Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park

In the previous post, I mentioned about moving to the new camp base from Thung Salaeng Luang to another nearby national park called “Phu Hin Rong Kla” which located in another mountain range.

The Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park has been developed to be a tourist attractive camp base. This national park is a notable historical former battlefield between the Thai army and communist during 1968 – 1980. All constructions during the fight are preserved for studying nowadays.

The national park located in the boundary of 3 provinces; Phetchabun, Loei and Phitsanulok, with mountain range-and-basin topography, result in low temperature, especially in rainy season and winter. The jungle is still plentiful and diverse of thickly growing trees, undergrowth and wild animals in tropics. 

We arrived in the late morning, after complete the registration at the national park office. We chose the layout to camp for a night (at least) and we will go up to Phu Thab Beok national park in the next early morning to see the fog ocean there. The officer informed us that the fog ocean is not usually happened in here, we better move and see from Phu Thab Beok which is located in higher MSL. 

But hang on!!, not every day you can expect to see the fog ocean. It depends on the weather and the rain (the ocean fog gesture in rainy season differs in winter). The officer told us that if the rain stopped a few hours before dawn there will have a good chance to see the fog ocean in the morning but if the rain stopped almost sunrise, so there will be only thick mist blinding us to see the fog ocean.

In the late afternoon after having our lunch, we finished the tent. The mist started covering the park slowly and the temperature is getting low. We saw another beautiful scene of nature. 

In the evening there was a big group of the cloud ocean floated nearby our camp base, we were much delighted with the beauty of the colourful skyline before the sunset. The day is done, time to rest to be ready for the next mission tomorrow. Cheers!!

I do believe in two things which makes people smarter, it's reading and travelling. I cast out my journeys as a backpacker with a camera, collecting beautiful experience alongside the trip. Meeting new people, learning a new culture, discover mysterious places, wondering how amazing of this planet. I'm not a photographer, but I love photography. My day work is an engineer, off work I'm attracted to taking photos and writing a story. Most of them based on my own experiences.
