National parks in the North
Khun Pha War National Park
Khun Pha War national park covers 220 square kilometres of area in Mae Sot district of Tak province,
in the north of highway 105 between Mae Sot and Tak.
The park is mountainous with fertile forest cover, which gives birth to many streams such as Mae Lamao, Huay Luek,
Huay Pha War rivers. These rivers supply much needed water and energy to the farms in Mae Sot and Mae Ramat
districts. Sandy soil, granite, coal, and antimony have been found in parts of the park.
The weather is mild all year round. The average maximum temperature was 25º C and the average
minimum temperature is 9º C.
During the cold season (November to January) the area could be covered by mist that creates beautiful scenery.
