Dok Krachiao (Siam Tulip) Blooming Festival 2015
June 1, 2015 - August 31, 2015
Venue: Pa Hin Ngam National Park, Thep Sathit district and Sai Thong National Park, Nong Bua Ra Haew district, Chaiyaphum
The Siam Tulip, or Dok Krachiao, flower comes in to full bloom in the early part of the rainy season from June to August. During these months, the fields of Pa Hin Ngam National Park in Thep Sathit district and Sai Thong National Park in Nong Bua Ra Haew district will be blanketed with the exceptional beauty of these pinkish-purple flowers.
Every year, the Chaiyaphum province in cooperation with the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) are joining hands to organise a range of fun-filled activities including special sightseeing tours to see the fields of the pinkish Krachiao flowers and the rock garden, music concerts, trekking tours in the two National Parks and also booths selling local indigenous One-Tambon-One-Products (OTOP) items of Chaiyaphum province.
Located in a vast area, Pa Hin Ngam National Park earns its name comes from its location surrounded by bizarre shaped rocks. Here are various sizes of stone eroded by wind and rain over millions of years. Some are world cup shaped rocks, others are radar shaped ones, or even different figures which play on the imagination.
After rain showers, both small and large varieties of Siam Tulip species rooted deep down for years gets a chance to bloom, providing color to the park. In some areas, meadows can be seen due to abundant Siam tulips. These pink-white flowers, leaves and grasses offer fields of delightful colors. The cool foggy fields experienced at dawn are spectacular.
