On the night of October 19, Yann Muzika of The Wilderness Alternative and I drove up to Doi Inthanon, one of the most popular places for birding in northern Thailand. Our first mission was to look for the famous Brown Wood Owl family that was showing around the 2nd Checkpoint.

It wasn’t all that easy. The wood owls usually come out to feed on horned beetles that only appear after the rain. It had been completely dry for several days before our arrive.

A nice place to have a walk and if looking for some nice nature or landscape shots a nice park. It is located northern end of Phuket Island and on the east side. There is a small fee and a large parking lot. There is a small vendor selling drinks and snacks.  This is the only rain forest left on Phuket and has 2 waterfalls. Neither are very big but still nice to see and photo. The trails are pretty wild and suggest boots. I read where a Thai hiker was attacked by gibbons hiking.  I have hiked there and never a problem but be watchful.  A great source for more info and how to get there is Phuket National Parks   I first visited the park in 2010 and my then again 2013. They are doing some nice improvements.
