Explore true nature and get to know the biggest forest over the upper central region

                In the past land which is situated on the right side of Pa Sak river, used to be an overgrown forest. Along with wildlife animals and greenery plants. Today, the changing face of the majority of areas is being cleared up for agriculture purposes, and to  become a land of plenty. Despite this, there are still many areas that were established as conserved forest. Including  a Wildlife Sanctuary, a Non Hunting Wildlife Zone to conserve natural resources and wildlife from being destroyed. Obviously this forest area is a heavenly place for nature lovers and outdoor study theory.

                It isn’t that difficult to explore natural forest in Lopburi province because every road passage  leads you to it. The best highlight is to go and visit Sabb Lang Ka Wildlife Sanctuary in Amphur Lum Sonti. This is because it I the only Wildlife Sanctuary of the central region in  existence, and the boundary is attached to the forest over the Northeast of Chaiya Phoom province, or Pung Hue mountain hills.

                So! what has the Wildlife Sanctuary National Park  got to do with it? The answer is especially, in Sabb Lang Ka, before it was told that Thailand had 60 places of Wildlife Sanctuary, among that areas about 10 places are put on experiment test and ease. Certain areas provided for tourist to visit and study nature, including building a residence, camping, organizing activity, or providing appropriate modern facilities. Sabb Lang Ka is among that category. However, there is always rules that need to be strictly followed when visiting Wildlife Sanctuary, and above all do not violate these rules without Officers permission.

                Today, Sabb Lang Lang Ka Wildlife Sanctuary provided with 4 different walking routes for nature purposes study. These routes include Hui Pik, covering 3.2 kilometers to go and come back, Hui Pra Do, covering 4 kilometers to go and come back,   Sa Song, covering 2.9. kilometers to go and come back, and Sabb Wai, covering 10 kilometers to go and come back. All these interesting routes offer splendid scenic views of waterfalls, caves, cliffs and greenery plants especially, the last passage that is connected to Pa Hin Ngam National Park, where Dok Krachiao field of Chaiya Phoom province is situated. (Dok Krachiao is a name of a local Thai flower).  Amazingly, Dok Krachiao can also be seen at Sabb Lang Ka forest as well. For those who wish to come and see this beautiful flower blooming across the field you need to come during the rainy season. Because this flower grows well when rain falls. 



                Today, district sector came up with a policy in using forest areas to benefit the local community, and also increase income in the  tourism industry aspect. This idea was  initiated to get local people’s attention so, that they all will come out together as one, to help to conserve the forest. In addition, the best way to explore this forest is to sit on a motorized cart, which is simply built and modified by the locals. Providing you with an unforgettable experience because you will get a chance to visit certain areas that are rarely opened for the public, plus an opportunity to participate in sensational activity events.

                Apart from that, Sabb Lang Ka Wildlife Sanctuary also launched a campaign to bring back local elephants back to nature.  Especially, discharged elephants which can no longer work, or elephants that are scattered around in the city, back to forest. This campaign has been carried out for many consecutive years and successfully succeeded. The good news is, recently, they managed to return 7 baby elephants back to the forest. This is a very good sign of the future potential  to bring more elephants  back to nature.

                I must stress that a Wildlife Sanctuary is totally different from the National Park. Therefore, if you want to enjoy your journey it is essential for you to contact with concerned Officers in advance so, that they can prepare a reception for your travels schedules e.g. help you to arrange transportation, get local people to guide you, or provide you with essential information over nature passage study, of which to go and which to avoid.

                Moreover,   Sabb Lang Ka Wildlife Sanctuary at Amphur Chaiba Darn, which is attached to Amphur Lum Sonti,  is regarded as a place where non-hunting wildlife of Khao Sompote, together with non-hunting wildlife of Pa Sak Jolasid Dam, is being established. This practical activity is more like a nature classroom for people like us to go and explore. It may not be as interesting as it was meant to be, due to the area space being limited, but it is worthwhile to visit.



                The non-hunting zone of Khao Sompote is of course situated in the area of Khao Sompote . Today, is also a residence for the last colony of chamois in Thailand. Within the campus itself, provided with camping area, activity playground, routes to study nature for people to walk around especially, caves and a variety of plantations. To ensure your visit experience the best things, you should contact Officers in advance.

                Not too far from the operation base, is a Temple called “Wat Thum Promalok”. Following temple visits, it received overwhelming respect from people who live in Amphur Chaiba Darn. Inside the Thum Promalok Cave you will find many sacred statues of Buddha images established.

                Finally, round up at non-hunting wildlife at Pa Sak Jolasid Dam at Amphur Chaiba Darn. As a matter of fact, the upper area of Pa Sak Jolasid Dam isn’t far from Wang Kaow Rueng Arboretum which is situated along river banks of a large size reservoir and that is what makes this area into wetlands. Many thousands of birds laid their eggs and hatch here. Because of this reason a non-hunting wildlife zone is established.


             To witness Pa Sak Jolasid Dam on the bottom part is perhaps in an easy going atmosphere. On the contrary, over the upper part of Pa Sak Jolasid Dam is a different case because it is a non-hunting wildlife zone and a place to study the real nature. Meanwhile, the district has implemented 2 route passage to study nature. The first route is Saphan Poon Board Walk which emphasizes the area around wetlands. The highlight is to go for bird watching, and photo shooting.   

                Just in case you don’t know, bird watching usually can be accomplished once a year. During the winter season between October –February is more special because birds are flying in from the North to lay eggs and hatch in the wetland forest, and Pa Sak Jolasid Dam is among one of the priority destinations as well.

                Above mentioned location is one of the Wildlife Sanctuary and other 2 boundaries preserved for non-wildlife animals hunting zone in Lopburi province. With this respect, the majority of forest areas are well taken care of for animal natural home places, as well as on important outdoor classroom for people to study nature.
