Trekking is a way to really see the beauty of a country and at your own pace. There’s no rush of seeing it merely through the window of a vehicle or pass it by while on a tour. It’s great to be able to take it all in and feel the country beneath your feet as you go. Trekking is also a great way to get in some exercise on your vacation – but where are the best places to go trekking in Thailand near Bangkok and when are the most opportune times to go?[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_single_image image=”3177″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_rounded” css_animation=”fadeInUp” img_link_large=”yes”][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_column_text]

Kanchanaburi – Erawan National Park

Erawan National Park is located in Kanchanaburi that boasts a beautiful waterfall and areas that you can swim as well. It’s best to go during the rainy season in October to make sure that the water levels are higher as it can be disappointingly low if you go during the dry season. Trekking to the waterfall is a small challenge, so just about anyone can get access to it. There are seven levels of falls so if you want more of a challenge, you can keep going past the base of the falls which are only a kilometer from the parking lot. The higher the level you get to, the more spectacular the view, so it’s definitely worth the effort![/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”16px”][vc_empty_space height=”16px”]


Khao Yai National Park

Khao Yai National Park is a beautiful park in a remote jungle area of the country. There are day tours and tours that go for multiple days. This is a tour that’s wonderful if you’re looking to get away from the tourist-feel. The tours get you off the beaten path and to experience real wildlife. The tour guide is English speaking so there are no communication barriers, which is important when going into such thick jungle. This tour and national park is the best option for those who are looking for a trekking experience in Thailand who appreciate nature and the wild animals within it.

Kaeng Krachan National Park

Kaeng Krachan National Park is a beautiful location that is great to explore and meander through. Boat prices are reasonably trip if you’re more inclined to adventure via the lake. The park itself is quite large, although this park is more recommended if you want to spend a day with nature and aren’t animal watching as there isn’t an abundant amount of visible wildlife here. However, if birds and butterflies are what you’re after, Kaeng Krachan does have a lot of those species, so this is a great destination for bird watchers.[/vc_column_text]
