Ramkhamhaeng National Park in Sukhothai

Ramkhamhaeng National Park

Ramkhamhaeng National Park in Sukhothai province is around 3345 square-kilometers of peaceful countryside, mountains (the Khao Luang mountains - the highest peak is 1,200 meters above sea level), rivers, waterfalls (including Sai Rung waterfall - 100 meters high), forests (mainly deciduous trees), caves (Taam Pra Mae Ya cave) and wildlife including deer, bears, wild pigs, monkeys, gibbons, squirrels, and of course a variety of birds - including owls, hawks and kingfishers.

The park is attached to Sukhothai Historical Park at its north-east corner and like its neighbour contains a number of sites of historical interest. These include a Buddha's footprint (Roypratputabaht) made of stone with a number of symbols carved into its sole. Because of their altitude, the highlands are famed for cool conditions throughout the year. The park is also noted for the variety of medicinal plants found there. It is also home to Siripong Dam, a picturesque dam built by a Sukhothai king that is still in use today.

Details: The best time to visit the park is during the cold season (October to January) while a visit to Sai Rung Waterfall is best in the rainy season (June to September). For those interested in staying at the site, there are a number of bungalows for rent (but these must be booked in advance) alongside tents at designated camp sites within the park.
Address: Ramkhamhaeng National Park P.O.Box 1, Amphur Kirimat, Sukhothai 64160
Tel: +66 5579 5734 +66 5579 7223

How to get there: Ramkhamhaeng National Park is on highway 101 at the Kirimat intersection. It is possible to get there by public transport or by renting vehicles, but the tours available in Mae Hong Son are probably the most effective way of approaching a visit here.
