Khao Chang Phuak - Daytip only

Hi,

We would like to go to Khao Chang Phuak.

We plan to rent a van and go there, we plan to leave BKK around 3am.

Would it be possible to hike Khao Chang Phuak all the way to the peak, but we will also go down at the same day?

If yes, please kindly give advice on how should we plan the itinerary.

Things we need to bring. etc

Things we must keep in mind

Hi Abdul

You will need to register with the park and travelling from Kanchanaburi to the park is about 2.5 to 3 hours and then there is the hike of 3 to 4 hours. So maybe you can schedule to go on Thursday and view the sunrise on Friday morning instead.

Hi,

You will also need a guide. And note, that travel time to the park is at least four hours, the last part of the journey is slow going due to the many curves in the roads. Indeed, it is a scenic journey, one of the best in Thailand.

Hey guys,

We are planning to trek up Khao Chang Puak this weekend. But we aren't sure if it is open now to hike up. The phone numbers I find online for the Thong Pha Phum National Park do not exist. Does anyone know the right contact number or the months it is allowed to go up? We do not want to drive until there to find the mountain closed for hiking. Thanks!!

Hi,

At this time of the year it is probably closed. The best time to hike the mountain is November thru February as far as I can remember. Which tel numbers do you have?

It is commonplace for the national park not to answer the telephone, I can speak from experience!
