A flatland amidst a valley, the Sanctuary is 140-846 meters above sea level. This virgin and fertile jungle is where Maenam Lam Sonthi originates and where the nearly-extinct animals

dwell. There are two natural trekking trails which are easy to follow. The first is from Haui Prik to Tham

( cave ) Pha Pheung (  a 3,200-meter trip with a total travel time of about 2.5 hours). The second is

Haui  Pradu trail which starts with a rafting trip to the 1,500-meter trail along Tham Samui Kui and

Tham Phra Nok.(total travel time is about 1.5 hours)

Places of interest along both trails include Namtok Pha Phueng, where water gushes down the high

cliff all year round. The steep trail winds through the side of the mountain to another part of the waterfall.
