Chief of Phu Kradeung National Park, Sombat Phimprasit, announced on Friday (May 31) that the park will be closed between June 1st and September 30th. Tourists will neither be admitted nor allowed to stay in the park overnight.

The park chief said this annual closure, during the rainy season, is because trekking and trailing will be too tough and risky due to the difficult terrain. The respite from humans also allows nature to regenerate the flora and fauna. The park will also take the opportunity to fix all the facilities in the camping ground and its accommodation in readiness for the next tourist season.

The good news is, however, nature lovers will still be allowed to visit Sri Than Centre and Tad Hong Waterfall at the 123 Wildlife Conservation Centre in Nanoi at the foot of Phu Kradeung.

For those who wish to trek and trail on the top of Phu Kradeung between October 1st, 2019 and May 31st, 2020 can reserve their camping quota and park accommodation in advance via the park’s website atnps.dnp.co.th. Enquiries can also be made directly to Phu Kradeung National Park, telephone number 042- 810833 and 042- 810834.
