Photo Essay of Phraya Nakhon Cave in Sam Roi Yot National Park
Every now and again it’s nice to get away from 301’s gruelling Muay Thai camp schedule; being that Sam Roi Yot National Park is only about 30km away from the camp it’s a convenient place to make a day trip.
The trek through the park is a scenic one. Be prepared for views of beaches, mountains, and forests; if you’re lucky you’ll even get the chance to spy some Dusky Langur monkeys playing in the trees.
If you follow the signs a 45 minute mostly uphill walk will bring you to the main attraction at the national park: Phraya Nakhon Cave. Inside the cave you will find Kuha Karuhas pavilion. It was built at the end of the 19th century for King Rama V in Bangkok then transported and assembled here in this cave. Be sure to arrive before 11am so that you can see the pavilion basked in direct sunlight beaming down from the opening in top of the cave. The effect is magical.
Here are some shots from my day trip to Phraya Nakhon Cave in Sam Roi Yot. Hope you enjoy.
