Incredible & Historical Rock Formations
Must do in Udon Thani!
It’s about 2 hours drive from the town. And it’s best if you had your own transport, or hire someone to drive you.
It was generally quiet with not too many people when I visited.
Bring along a hat or umbrella to help provide shade from the sun. Going earlier may also allow you to escape from the intensity of the afternoon sun.
The toilets at the entrance are very clean and modern. There’s also a shop that sells some snacks and drinks at very reasonable prices.
Interesting site and worth the drive to get there
It was great to have a Thai guide who worked in the park who explained much of the history to our driver who could then translate into English for us.
The site dates back hundreds of years and helps to give some understanding of the people who lived then in earlier times.
Great Hiking Trail, Signs need a synchronized update
When I did enter I got a plan and they said it will take me two hours all the way up to the top, and yes maybe depends how much time you will spend at the different sights and stone formations.
I took it as a hiking trail as it was mostly in the shade the trails are straight and the plan guided me thru, it was a really good 2-3 hour hiking trail in nature with some rocks!
The plan is not always helpful when you want to follow the rock formations and names and so on, even more confusing the Thai guide and the English guide have different numbers so the sighs to do correspond well.
All in all a nice get away from cities and noise into nature and walking up and down, with some funny stone houses and formations.
Take water with you as there is no stand in the park, only in front.
