Be at one with nature as you journey your way through the Phanombencha National Park!
The sounds of the birds singing a heavenly tune become audible as you explore the Phanom Bencha National Park that spreads to 50-square-kilometre wide, filled with tightly-packed forests and an abundance of a wide variety of flora and fauna. The name of the park can be interpreted as the Five-Point Prostration Mountain, which alludes to the mountain that seemingly looks like a person in a prostate prayer position with the hands, knees and head coming in contact with the ground. The park stretches across the area of the Maung district, Khao Phanom district and Ao Luek district and it is located just 20 kilometers north of Krabi.
The protected park is the home for many indigenous animals, such as the Asiatic black bear, Malayan tapirs and numerous monkey species. Furthermore, there are a wide variety of bird species and there are more than 200 species of birds that have been documented to reside in the national park, which include the woodpeckers, argus pheasant and helmeted hornbills for all of you bird enthusiasts to discover. The national park is the humble abode of the rare and endangered Gurney’s pitta that is brightly hued.
Waterfalls are the abiotic component that greatly contributes to the complex ecosystem of the national park. The Nam Tok Huay To is amongst one of the most beautiful waterfalls that flow continuously through the jagged rocks at the bottom of the waterfall. Hear the deafening roar of the waterfall as you take a dip into the cool pool of the waterfall. Take the chance to explore other picturesque waterfalls, which includes Nam Tok Huay Sadeh (3-cascade waterfall) and Nam Tok Khlong Haeng that is just a stone’s throw away from the Nam Tok Huay To.
You will then venture further into the park by following a river and then explore a cave that seems to be safely hidden in plain sight. You will then traverse into the luscious jungle through the rubber plantation, where you will discover an abundance of flora and fauna before heading back to whence you came from through a different route from your initial route. Take plenty of pictures of the scenic path where you will encounter luscious trees that reflects in varying shades of green and a wide variety of animals that live in the park. The entire trek would take up to a good 5-7 hours, which requires a decent level of fitness and agility so prepare yourself for an exhausting but rewarding adventure!
