Tat Ton National Park (Thai: อุทยานแห่งชาติตาดโตน) is a national park in Chaiyaphum Province, Thailand. The park, located in the Laen Kha mountain range, features waterfalls and mountain highland scenery.
The park encompasses three peaks of the Laen Kha mountains: Phu Kaset, Phu Dee and Phu Youk.
On 31 December 1980, Tat Ton was designated Thailand's 23rd national park.
The park's most popular attraction is Tat Ton waterfall, 6 metres (20 ft) high but expanding to 50 metres (160 ft) width during the rainy season months from May to October. Tat Fa waterfall, at about 90 metres (300 ft) long, is more like a natural water slide. Other waterfalls in the park include Kaeng Huai Chan, Pha Eang, Pha Nit, Tam Here and Tat Bong.
Flora and fauna
The park's forests are Dipterocarpus (including Dipterocarpus tuberculatus and Dipterocarpus obtusifolius) and dry evergreen. Other tree species include Shorea obtusa, Shorea siamensis and Pterocarpus macrocarpus.
