Another day in paradise in Ban Rong Khla
We made a great short trip to Ban Rong Khla that is located in Phu Hin Rong Khla National Park, just 50 km from Petchabun. Ban Rong Khla is the old settlement of Chinese migrants and a part of the former Communist Party Thailand HQ. Nowadays it is famous for the cool climate (1600m above sea-level), the vegetable fields and of course the Thai Sakura flowers. In the village of Ban Rong Khla is 1 kind of hotel and there are a few bungalows & small houses for rent. There are 2 very simple restaurants and 1 very simple shop selling drinks, chips and some food. Most people here go camping and take everything with them (like we did). Tarmac roads end at the village and all other roads that continue are dirt-tracks. In the dry season very well to do ... with a 4W-drive car. Forget going there in the raining season (unless you are on a dirt bike). In the village are 4W-drive trucks with drivers /guide for rent.
