Klong Khao Daeng Boat Trip, Pranburi
Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park covers an area of 61,300 rai. The terrain is limestone mountains in the Perimian Age about 280-230 million years ago. Mixed with coastal plains, lagoons and shallow waters And islands lined near the coast, up to 30 kilometers.
Fresh water flows down through Klong Khao Daeng to the sea.
Another highlight of the geography is the water plains on the west side of the park or called Sam Roi Yot fields. The former is a bay that contacts the sea. It was later blocked by sediment and sand dunes. And fill up with the fresh water from the land. The sediment is more and more gradually become a brackish water and freshwater fields, respectively. The water level in the fields is 3 meters. The fresh water from the mountains and creeks has drained through Klong Khao Daeng to the sea.
