Kui Buri North was created by Geoff Potter
On Saturday I made a brave attempt to explore the northern entrance to Kuiburi National Park, I say brave because the road is still impassable except for extremely well fitted out 4WD’s so your only way in is to walk and its some walk: 3 hours in and 3 hours out. Not for the faint hearted, do not forget plenty of water if you attempt this.

The entrance to the park itself is about 20 KM south of the Pa La U waterfall entrance to KKC. It’s not difficult to find but its all along dirt farm roads and its clear that hardly anyone visits this site, I only know a few hardy birders that have been there. The single guard on the entrance looked decidedly shocked to get a visitor and advised me that there is no entrance fee, so that’s a plus.

The first hour or so is straight up and hard going, the forest is nice but there are clear signs of logging and possibly cultivation in the past. Get past the first few kilometers and things start picking up, the forest becomes very rich and bird life was abundant, I saw multiple pairs of Great Hornbills, Grey Peacock Pheasant and the secretive Spot-necked Babbler. In several spots there were signs of Gaur, deer etc, Gibbons were calling and several troops of Macaque crossed the road. At one point a tree housed what was undoubtedly the most butterflies I have ever seen in one spot, more even than in KKC’s famed stream beds. The forest deeper in is excellent and stretches of to the north to join KKC.

All in all it’s a tough spot to explore but the good news is that the guard told me that on the 30th of the month (November) the bulldozer will be grading the road and access by pick up will be possible. Well worth a visit if you feel a need to get out of KKC for a while! Herpers? well I didn't see any snakes but there again I never do. There are two stream crossings and multiple boggy wet areas if that helps. Camping, bring everything!
