Description
Nam Nao National Park is one of Thailand’s most underrated birdwatching destinations. The exceptional visibility in the forest allows clear sightings of species that are normally difficult to see; in particular Silver Pheasant, Bar-backed Partridge, Red-headed Trogon, Blue and Eared Pitta, and a profusion of Woodpeckers, Minivets, and Barbets. Besides walking the main network of forest trails, we’ll also head out to the Ban Paek Pine Forest and take a 4WD to get us deep into the park’s Phu Gum Khao section, which has a mix of forest and meadow.

The Birdwatching Tours overview page has complete background information, including lodging and food details and a list of key species, for all our birdwatching tours.
