    Thanks for that useful alert @Jakrawoot. Is it common for the national park to close during monsoon season or is this unusual? I had thought the worst months for monsoon flooding in Thailand were September and October, particularly in the northern and central regions. Is that accurate or would you say November and December are always dangerous?
