The landscape is complex, and contains some high mountains. The fertile forests include moist evergreen forest, dry evergreen forest, dipterocarp forest and grassland which are the important sources of water and streams. Wild animals found in the park are, for examples, bull, elephant, red bull, tiger, deer, barking deer, bear, warthog, and hornbill. Tourists can easily see the wild animals living in the nature, like they can in Khao Yai national park.
