“Phu Luang” means “King mountain”.
This mountain-jungle-area is very large with 850 squarekilometers. Our resort is located at the entrance to this area.
Here live in original-jungles, free and without any fences, more hundreds of wild elephants, a lot of bears, monkeys, wulfs, wild porks, some big cats, a lot of beautiful birds… and so on……
We drive you up with our pick-up car. About 20km to the top of “Phu Luang”-mountain. Through a beautiful jungle, till we reach the peak. “Phu Luang” mountain is a very big, very steep and very long mountain. About 40km long. He has a height of 1.650m (over sealevel).
During we drive up, you already see the first footprints, the excrements and the jungle-tracks of “Changs” (elephants). On the top we reach the last rangerstation. There is a restaurant, a coffeshop and some houses for visitors to stay over night.
We are your guide and walk with you about 3 km through the jungle and a “open area” to very nice viewpoint-cliffs. From this very steep cliffs we have beautiful views to the deep located valleys around “Phu Luang” mountain.
After a rest on the last cliff, we walk a little more to a place where you can see the footprints in stone of dinosaurus (raptors).
After we go the same way back we came before. Or if you like - we go another jungle-track till we reach the street where we drived high before. And call the rangerstation to pick us up with a car. Or walk back to the station. How you like.
“Phu Luang”-mountain is open for tourists from middle of October till end of April. So only in dry-season. Because on top in dry-season is no water, and the big animals move in this time down to the jungles where are some lakes. And so in this time it is safe for visitors on the top of “Phu Luang”. With a little luck we will see from a cliff wild elephants deep below in the jungles. And monkeys they are jumping from tree to tree.
During March and April (summertime) the plants, trees and flowers on “Phu Luang” are blooming. Very beautiful !!
“Phu Luang” area presents us too a lot of wild orchids !!
