Khao To Phaya Wang Park

Say hi to the monkeys

More on Satun
A huge limestone massif with steep cliffs on all sides is the focal point of Khao To Phaya Wang Park, also known as “Monkey Mountain”, a relaxing spot for a walk and a picnic.
Travelfish says:

The entrance road takes you past a small botanical garden where dozens of monkeys greedily wait for their next bananas, purchasable from a nearby vendor. The road then winds around the mini-mountain, which we reckon stands at least 100 metres tall, passing a small recreation area with tables and stairways set near a human-made waterfall.

All around the park you’ll find towering trees, gnarly rock formations and countless nooks and small caves at the base of the cliffs. The narrow Mambang River runs behind the park, and a pavilion in a quiet corner makes for a romantic chill spot. You’ll also find a few food-and-drink vendors near the front gates. There’s also a bridge leading to a village of stilted houses on the river.

Many Satunian teenagers come here to hang out after school; don’t be surprised if they point and stare at the foreign faces.

Transport information

A motorbike taxi will take you here for 30 baht. If walking, head north from downtown on Satuntanee Road, take a left on Khuhaprawes, then another left into the park at the end. It takes around 20 minutes to walk here from Mambang Mosque.
