The first trail, located in Mu Ko Chumphon National Park, is scheduled to open “in the next few months”. 

Thailand is set to open its first “underwater trail” in a national park south of the country, as part of plans to launch similar trails across all 155 national parks nationwide.

The trails will include undersea signs detailing the types of coral reef and plants. 

The first trail, located in Mu Ko Chumphon National Park, is scheduled to open “in the next few months”. 

The park, well-known for its rich biodiversity, including mangrove forests, wildlife, marine animals and abundant coral reefs, is regarded as the country’s top diving site.

The Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation has plans to promote the trails in widely known sites such as Tham Luang cave in the northern province of Chiang Rai.

The cave shot to fame as the site where 12 young footballers and their coach were trapped before a successful international rescue effort was launched.
