National Parks in Loei
The major attractions in Loei Province are its three large national parks: Phu Kradueng National Park, Phu Rua National Park and Phu Luang National Park. All three parks feature mountains with elevations from 1,300 to 1,500 metres above sea level, large forests, and a wide range of animal, bird and plant life.
Cooler Weather in Loei
Because of the elevations, the temperature in these national parks is considerably lower than sea level, dropping to just above freezing at night in some locations at some times of the year. The cooler temperature makes it pleasant to camp, which is permitted in designated areas within all 3 parks, and to undertake more strenuous activities like hiking and mountain biking that it would be much too hot for most people to want to do in low lying parts of Thailand. The more temperate climates at the highest elevations also allow different species of plants, trees and animals to thrive and visitors can marvel at the changing flora and fauna as they walk up the hills of these national parks.
