Taksin Maharat National Park is Mae Sot’s one of the best packaged destinations infused with delightful views offered by its mountainous terrains with their sheets of mesmerizing mist. Covering an area of about 149 square kilometer, Taksin Maharat is Thailand’s 40th National Park and was given this status in 23 December 1981.
Main Attractions of the National Park
Don Krabak Yai:
Initially the park was given a name ‘Don Krabak Yai’. The reason behind the name was that its forest cover that includes evergreen, pine, deciduous and dipterocarp has a gem of a tree called Giant Krabak which is not only 700 years old but also has a height of about 50 meters and a girth of about 16.1 meters.
It is a natural stone bridge, basically a massive stone that spans the gap between two cliffs. It has a height and width of 25 meters and is 30 meters in length, a stream that flows beneath this natural structure acts as the added boon.
The national park has a number of waterfalls out of which Sam Muan Thung is the biggest among popular ones like Mae Ya Pa and Pha Khao-Pha Daeng.
Accommodation Facilities Offered by the Park
Taksin Maharat National Park offers accommodation options as there are three bungalows that are available for hire which can accommodate about 6 to 12 persons at a time.
