Since its founding by King Rama IX in the late 1980s, the project has focused its efforts on restoring the area’s native ecology and conserving natural resources.
The Royal Project’s development activities have directly benefited the nearby village of Ban Pong Huai Lan, where you can learn how villagers put these natural resources to daily use. Trekking in Huai Lan pairs perfectly with community activities in Ban Pong Huai Lan and a homestay with a local family.
