Mukdahan National Park

Mukdahan National Park is also now as the Phu Pha Thoep National Park is about 17 kilometers from the main city in the Mukdahan province of Thailand. The park covers an area of over 49 square kilometers where numerous high mountains seems to connect together to form small chain of mountains. These mountains are namely Phu Manorom, Phu Pha Thoep, Phu Nang Hong, Phu Lak Se, Phu Tham Phra, Phu Rang, Phu Kham Mak Mi and Phu Pong with highest peak being Phu Chom Si. The high hills of the park forms the watershed for three rivers of the region and they are Huai Rua, Huai Ling and Huai Ta Luak rivers.

The wide area of Mukdahan National Park is covered with hardwood forest and waterways with wide rock plateaus and steep cliffs. If you visit the rock in the rainy months, you will be amazed to look at the beauty of the mountain brought by the bloomed flowers of varied hue forming a beautiful landscape. The main attraction of the national park are the mushroom-shaped rocks, a scenic waterfall known as Nam Tok Phu Tham Phra and a grotto that has hundreds of miniature images of the Buddha. Don’t miss to visit the Fa Mue Daeng cave which is the home to 5000-year-old hand paintings about 8km through the forest. You will love to see the rock layers of Phu Pa Teub cliff that are miraculously placed on top of one other.

Mukdahan National Park is quite big and trekkers would love to move around the rocky cliff and plateaus to explore the attractions scattered around the park, its wild life and those bizarre mushroom-looking rock formations near the entrance of the park.
