Visiting Tham Pha Tub Forest Park in Nan
The entrance is about 200m from route 101 and the entrance is free. At the entrance is a information center, toilet and parking. The local park rangers are welcoming and helpful but they speak only Thai of course.
Before you start walking be aware that the walking trail is not easy and sometimes even a bit difficult to go. And that the trail is actually not very well with direction signs. So you might take the offer of the park rangers to guide your.
Also notice that it is not advisable to do this walking trail in the raining season as the "path" will be slippery at many places. For more information see Travelfish
If you are a cave lover and have seen some caves before you might be a bit disappointed so I would visit only 2 caves; "Tham Phra" and "Bo Namthip Cave". At the latter is a great viewpoint. And take some water with you as the all walking trail might take about 2 - 3 hours.
