It's indeed not very clearly signposted.

If I understood correctly the first day it was officially closed, was 27 February. We heard that upon arrival. Initially for one week. But because the situation hasn't changed it remains closed, I guess until further notice (or in other words: until rain!).
But that's the reason why there were hardly any people camping at Ban Krang the last two weekends.

What I do not understand is that some tributaries of the Pranburi river are still flowing at higher elevation.
I wonder if this water just disappears in the soil before reaching the lower elevations and therefore stops flowing further down stream.

Huh :(
Somehow disappointing.
Want to be there in mid-April - hope Ban Krang will be open.

I'm wheelless, so the only way - by taxi from the HQ, and initially wanted to stay there.
Now thinking about Panoen Thung, though it'd be tricky for me to get from there :)))

At the visitor centre you can ask for a vehicle to bring you to either Ban Krang, or to Panoen Thung. I don't know the prices. Obviously Panoen Thung would be more expensive to get to.
Still, they might allow you to stay, though maybe you can not take a shower...
