Phu Kradueng National Park in Loei province reopened on Thursday, six months after it was closed to visitors on March 25.

Around 900 tourists visited the park on Thursday, which is still recovering from fires in late February that scorched 3,400 rai of forest despite round-the-clock efforts by rangers and fire-fighters.

The park is usually closed for four months per year, from June to September. However, the fires coupled with the Covid lockdown meant its forested peaks were off-limits for longer this year.

Phu Kradueng is among Thailand’s best-known national parks, famous for its seas of mist, cool temperatures and rich flora and fauna spread over 217,576 rai (34,800 hectares).

Its diverse landscape features soaring cliffs, waterfalls, fields and forests, which draw domestic and international visitors throughout the year.

Park officials say that food, accommodation and porters are now on hand to serve visitors.
