The Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation has started its annual seasonal closure of several attractions in 66 of 147 national parks nationwide. According to the Department, this is normal practice, as it closes several attractions every year for a certain period, depending on weather and park conditions. Dates are varied, and the closure is often due to extreme weather, especially during the rainy months that may create unsafe conditions, and allows for some ecological recovery time.

Some parks close completely while other parks are open but close only a few of the attractions like Caves, Waterfalls, Camping Grounds, Hiking Trails, etc.

For more information on which parks are closed or which attractions are closed from which date see this article in "The Nation" - Thailand’s national park system starts annual seasonal closure of attractions -or contact:
