It happens from the freshwater that has stayed in the swamp for a very long time until there is the accumulation of the soiled layer of organic matters, such as humus, animal carcass, debris of trees/leaves that slowly decay until it becomes peat soil or organic soil that is soft like sponge with less density but can hold lots of water and the swamp forest occurs again. The lower layer of peat soil is about 6,000-7,000 years old. The upper layer of peat soil is between 700-1,000 years old. Normally, the swamp forest occurs around the area that used to be the sea. However, in the area of Dong Yai, the prominent point is that it is the freshwater swamp forest. The mud in the peat area is black. It is surrounded by fern forest that is high above the head. It is the place where wild elephants are found to play in the water. Pha Daeng viewpoint and natural trails are the connection between Buri Ram and Sa Kaew province.

Just by doing this, we can have the beautiful nature to admire for a long time.
