West to the vast tropical forests of Kaeng Krachen, rich in insects, mammals and birds, to coastal Krabi and the upland forests of Khao Luang. Then north and the 3 forested mountains of Doi Inthanon, Doi Lang and Doi Ang Khang with their wealth of wintering Asian species including 25 warblers, numerous flycatchers, thrushes plus Himalayan species.
