Sublangka Wildlife Sanctuary
Located in Kut Ta Phet Sub-district, Sup Langka Wildlife Sanctuary covers an area of 155 square kilometers. A flatland amidst a valley, the sanctuary ranges from 140 meters to 846 meters above sea level. This virgin and fertile jungle is where Maenam Lam Sonthi (a major river) originates and where animals nearing extinction are often found.Places of interest along both trails include NamtokPhaPhueng, a waterfall where water gushes down a steep cliff year-round. A steep trail winds through the side of the mountain to another part of the waterfall. Nearby is the huge PhaPheung Cave which is the home of thousand bats. Stalagmites and stalactites are found in the cave which ends at the high cliff. In addition, there are two easy-to-follow natural trekking trails. The first is from HuaiPrik to a cave called ThamPhaPheung (a 3.2 kilometer trip with a total travel time of approximately 2.5 hours). The second is HuaiPradu trail which begins with a rafting trip to the 1,500-meter trail along caves named Tham Samui Kui and ThamPhraNok. The total travel time is approximately 1.5 hours.To get there by car, take Highway No. 205 from Chai Badan to Lam Sonthi. Drive for 31 kilometers. Turn towards Kud Ta Phet Sub-district and proceed for another 37 kilometers. Please note that visitors are allowed only to certain areas.
