The environmental activity “Phu Kradueng Go Green, Go Clean, Go Grow” is back for its second edition at Phu Kradueng National Park in Loei province this Thursday and Friday (May 31 and June 1).



Highlights include cleaning up the Phu Kradueng National Park and planting saplings. Participants can also enjoy the “Long Do Loei” workshops that explain the province’s unique way of life.

The top plateau of Phu Kradueng is blessed with beautiful scenery, a lush pine forest, indigenous wild flowers and a cool climate, making it a place where hikers like to camp to catch the spectacular first light of day or the sun dipping into the horizon in the evening.

Climbing to the summit of Phu Kradueng requires stamina and endurance to conquer the rise in elevation that reaches an altitude of 1,325 metres and is considered a rite of passage for many Thai trekkers.

Other attractions include Pha Nok Aen, a cliff that offers a breathtaking view of the sunrise, Pha Lom Sak, a sandstone ledge jutting into space providing a terrific view of the hills and valleys, and Pha Yiap Mek, where cottony clouds suggest a misty world of shadow figures.

Limited to 200 participants, the event is now open for registration on the Facebook Page: TAT Loei office or via Fax: (041) 811 480. 

Admission is Bt300 per person featuring one night’s accommodation, dinner on May 31 and breakfast on June 1.

For more information, contact the TAT Loei Office at (042) 812 812 and (042) 811 405, or email: tatloei@tat.or.th.
