King Taksin the Great National Park There are many types of forest: hill evergreen
forest, coniferous forest, rain forest, deciduous dipterocarp forest, and mixed deciduous
forest. 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.
