Viewpoints in Khao Yai

What we say: 4 stars

While there are a handful of viewpoints along the main roads, by far the park's best - Pha Diao Dai - is located down a trail off a side road towards the south and further east section of the park.

In Thai, the term diao dai refers to being alone or solitary, and at 900 metres high, overlooking the highest peaks and pristine jungle of Khao Yai's remote east, the viewpoint is indeed an optimal place to sit and reflect.

From the road the park has built an easily accessible, 300 metre long stair and pathway to the viewpoint, and once you get there the view opens up from a wide, natural flat rock surface.

Keep small children close by as there are no fences and the drop is a very steep and long one.
