Thailand Photos: Huay Yang waterfall national park and Had Wanakorn marine park in Prachuap Kirikhan province: 23 - 24 April 2005

Huay Yang park - Khao Luang mountain  Namtok Hyau Yang national park
Namtok Huay Yang national park is about 5 km from Huay Yang district in Prachuap Kirikhan province. From Bangkok use highway number 4 to Huay Yang and get off from the bus near an overhead crossing bridge. A side road on the west (right side of highway) will take you 5 km to to the park entrance. You can wait for a motorcycle taxi.

In April 2005, there were little water in the fall. Visitors were not allowed to go beyong level 5. A 7 km trail leads to the 1251 meters high Khao Luang peak close to the border. Climbing trip needs two days including a night camping near the peak. Permit is required and it is difficult to know well ahead the time you could go due to security matters at the Thai - Myanmar border.

Camping in tents near the headquarters
Park's officials did not allow us to camp far in the forest. We pitched our tents in the camp ground near the dry stream not far from the headquarters. Public toilets and few restaurants were available. You could also do cooking yourselves. Staying in one of the park's bungalows is also possible.

Had Wannakorn marine national park  Koh Chaan and Koh Tai Se
Had Wanakon marine national park entrance is less than 10 km to the north of Huay Yang on highway 4. From the entrance it is 3.2 km to (the east) the headquarters and the beach on the Gulf of Thailand. The park can arrange diving trip to the nearby twin islands called Koh Chaan and Koh Tai Se (right picture above).

Wannakorn beach  Wannakorn beach
It is possible to pitch your tents for overnight camping under the trees closeby the beach. Bungalows are also available for rent. Public rest rooms, restaurants, and a small museum are provided. The marine park keeps a small area containing a network of walking trails.
