Jungle Trekking in Pak Chong

After the hustle of Bangkok, we decided it was time to reconnect a little bit nature and so we travel to Pak Chong, and more specifically, to Khao Yai National Park. The park is beautiful and home to a few wild elephants, apparently just one crocodile, and many many monkeys and deer. We went on a jungle trek for a day, met some wonderful people, and enjoyed trekking. We also went to a cave to visit the thousands of bats that inhabit it, and watch them leave at sunset to feed. This was a spectacular sight! Every single bat leaves the cave at the same time and you can see a “river” of bats against the fading sun.
