Khao Yai National Park



We were away for five days and we had a wonderful time.


A pleasant walk near the Visitor Centre...


A stroke of a Samba Deer....


Then some dinner - delicious - stayed at the Balios.

Day One - Arrive at Khao Yai National Park

A walk around, visiting the visitors centre and stroking some Samba Deer.


A lady selling gifts for the temple - her lips stained with Betel Nut.


Then a walk through - crossing rivers.


Noticed recent bear marks on the nearby tree.


Then there was recent elephant pooh 


and footprints...


Tried to get a photograph of the Hornbills...




I can't remember what the names of these are but we made some...


Then we tried to watch the bats - but it was too warm...

Day Three - Early trip in Khao Yai National Park


Today we were up early...


I met some monks - always a pleasure.


Jemma found some tracks.


Time for some afternoon tea at the Thames Valley - not what we thought that we would find but it was very nice.


Not sure about the Green Cafe Latte though...


Then we went home and met an elephant...


wow!!!!!


Then we met another one on the way home in the evening.

Time to go to a show at Farm Chockchai but first an ice cream.


Then milking a cow.

Then a snack at a local market.

Day Four - Farming, a Wat and a local market


Up early...


The gibbons were noisy...


A male Samba Deer by the side of the road...


Then a baby Muntjac

There were so many Hornbills in the Fig Tree but I needed a real camera


Cross the river to look for the monitor lizard - we found him
