Just a point of warning - I was at this site last Wednesday for the day and had set up a hide in the forest on a bend in the river. I was not the only person there - two different sets of poachers walked into me (literally- I had to engage both in conversation which was very strange) an hour apart. One pair poachers, the other I would describe as collectors. This was 11 k inside the the park.

I had a visit here last week and you no longer need 4wd - the road has been repaired, the stream crossings (which were the hairy bit) have now all be concreted and toilets have been installed.

Bit of a disappointment really ;+)

Would be OK in a normal 2wd drive pickup but def not doable in a saloon.

Some sad news - the birder who "discovered" this place and whose local patch is was - Tom Backlund - sadly passed away last month from a brain tumor.

He had been diagnosed just over year ago. He was very kind to me when I was recovering from my stroke and used to send me messages of encouragement from Sriraj hospital whilst I was over the other side of town in Samitivej. Made me smile.

A great guy with a big heart. Another sad loss.

As of December 1, 2018 the road has been regraded again so is passable by 4WD and 2WD with clearance (clearance is needed on the stream crossings not the road itself)  - zero chance with a saloon though.

The stream crossings beyond the double weir are still quite difficult though so in a 2WD you would need high clearance and confidence. You can park at the double weir and walk the last section easily (you will get wet feet), which has quite a few common mammals - on a morning walk I saw 3 troupes of pig taileds, 1 troop dusky langur, Lar gibbon, and giant squirrel, in the last section.

Even has its own sea of fog at this time of year.
