Sri Phang Nga National Park, in Phang Nga province, covers an area of 246 square kilometers, stretching along a range of hills parallel to Andaman Sea coast. Most of the national park is moist evergreen forest and the low altitude of the region gives birdwatchers a great opportunity to search for some of the difficult to find species from southern Thailand.
A pleasant place to stay with good birding along the access track, along with a number of short trails into the forest, Sri Phang Nga National Park is an ideal place for those wanting to investigate an area of quality habitat seldom visited by foreign birders. Additionally, this location is a good place to relax amongst beautiful surroundings, with some nice views across the forest from the well-kept campsite.
Sri Phang Nga’s close proximity to Khao Sok National Park, Khao Lak and Kuraburi (the departure point for Ko Surin) mean that it is an ideal location to spend a few days at if visiting any of these areas.
Sri Phang Nga National Park is part of a much larger complex of forest which is still home to most of the large mammals characteristic of the area. Although species such as tiger, elephant and tapir are unlikely to be seen, White-handed Gibbon and Dusky Langur are frequently spotted.
