    That's perfect Lew, thanks
    This is just a stop but would like to get down there by 10-11am and get a half day in and then if it opens early enough do the 3hr lake tour in the morning before i head to Samui
    I wish I had more time to take it in, but i'll be happy if i can get a few hours walk in that 1st afternoon and a few hours the next early morning

    Isn't it residential?
    If so surely it has to be open 24hrs?

    The website doesn't list hours but does list dates when certain treks are closed (monsoon season etc).

    I'd think the hikes and such would have hours

    Seems closest we have to a National Park thread ...
    The battle against plastic bags ... not limited to Thailand ... buy an item plastic-wrapped, gets put inside another plastic bag, then a larger plastic bag with other items similarly double-packaged

    National parks’ ban on plastics
    Starting on August 12, all disposable plastic containers, cutlery and straws will be banned from 154 national parks throughout the country

    From previous graphic, 944,200 for Khao Khitchakut, that park is about 30km from us, the main attraction a Buddhist pilgrimage site that is only accessible between 1st and 3rd lunar cycles each year, had seen news reports of over 400,000 visiting in those 8 weeks.
    Endless lines of buses from over the country, site operates 24hrs as many want to be at mountain top for sunrise.
    Some dedicated pilgrims walk the approx 8km of dirt trails, but most, like us, take one of the 110 (they're numbered) 4WD pickups to the temple halfway up, make merit, then a second 4WD to near the top, a final 1.5km walk.

    More from Khao Khitchakut National Park



    Camping - tent sites available, or these more upmarket cabins




    The waterfall is a tough climb, 500m, there are eight levels of falls, these can be seen from the road several km away. The track was closed beyond this point when we visited; it can be very slippery and dirty, rocks and ropes to help you on the climb. There are pools at the base of several of the falls, though not all are safe after rainfall - it is a long way down. Best ones are at levels one and two.


    Reservoir at edge of the park area (this one not my pic)
