Welcome to Khao Phra Thaew Royal Wildlife & Forest Reserve


Tigers, Malayan sun bears, rhinos and elephants once roamed here, but nowadays residents are limited to humans, wild boar, monkeys, slow loris, langurs, gibbons, deer, civets, flying foxes, cobras, pythons, squirrels and other smaller creatures.

A German botanist discovered the rare 3m to 5m white-backed palm (langkow palm) in Khao Phra Thaew about 50 years ago. This fan-shaped plant is found only here and in Khao Sok National Park.
