Khao Daeng Viewpoint

Hard work but worth it

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 4.5 stars

This viewpoint is quite a hard climb but well worth it. Take plenty of water, do not go alone, and pass on climbing if it has rained recently as it would be too treacherous. The trail is not very clearly marked. The climb takes around 45 minutes and the view from the summit is breathtaking, and you will also get a good idea of the havoc wreaked by encroaching shrimp farms. Be sure that you reach the true summit -- look out for a wooden sign there -- as a few decoys dot the trail! Highly recommended.

More details
How to get there: The trailhead is about 500m into the park from the southern entrance. The trail is signposted and runs off to the left. A small parking area is located nearby.
