Ang Ka, which means Crow’s Pond in Thai could be considered as the highest natural water body in Thailand. Since it is surrounded by hill evergreen forest, the weather here is pretty mild throughout the year. Additionally, the organisms living in this area are well adjusted to such a specific climatic condition.

 

Ang Ka is classified as a temperate evergreen forest with a specific feature distinguished from the typical one since a peat bog appears in the middle of the area. Barely decomposed litter is accumulated in the bog and the temperature is low all year round. This habitat is inhabited by some rare plants and animals indigenous to this ecosystem. such as Rhododendron, Sphagnum Moss, Ferns, Common European White-toothed Shrew, Pere David’s Vole and Green-tailed Sunbird, etc.
