The park is 1,200 metres above sea level in Khiri Mat district.

 

A trek from the foothill to the top is around 3.5 kilometres, with a 45 degrees gradient. It takes on average three hours to reach the top and get a view of the sunset, the sunrise, or sea fog.

The national park chief, Sawang Sithichayapornkul, said the park was popular with visitors seeking an outing over the weekend or the long weekend, due to the captivating scenery and cool weather. Some visitors camp there to enjoy the weather on the Khao Luang hilltop for as long as possible.
