National Parks in the North-East

Phu Kao - Phu Phan Kham National Park

The park covers parts of southern Nong Bua Lamphu province and northern Khon Kaen province. Its total area is 322 square kilometers and was declared the 50th national park of Thailand on 20 September 1985. The park could be divided into 2 parts: the north-western part called "Phu Kao" - the pan plate like extinct volcano or bent land, and the south-eastern part called "Phu Phan Kam" - mountain range with forest land. Ubonrat Dam lake covers half of the latter.

Tourist attractions
The Ubonrat reservoir (which is also part of Nam Phong national park to the the south) offers boating and fishing activities. There are several cavs and waterfalls in the park.

Accommodations and facilities
There are guesthouses and a camp ground in the park. Visitors need to bring their own tent and equipment. Public phones and a store are available.

How to get there
From Khon Kaen drive to Ubonrat district using the highway no. 2 and 2146. Then continue on Ubonrat - Non Sang road for about 7 km to get to the park headquarters.
