Waterfalls, dense jungle and wild elephants are just some of the attractions that await in Khao Yai National Park. Set in the north-east of Thailand and covering more than 2,000 sq kms, the park is home to tigers, Asiatic black bears, gibbons and crab-eating macaque. With the help of experienced guides, it’s possible to trek into the heart of the park and feel at one with nature. Some of Thailand’s highest waterfalls are in Khao Yai and are staggered over several tiers, making for superb photo opportunities. Various lodges and cabins are located within the park, meaning your stay can be comfortable and include nearly all the normal facilities you’d expect in a top hotel. Trek through the forest on the 50kms of hiking trails, which range from gentle to genuinely challenging. It’s also possible to go kayaking, experience a night safari or climb an observation tower for breathtaking dawn views of the grasslands and wildlife. For those who want a break from the islands and temples, Khao Yai is a must.
