Khun Sathan National Park

Khun Sathan National Park was established in 1998. The highest peak is about 1600m above sea-level and makes a great place to enjoy the view over the green jungle. Another point of intrest is Doi Mae Chok that is famous for its wild cherry flowers and also for the stunning sunrise view. There is a stunning waterfall, Khun Li Waterfall but it is not easy to get there as it takes a few hours hiking. At Khun Sathan National Park is a camping ground and there are a few cabin's (bungalows) for rent. Khun Sathan National Park is about 95 km south of Nan town, about 32km west of Na Noi.

Although all National Parks in Thailand can be visited the all year around there are some parks that close in the raining season depending on how much rain there is.

From March to June it will become a bit hot for hiking in National Parks.

For most National Parks in Thailand you will have to pay an entrance fee, for what foreigners have the privilege to pay 4 or 5 time as much as Thai people. But not all National Parks in Nan - Thailand do enforce the rule of entrance fee at all or the special foreigner entrance fee.

Remark : Since 2017 you are not allowed anymore to drink alchohol in National Parks, this thanks to people who can not control themselves while drinking alchohol and start fighting or being an disturbance to other people (or animals).

Accommodation : Many National Parks have some simple bungalows or rooms as accommodation or camping grounds. But not all, check before you are going!
