The Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park, spanning over 98.8 square kilometres, was declared a national park in 1996. The name, roughly translated, means three hundred mountain peaks, which actually comes from the majestic gray limestone mountains in the park. The tallest of them happens to be 605 metres in height.
It is quite remarkable how such a small area houses so many different species. The Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park is famous for its parks, caves, forest trails, beaches, and more. It is in fact a sanctuary for all kinds of birds, animals and the rarest of them too. No wonder it is such a huge hit among the tourists.
Another special mention is the Marine Park of freshwater marshes at the Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park, which provides 11 different categories of wetland habitat. It is haven for water birds and a cultivation centre for prawn and fish farming. It is a wholesome park like none other in the world.
