Phu Kradueng National Park in Loei province is extending its closure until January 31 to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

 

 

Park director Samret Phusaensri said on Friday that it had earlier been closed from January 5 to 18 after the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration reported that about 70 per cent of tourists visiting Phu Kradueng are from provinces in the maximum control zone, also known as red zone, where a high number of infections were found.

 

“After considering the fact that the outbreak is still active in many provinces, the park has decided to remain shut until January 31 for the safety of tourists and park officials,” said Samret.

 

“Tourists who have reserved lodging and camping areas in the park can get a refund by contacting tel. 02579 6666 ext. 1743, or email: [email protected]

 

Phu Kradueng is among Thailand’s best-known national parks, famous for its sea of mist, cool temperature and rich flora and fauna spread over 217,576 rai (34,800 hectares). Its diverse landscape features soaring cliffs, waterfalls, fields and forests, which draw domestic and international visitors throughout the year.

Keep all northern national parks closed until start of bad smoke season, then no one will want to go there anyway. Tourism destroyed - mission accomplished =( 

 

Seriously, since when does people hiking around on mountain trails cause covid spread? If people want to camp just keep people and tents a few meters apart.

But Prayut wants to keep the "lets go halves scheme" up and running, 

possibly he should ask those from the Red Zones not to participate for a while!

I saw a recent article and there were around 3,000 people up there at the time, IIRC.
