Khao Nor Chuchi and some lowland tropical jungle in southern Myanmar are the only known places in the world to see a wild Gurney's Pitta. This non-hunting area is the last bit of remaining lowland jungle in Southern Thailand.
There are 319 confirmed species of birds in Khao Nor Chuchi and an additional eight unconfirmed bird species.
Crystal clear streams and pools abound in this lush tropica jungle. The Thung Tieo Nature Trail Network gives birders access to most of the area. Being lowland jungle, the hiking is easy.
Due to both rubber and oil palm plantations, lowland tropical jungle is mostly gone these days. Khao Nor Chuchi offers a glimse of the past.
