Welcome to Erawan National Park

 

The Erawan National Park was designated in June 1975 as Thailand's 12th national park.
It covers an area of 550 km2 of high mountains and valleys. The eastern mountains rise to
nearly 1,000 meters with shear limestone cliffs. These mountains protect the area from the
eastern monsoon resulting in a low average rainfall. In summer the weather is sweltering,
but it is cool between November and February. The main feature of the park is the stunning
7 tired .

 

Deciduous forest covers about 80 % of the park with Pterocorpus macrocarpus, Hopea odorata,
Afzelia xylocarpa and Spondias pinnata being some of the dominant tree species. There are
also dipterocarp, dry evergreen and bamboo forest. Wildlife surveys of mammals, reptiles,
birds and amphibians have been carried out. If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of
elephants, gibbons, Siamese hare, flying squirrels, eagles, white-eyes, king cobras or pythons.
Fish, crabs and insect are abundant in many steams.
