This whole park is pretty well taken care of by monks, and, in combination with a generally low number of overnight visitors, it is a very clean area. There are rubbish bins along the trails, they aren’t overflowing, and they are usually small and discreet. In recent years many of the trails have become very well marked although it is still possible to venture off into unknown corners!
Thai’s dont mess around when it comes to climbing mountains, and while there are a variety of ways to get up Phu Langka, you are always going to be faced with a very steep set of stairs. Once you get beyond the stairs the trails even out and slope a little more gently during your explorations around the park.
Whether we go with volunteers or on our own, the Mundo crew enjoys spending the night on top of the mountain near the large pagoda. It is usually a bit windy but it’s a welcome relief from the heat, and you are at the perfect vantage point to see both the sunrise and sunset.
