The Khao Kradong Volcano Forest Park is a park located 6 kilometers outside the city of Buriram which contains an extinct volcano 265 meters high whose crater is visible. The place, formerly named Phanom Kradong
which means turtle shell mountain
in Khmer because it looks like a turtle shell, has three highlights: its Phra Suphattharabophit Buddha at the summit with a platform offering a view of the city in the distance, the crater often filled with water and the suspension bridge which spans it. The Kradong Volcano crater is approximately 300,000 to 900,000 years old.
If you can access all the elements by road, the most pleasant, but also the sportiest way to make the visit begins with the ascent of the Nakkharat staircase built in 1969, and composed of 297 cement steps (I checked by counting them when I went up, see my video). It's not an unmissable visit, especially if you stay in Buriram for a short time, but it's still pleasant to do.
