Exploring the Park’s Headquarters

The headquarters of Khao Lak–Lam Ru National Park is located on the headland of Leam Hin Chang, about 50 meters off Highway 4 just south of Khao Lak. Once you enter the grounds, you’ll find that there are quite a few things you can do to keep yourself busy. You can take the path to your left that leads down to a wonderful viewpoint and ultimately to a small but beautiful sandy ‘Lek Beach’. This could be quite a walk, so you’re advised to take along sufficient drinking water, a pair of good shoes and some insect repellent. But eventually, you will be rewarded by the refreshing seclusion and the beautiful coral of the beach. For something more sedate, you can head to the restaurant lying just a few meters from the main gate. A delicious meal paired with delightful hillside views across the Andaman Sea will make your day all the more memorable.
