Khao Yai, meaning Big Mountain, is the biggest National Park in Thailand and one of the largest forests to be found anywhere in Southeast Asia. Khao consists of evergreen rainforest, mixed deciduous and hill evergreen forest. The park supports a population of 300 elephants, which roam wild and free in the forests and savannahs. Numerous hiking trails follow the migratory paths of wildlife to scenic waterfalls - such as Haew Suwat where the film “The Beach” was shot. Dwarf and barking deer are easily spotted in the park, as are gibbons, langurs and rhesus monkeys. Here you can also sample locally produced wine at the two biggest wineries in Thailand, where you can also soak up the natural grandeur, stunning views of the vineyards and beautiful scenery of Dong Phaya Yen, UNESCO forest complex.
