Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park

The park has many different terrains including waterfalls, lush forests, and plains of rocks with the highest point in the park at 1,617 meters above sea level. There are different types of rock formations with splits in the rocky grounds and uneven formations. The park offers the opportunity to explore many of its historical sites that staged the conflict of two political parties. During 1967-1982, Phu Hin Rong Kla was the headquarters of the Communist Party of Thailand. The area was deemed a red zone by the government and became a battlefield between the Royal Thai Army and the Communist Party for 15 years. Phu Hin Rong Kla was a strategic location due to its mountainous areas which were great for defenses. The conflict ended in 1982 when the government granted amnesty to the students who join the Communist Party of Thailand, resulting in Phu Hin Rong Kla becoming a national park in 1984. Visitors are able to witness the rustic meeting hall, political school, and the administration building. A trail leading to Lan Hin Pum contains rock formations where Communist Party students used them as shelter from air bombing. The nearby headquarters is now a museum that exhibits weapons and medical instruments used by the Communist Party members. Another trail leads to Pha Chu Thong where the Communist Party’s red victory flag is situated. Tourists and visitors may stay overnight with accommodations and tents available but you are advised to make reservations.
