The park is certainly amazing and truly Nature in the most complete sense of the word! In fact, we have not been able to see animals apart from a snake and some insects; I was sorry but I didn't think it was bad since it means that animals are really left free and unconditional! I must say that although the guide for trekking was a very nice and very nice 65 year old with 40 years of experience in the park, for the price paid for the excursion I expected a little more explanation, instead he only knew 3 words of English ... In addition, our driver brought us to the falls, instead I thought there was a guide, like the ones we then met on the way, who pointed out animals and burrows to the people, instead for us it was just a nice walk !

The tour throughout is just the right to escape the big city

To complain is the announced English speaking guide. It was a nice Thai, but he could not speak more than 4-5 words of English. That was a pity, as I only expected information about the National Park
