In the heart of Sam Roi Yot National Park sits a spectacular view point that visitors in the area definitely don’t want to miss. The best way to enter is through the main entrance on Petchkasem Road – give it a quick search on Google Maps and it should pop up.
We’re going to be honest: the path to Khao Daeng view point isn’t all fun and games – there are no clearly paved steps and it’s a beaten path from past hikers. So get your trainers on, throw on some mosquito repellent and prepare for a sweaty hike!
The hike takes about 30-45 minutes in total through a foresty path. Don’t be surprised if you are joined by some monkeys or local wildlife trying to make friends.
After a 322 meter climb, look for the Khao Daeng view point sign placed in the rocks. You’ll be stunned by the amazing 360 views of Pranburi there. In the distance, you’ll spot the full view on the iconic Sam Roi Yot peaks – safe to say, it’s a pretty amazing silhouette.
We recommend setting off early or before dusk to catch that sunrise/sunset. Plus, the heat is scorching up there so it’s best to avoid midday!
