Phu Phrabat Historical Park

Phu Phrabat Historical Park

The National Park Phu Phrabat lies about 65 kilometres from Udon Thani city. To get there from Udon Thani, take the Mittraphap road towards Nong Khai, then turn towards Ban Phue after about 10 kilometers. From Ban Phue it's about another 13 kilometres to the park.

The park is about 5.5 square kilometers. It is located on a 150 metres high plateau which stands out from the typically flat landscape of Isan. This rugged sandstone hill has some small caves and niches where there are 5000-6000 year-old rock drawings.

The vegetation of the park is unique for the area. Two temple complexes on the hill are almost the only glades amidst the lush, tropical forest of the park. Admission to the park is 100 baht for foreign visitors, 30 baht for Thais. At the end of the article we have given the coordinates for GPS devices, and a map.
