National parks in the North

Mae Moei National Park

It covers 185 square kilometres in Tha Song Yang district of Tak province. It is named Mae Moei national park because almost 50 kilometres area in the north of the park borders Mae Moei river.

Most part of the park is ruggedly mountainous. Average elevation is about 680 metres above sea level, and the area is covered by fertile forests. It is also an important headwater of Mae Moei, Mae Song, Mae U-Su, and Mae Slit Luang rivers.

There are a lot of rains from May to October that makes traveling quite difficult. The weather is warm in the summer. During cool season the weather is cool and pleasant and it is the best time to visit.

Places to visit
Mae U-Su Cave is a beautiful cave with a stream running through. Inside the cave are formations of fantastic stalactites and stalagmites.

The Headquarter view point is a good place to see the landscape of the park that is covered by mist in cool season. It is also a good place to see sunsets and sunrises. Climbing to this viewpoint takes 3 to 4 hours.

Mon Kewlom is another view point to have sun rise view over the landscape covered by morning mist. It is 14 kilometres from the headquarter and there is a campsite there.

Accommodations and facilities
Two bungalow houses, visitor information center, camp grounds, public rest rooms are available. Please contact the park for more information.
