Pa Deo Die Cliff

Haew Narok Waterfall

This UNESCO world heritage Khao Yai National Park with its refreshing scenic landscapes is a great breakaway from city life. The untouched jungles, waterfalls and mountain streams also make it ideal for spotting animals and exotic birds! Here are 3 of the top hiking and sightseeing spots in Khao Yai National Park:

Haew Suwat Waterfall
The Heaw Suwat Waterfall is a great place to take a dip after sweating it out on your trek around the park. As the cool water drops from the 20 meter cliff, be sure not to play in the pond on a rainy day because it can get pretty dangerous.

Pa Deo Die Cliff
Arguably the most scenic point of the Khao Yai National Park, just a 15 minute walk from the Pak Chong Entrance will take you to Pa Deo Die Cliffs! Enjoy the panoramic views as you hang your legs over the edge in awe of Mother Nature’s work.

Haew Narok Waterfall
Towering over us at a height of 150 meters, the Haew Narok Waterfall is Khao Yai National Park’s most impressive waterfall! While you’ll definitely have to conquer a healthy flight of steps to get to the falls, the majestic views are surely worth it.

Tambon Hin Tung, Amphoe Mueang Nakhon Nayok, Chang Wat Nakhon Nayok 26000

After hiking and exploring at the national park, take a few hours to rest at the hotel. When the hunger starts making its presence known, then make your way to Pak Chong Night Market!

A must to visit a local night market whenever you’re in Thailand, the Pak Chong Night Market has all the local favourites you’d want!

From mango sticky rice to Yum Mama (instant noodle salad), grilled skewers, and trendy food like chili cheese fries, you’re bound to find something you like. The best part of all, they’re all pretty affordable so you can buy for and try different street food items without breaking the bank!
