I didn't realise it was a public holiday! I'll see if we can reshuffle our plans and head up to Phu Khieo instead, and come back to KK the following week.

That could perhaps be a better decision, though I have no experience with Phu Khieo during public holidays, but it's more remote location and limited activity options for the average visitor, I guess it will certainly not get as crowded as Kaeng Krachan during that day.

Enjoy your time!

It was nuts in KK this last weekend, I went up Saturday morning first thing at 5:30am upon opening....me and about 50++ trucks yuck. To get to the top usually takes 1 hour, with all the trucks it took over 2 hours. Feel bad for anyone camping at the top this weekend, it was a total mad house :)

I did manage to get very lucky and iphone video (sadly my camera and long lens wasnt fast enough) a Wild leopard cat (Prionailurus bengalensis) in the afternoon, first time for me in this park to see this

On another note, Thor Thip trail is quite active currently with animal tracks. Even found a mud wallow recently visited by a Tapir, markings and tracks by a leopard, pig, deer, among others

Sounds like Yosemite before they brought in the buses.
