Khao Ta Mong Lai Forest Park

Prachuap Khiri Khan

This seldom-visited park is at the northern end of Ao Prachuap Bay. Exploration is limited to the 300m nature trail with a viewpoint of the city at the end, and the shell-covered, rocky beach. All climbing is prohibited. Dusky langur come down from the hills in the late afternoon and sunset can be quite beautiful.
