Description of Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park

Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park is located in Phitsanulok and Phetchabun Provinces of Thailand. National park covers an area of 307 km²  in the forested mountains of Luang Prabang near the border with Laos and is part of the Luang Prabang mountain rainforest ecoregion. It was declared a national park in 1984, as the country's 48th park. The areas surround an area that was previously heavily damaged by human activity. Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park has long been a battlefield that led to a great loss for Thailand. The mountain range served as a stronghold for the communists during the period 1968-1972, before being defeated in 1982. Their settlement and mass graves are still visible around the park area. Since Thailand government establish this national park in 1980 the nature began to recover and wild life started to return to this scarred land.
