Description
For those who travel to Loei Province in winter, you may surely think of Chiang Khan, a chic market on the Mekong Riverside with a lot of tourists going there each year. However, if you want to experience the cold weather, see the sunrise and sleep in a tent, the place that definitely comes across your mind must be Phu Ruea National Park.
Phu Ruea National Park covers the area of Phu Ruea District and Thali District in Loei Province. The reason why it is called Phu Ruea is because there is overhanging rock on the cliff that resembles the shape of a sail boat with the plain on top of the mountain comparable to the ship’s hull. The top of Phu Ruea is 1,365 meters above the Mean Sea Level. Tourists like to travel to Phu Ruea National Park in winter to experience the cold weather, make tents and do various activities within the park. Each year, a great number of tourists travel to Phu Ruea National Park. It is another place that attracts massive tourists. Moreover, the park has many tourist attractions such as Hin Tao, the turtle-like stone caused by natural stone corrosion. The Turtle-like Stone is about 1 kilometer away from the second checkpoint of the park. The most important spot of Phu Ruea is Phu Ruea Peak. You must walk up the mountain from Lon Noi Cliff for about 700 meters. The top is a view point for panoramic scenery. You can see the Thai-Lao border from the peak of Phu Ruea. In summer, tourists like to come up to see the beauty of the sunrise and sunset which are clearly visible at that point. In addition, its peak enshrines Nawa Banphot Buddha image invited from Ayutthaya. It is a highly-revered and respectable Buddha image of the Phu Ruea locals and toursists who travel to Phu Ruea Peak. There are also hiking trails through the area filled with small flowers that bloom in winter and Lan Hin Phan Khan Mak which is a cracked-stone ground with shallow fractures where you can find flowers that grow from within. The return route will lead to the tent area in the park administration area. Furthermore, there are many tourist attractions for you to visit and enjoy the cold weather on the top of Phu Ruea.
If you would like to travel to experience the cold weather in winter and still have no clue about where to go, Phu Ruea National Park in Loei Province is pleased to welcome everyone. Within the park’s area, there is a tourist information center, accommodations, restautants and parking space services. To travel to Phu Ruea National Park, it is about 48 kilometers from Loei Province. Travellimg along Highway No. 203 to Phu Ruea District, there will be a National Park sign at the top of the entrance road beside Phu Ruea District Office (Coming from Loei Province, the sign will be on the right. Coming from Phetchabun Province, the sign will be on the left.). From the top of the entrance road, travel further for about 4 kilometers to reach the National Park Office. The roads in the park are paved roads on the mountain with some steep parts. Please drive carefully and use low gear otherwise the brakes could burn.
