The weather is cool all year round with an average temperature of around 20°C. Taksin Maharat national park is located in the Mae Sot district of Tak province. The park is close to Lan Sang national park, and it covers an area of 149 square kilometres. Taksin Maharat was officially designated a national park on 23 December 1981, becoming Thailand's 40th national park. The park was originally named Don Krabak Yai national park because of the enormous Krabak tree ( Anisoptera Spp.). Later the Royal Forest Department changed the name to Taksin Maharat national park to honor King Taksin the Great. The park contains amazing geological phenomenon - a natural stone bridge. It is also believed that King Alongphaya of Myanmar used to march his army through this area.

Taksin Maharat is a rugged mountainous park, often swathed in cooling mists. Thanon Thongchai mountain is a major watershed area. Evergreen forest and pine forest cover the upper hills, with deciduous and dipterocarp forest in the lower elevations. Wildlife includes serow, sambar deer, barking deer, golden cat, wild pig, and bear. Visitors can enjoy cool fresh air all year round. The nights can be chilly during the winter in the months of November till February.
