Phuket Province - Attractions - Forests & Waterfalls

Khao Pra Taew Wildlife Conservation Development and Extension Center

22.28 square kilometers of virgin forest are covered by this park, which also actively conserves a number of wild animals; they would otherwise be extinct in fast-growing Phuket. It is a center for study of the environment. Forest vegetation are thick with creepers and climbers of every description; it looks like a Tarzan movie set. One species of palm found, the Bovernor's Palm or White Back Palm (Palm Lahng Kao) is especially rare. Langurs, barking deer, mouse deer, deer, bear, wild boar, monkeys, gibbons, and many species of birds inhabit the forest. Khao Pra Taew serves also are one of Phuket's most important water sources. There are two waterfalls of note:

Ton Sai Waterfall: A small falls over which pours a great volume of water during the rainy season. The trees, watercourses, and pools nearby provide one of Phuket's loveliest scenes. The park headquarters and a small restaurant with an excellent view are also at Ton Sai. Located near Thalang Town, 22 kilometers from Phuket Town. Go to the traffic light and take the road running east; look for posted signs indicating Khao Pra Taew.

Bang Pae Waterfall: Best known now as the site of the Gibbon Rehabilitation Center, a project to return domesticated gibbons to the forest, Bang Pae is a small waterfall with a shady forest and thick foliage surrounding. To get there, go to the Two Heroines Monument and take the road running east, the Pa Khlok Rd., 7 kilometers to Bang Pae. Look for the posted signs.

Sirinat National Park

This covers 90 square kilometers near Phuket International Airport and includes 13 kilometers long Naiyang Beach. The park stretches all the way to the island's northern tip. There are a number of interesting places to visit:

Naithon Beach (Haad Nai Thon)

Naiyang Beach (Haad Nai Yang)

Maikhao Beach (Haad Mai Khao)

Saikaew Beach (Haad Sai Kaew)

Mangrove Forest (Pa Chai Lane): is situated in Sirinat National Park near Ta Chatchai on Phuket's northern tip, the mangroves - saltwater swamps with unique eco-systems much prized by scientists searching for clues about adaptation and evolution - cover about 800 rai. Anyone with an interest in horticulture will be interested in the many unusual perennial plants found here: mountain ebony (Kohng Kahng Bai Lek), red cycas (Prohng Daeng), black myrsina (Sa Mae Dahm), the Lady's Nails quisqualis (Leb Mue Nang), and various creepers and climbers are among the more significant. There are also many mangrove-dwelling animals with unique evolutionary characteristics. A nature trail has been cleared for the convenience of visitors with signs indicating and explaining the various species.
