เที่ยวภูกระดึง (Trip Phu Kra Dueng)

My First time at Phu Kra Dueng , Loei Province, Thailand

เป็นครั้งแรกในชีวิตที่ได้เดินทางไปเที่ยวภูกระดึง ที่ซึ่งเรียกได้ว่า โหด มันส์ ฮา สนุก และได้ชื่นชมกับธรรมชาติท่ามกลางอากาศที่บริสุทธิ์และหนาวเย็น ในช่วงเดืิอนพฤศจิกายน 2551 การเดินทางของสามสาวที่แสนจะตื่นเต้น ประสบการณ์นี้คงไม่มีวันลืม และอยากจะให้ทุกคนที่ไม่เคยไปได้ไปเยือนและดื่มด่ำกับบรรกาศดีๆ พร้อมกับความสวยงามของธรรมชาติแท้ๆ…………..ภูกระดึงแห่งความทรงจำ

Phu Kradueng National Park (Thai: อุทยานแห่งชาติภูกระดึง), located in Amphoe Phu Kradueng of the Loei Province, is one of the famous national parks of Thailand, with a high point of 1360 m. Every year tens of thousands of people come to make the climb up this famous mountain. It received the title of a nationally protected forest in the year 1943, and was proclaimed a national park on the 7th of October 1959, the second national park of Thailand after Khao Yai National Park.

3 nights 4 days at Phu Kra Dueng was one of the wonderful trips I have just made last year with my lovely sister. The beautiful and serenity of nature has compensated for the rough trek uphill. Unseen Thailand with 3 girls in wonderful land….very impress

Picture: Sum Hake (ซำแฮก)

The word Hake (แฮก) most travelers believe this means to be out of breath, because of its resemblance to the sound made when out of breath. The real meaning of Hake (แฮก) is sacred or holy object in the local dialect. This plateau is approximately one kilometre from the bottom.

There are many places to rest on the way up. These rest plateaus are called Sum (ซำ). There are seven of these plateaus on the way up. In order of ascent, they are:

  • Sum Hake (ซำแฮก)
  • Sum Bawn (ซำบอน) This plateau is approximately 700 metres from Sum Hake.
  • Sum Kok Kawk (ซำกกกอก) This plateau is approximately 360 metres from Sum Bawn.
  • Sum Kokwaa (ซำกกหว้า) This plateau is approximately 880 metres from Sum Kok Kawk.
  • Sum Kokpai (ซำกกไผ่) This plateau is approximately 580 metres from Sum Kokwaa
  • Sum Kok Doon (ซำกกโดน) This plateau is approximately 300 metres from Sum Kokpai.
  • Sum Krae (ซำแคร่) This plateau is approximately 585 metres from Sum Kok Doon.

ไปดูพระอาทิตย์ตกที่ผาหมากดูก

This cliff is located on the west side of the mountain. It is located approximately 2 kilometres from the campsite and tourist office. Travelers who have little time come here to watch the sunset, due to its closeness to the campsite.
