 Description:   Phu Faek Forest Park is home to rolling hills and a lush deciduous dipterocarp forest. Large trees such as the Makha (Afzeliaxylocarpa), Taengwood Balau and Red Meranti fill the forest, and squirrels, tree shrews, civets and hares also call it home.

In November 1996, a family noticed strange footprints in the middle of a rock terrace at a ravine near Phu Faek foothill. They later informed geologists who came to survey the site. There, they discovered seven footprints belonging to carnivorous dinosaurs, believed to have been alive 140 million years ago. At present, only four footprints can be seen clearly.

 

To get there, from Mueang district, take Highway No. 213 to Somdet district. Upon reaching Somdet district, turn right onto Highway No. 2042 leading to Kuchinarai for 20 kilometers until you reach Huai Phueng. Turn left toward Na Khu along Highway No. 2101 for 10 kilometers, then turn left into Phu Faek Forest Park for 4.7 kilometers.
