect and the rolling hills made for one hell of a relaxing stroll.

As we only had one full day, we wanted to hike the shorter 3 kilometer Nong Phak Chi Nature Trail that starts at kilometer 33 (see no. 12 and 13 in the map above). On our way we passed some impressive giant trees, spotted two monkeys high up in the trees and were amazed by the loud sound of the nature around us.
