The end of the cliff
‘Hin Sam Wan’, or the ‘Three-Whale Rock’, is located in the Phu Sing National Reserved Forest of Bueng Kan province. Perched imposingly on the edge of a high, steep cliff, this trifurcating rock, when seen from above, resembles three whales swimming in an expanse of lush vegetation.
This place is recognised as one of Thailand’s very important geological sites. Around the site is a network of nine nature observing trails. The site also houses significant geological exhibits indicating that this area of Thailand used to be a desert some 75 million years ago.
The ‘Three-Whale Rock’ is also the most spectacular scenic point in the Phu Sing National Reserved Forest. In early winter, particularly in November, as the sun is climbing into the sky, golden rays are cast on the vast forest below revealing a magnificent vista that extends towards Phu Wua’s forest, Bang Bat Stream, Kaeng Sadok, and as far as the mountains in Pakkading district of Lao PDR. This breathtaking panorama reflects not only the natural fertility of the forest, but also the topographic diversity of its surroundings, inviting visitors to relish a first-hand experience with nature.
