Phu Chong Na Yoi National Park is the 53rd national park of Thailand. The area covers approximately 428,750 Rai, in the area of Buntharik District, Na Chaluai District, and Nam Yuen District in Ubon Ratchathani Province. The national park is a boundary between Laos and Cambodia. Most of the areas are mountains in Phanom Dong Rak mountain ranges. The forests are generally abundant with extremely spectacular scenery which is totally suitable for travelling and experiencing the nature.
Inside Phu Chong Na Yoi National Park, there are many interesting tourist attractions, such as;
Huai Luang Waterfall (Bak Taew Waterfall) is around 3 kilometers from the national park office. This large waterfall is approximately 30 kilometers tall and is divided into 3 levels. Beneath it is a small basin with white sand beach and beautifully emerald-green water. Besides, there is also a walk path to Pra Own La Awe Waterfall from Huai Luang Waterfall.
Phlan Yao Rock Garden is a strange-looking group of stones, which is generally and widely scattering.
Pha Phueng View Point is located next to Phlan Yao Rock Garden. It is a breath-taking viewpoint along the border between Laos and Cambodia. In addition, at the overhanging rock, there is a small cave with beautiful rocks and a big beehive for the tourists to see.
Kaeng Sila Thip is a large rock islet, which is situated around 3 kilometers from the national park office. The interesting thing here is a phenomenon called “pothole” in the rock garden in the middle of the river. This phenomenon is when rocks are eroded by whirlwind, resulting in a lot of round holes, large and small, which are peculiarly beautiful.
Phlan Kong Kwian is a wide rock terrace. At the front, there are natural shacks of rock with patches of wild flowers and plants in damp area growing alternately. This is a proper place for studying about nature and seeing variety of plants.
Phu Hin Dang is where the forest with strangely beautiful rock terraces is situated, such as stalagmite rock terrace, craked rock terrace, etc. The cliff at this mountain is a view point for watching sunrise in the morning and sea of mist during winter.
