KRABI – Park officials at Thailand’s Hat Nopparat Thara and Phi Phi Islands National Park have prohibited tourists from taking selfies on the Khao Ngon Nak mountain top , a vintage point for taking a 360 degree view of natural beauty, for safety reasons.
Park officials said tourists taking selfies at the spot risk falling down the mountain.
A wooden barricade and a sign have been erected to warn tourists not to slip out of the restricted area.
Park officials are also deployed to keep tourists under watch.
Khao Ngon Nak is a high mountain in Tambon Nong Thale in Krabi’s Muang district. The trail to the mountain top is nearly four kilometres long and steep. The top is about 500 metres above the mean sea level. From the mountain top, tourists can take a 360 degree view of areas down below.
The mountain is also full of various kinds of plants, and well-known for its beautiful morning patches of fog.
