Welcome to Phu Pha Thoep National Park
Despite only covering 48 sq km, hilly Phu Pha Thoep National Park (อุทยานแห่งชาติภูผาเทิบ) has a host of beautiful attractions – most famously, large mushroom-shaped rock formations. The main rock group sits right behind the visitor centre, and wildflowers bloom there October through December. Besides the weird rocks there are several clifftop viewpoints and Nam Tok Phu Tham Phra, a scenic waterfall (May to November only) with a grotto atop it holding hundreds of small Buddha images. It only takes a few hours and about 4km on the well-marked trails to see all these sights. Tham Fa Mue Daeng, a cave with ancient hand paintings, is an 8km drive from the main park area and then a 1.5km walk.
