Presentation

Located in the province of Prachuap Khiri Khan almost equidistant from Hua Hin and Prachuap, Sam Roi Yod National Park is eqqentially known for the Phraya Nakhon Cave where a small royal pavilion was built for the visit of King Rama V. It is the symbol of the province. The park whose name means mountain with 300 peaks is located at the edge of the sea and has two white sand beaches, Laem Sala Beach and Sam Phraya Beach, not very suitable for swimming given that the water is often rough there. There are mangroves and a river where you can hire a boat for THB 400 and caves in addition to the forest mountains. The other most visited caves in Khao Sam Roi Yod are Kaew Cave also called Crystal Cave, a group of caves filled with stalagmites and stalactites or Sai Cave. There are also many animal species such as Duksy Langur monkeys and mainland serow antelopes and many birds. The park also encompasses numerous shrimp farms. In 1868 , King Rama IV came here to observe a solar eclipse.
Khao Sam Roi Yod National Park is usually visited in one day but there are accommodations in and around the park. The place offers many opportunities for trekking. We advise you to admire the beautiful view from the Khao Daeng Viewpoint not far from the park headquarter and take a walk behind on the road on stilts crossing the mangrove behing the headquarter. There you may see monkeys, crabs and walking fishes.
