Phu Sang National Park  -    
 Known as:        
 Description:   Extending over 280 square kilometers, the Phu Sang National Park also shares a 30-kilometer border with Laos. Its rich, dense forests are habitats to precious plants, such as Burmese Padauk, teak and cigar-box cedar. The park’s gentle mountain ranges such as the DoiPha Mon, are the source of many rivers, nourishing the agricultural industry in both Phayao and Chiang Rai province.
Within the park’s pristine eco-system thrives a rare and endangered species of turtle, known as Pu Lu or Siamese big-headed turtles. Their distinctive long tail and large heads have left them vulnerable to the frequent forest fires. Visitors can spot them at night near waterfalls and creeks, where crystal clear water flows throughout the year. Other natural attractions include a hot spring, enticing waterfalls, caves and limestone mountains.
The National Park provides accommodation, camping areas, as well as convenience stores for tourists.
It is open daily from 6.00 am-6.00 pm. For further information, please contact the Phu Sang National Park, Mu 10, TambonPhu Sang, AmphoePhu Sang Minor, Phayao 56110, Tel. 0 5440 1099.
