Sak Yai National Park

Post by Egor » July 11, 2005, 3:10 am

I went to Sak Yai National Park located about 70 km from Uttaradit. The primary feature of the park is a Giant Teak tree (Sak Yai) that is about 1,500 years old. The overall park is about 26,000 rai. There is no lodging close to the park but you can pitch a tent or just take a day trip as I did.
The tree itself is pretty large although in 1979 a strong storm knocked the top of the tree off. Still a pretty impressive sight seeing a tree that old. According to the park ranger who was very nice and even gave me a baby sak tree the Thai government open the area around the park for logging in 1929. She said many other large Teak trees were cut down and harvested for their wood. The saving grace for the remaining tree was that at some point the inside of the tree was damaged by a fire making it useless for the loggers. The tree is currently the oldest know teak tree in the world. Overall the trip to the park was sweet however the area is pretty remote. If your around Uttaradit might be worth a drive by if you have some time to kill. I will try to post a few photos of the tree. Adios
