This historic forest park located around 5 km outside of Buriram is home to Thailand’s youngest volcano. The summit of the volcano formerly known as “Phanom Kradong” is 256 metres above sea level. At the summit, a large Buddha statue Phra Suphattharabophit was built in 1969 and remains to be the largest Buddha image in Buriram to this day.
Steps have been built for visitors to climb the extinct volcano to the summit and enjoy the statue and amazing views. If walking up the 297 steps does not appeal there is a road up the mountain. About halfway up the mountain road, a suspension bridge offers a wonderful view of the scenery and volcano.
