The drive from Bangkok to Khao Kho is a long one - 6 hours, give or take.

To break up this long drive, your first stop will be in Lopburi. This capital of the Lopburi province is well-known for the troops of crab-eating macaques that roam the town freely.

After a long day of travel just to reach Khao Kho, a hearty dinner is definitely in order. Head out to Rai Chanram Restaurant, which serves a spread of Chinese-style Thai dishes. The passion fruit juice here is a must-try - sweet, tangy and refreshing.

Perched above the rolling forest hills blow, this restaurant is where you’ll get your first taste of Khao Kho’s magnificent scenery!

Start your day with one of Khao Kho’s iconic sights: the Wat Prathat Phasornkaew. Hidden up in the mountain tops of Khao Kho, the Wat Prathat Phasornkaew - which translates to Temple on the Glass Cliff - serves as a sanctuary for monks and Buddhist followers because of its serenity up in the mountains.

Made out of over five million mosaic tiles, the temple grounds are truly a sight, particularly in the golden glow of the morning. Get a good look at the temple’s iconic Five Buddha statue, admire the striking architecture, and don’t forget to climb up to the top for the amazing vistas it affords!

Khao Kho isn’t short on charming mountain views - take advantage of this and dine alfresco at the Pino Latte Resort and Cafe! They serve a wide range of brunch plates and drinks, so order some coffee with your meal and savor the outdoor ambience.

The tallest mountain in the Phetchabun province, Phu Thap Boek is one of Khao Kho’s top spots, in more ways than one. At a height of 1,768 metres, visitors can enjoy cool weather all year round - but the magic truly happens during the rainy season between February to November. Thick clouds roll down to engulf the hills, creating an ethereal scene right out of a dream.

Overlooking 24 giant windmills standing tall in the middle of the Khao Kho Wind Farm fields, strap onto the swing and get ready for that million dollar shot.

Aside from the scenery, another of the Wind Farm’s highlights is the food and souvenir stalls scattered around. You can find handcrafted souvenirs made by the locals in the village, which make for great souvenirs.

There’s even a small Teletubbies-themed park within the Wind Farm! A little random - but it makes for a quirky photo op.

A 15-minute drive away from the Wind Farm, Boranniyom Khao Kho Restaurant has a varied selection of Thai and Western-influenced dishes. With friendly service and comforting dishes that taste home-cooked, you’ll be in for a comforting dinner to end the day.

Start your day right, with a trip out to the Khao Kho National Park! If you’re an adventure seeker or a nature lover, this place is exactly for you.

Start off with exploring the best of nature in this national park, with its scenic steep valleys, mountainous terrains, mysterious caves, impressive waterfalls and more.

Go for a trek through the lush forest of the national park or have a dip at the Than Thip Waterfall, with waters flowing from the rocks at 26 meters height and 30 meters width. Depending on your luck, you might also be able to spot wild animals like wild boar, common muntjac, macaques, palm civets and more.

Once you’re done exploring on foot, adrenaline junkies can opt to take on some adventure activities within the park! There’s kayaking, waterfall rappelling and more, all available in the park depending on the season.

Located just a 15 minute walk from the beach near The Cliff Ao Nang Resort, Ao Nang Boat Noodle is a wonderful find for those looking to avoid After an entire half-day of adventuring, head out to the nearby Malee Restaurant to refuel for the afternoon activities. Catering to the Khao Kho National Park explorers that stop over for lunch, Malee Restaurant dishes out its affordable Thai dishes swiftly.the typical tourist trap restaurants.

Part of Thailand’s ecotourism conservation efforts, the Bang Rachan Islet is where several locals make a living from offering boat rides down the river. These locals aren’t mere boat captains; they also serve as gatekeepers of the Bang Rachan Islet’s pristine condition and the Nong Mae Na area.

Take a river boat down and catch sight of the Khek River wildlife, a Buddhist temple, a butterfly-watching site and even freshwater jellyfish!

After a quick stop back at your Khao Kho hotel to wash up from the day’s activities, head on a short 10-minute drive out to Jolly Cafe for dinner.

This chic country style cafe serves Western mains like homemade wood fired pizza and pasta. Do save some space for their delicious desserts!

Sunset is the perfect time to stop by - that’s when the fairy lights are switched on, so you’ll get both the magic of golden hour and twinkling lights over dinner.

All good things must come to an end, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy more of what Khao Kho has to offer as you journey back to the city!

Make a morning stop at B.N. Farm, where there’s always a different fruit in season. If ice-cream in the morning sounds good to you, they sell delicious homemade ice-cream as well!

Savour your last opportunity - for now - to dine alfresco in Khao Kho’s fresh mountain air at Tanrak Talaymok.

In line with its beautiful setting amongst the mountain’s flora, both the exterior and interior of Tanrak Talaymok is decked out in flower and plant motifs. Take a balcony seat that overlooks the mountain side, or find a quiet table in the flower garden.

After 3 hours on the road, stop to stretch your legs at the picture-perfect Golden Hill Village. With its pastel shop facades and vintage stores, the tiny town looks like something straight out of a storybook.

Stop for drinks and a quick bite at one of the quaint cafes, and take back some handcrafted souvenirs from the stores.

After a much-needed break, complete the rest of your journey back to bustling Bangkok!
