Only 10 days left before we heading to Singapore and I was out at night time again in the hope to catch more amazing night sounds!
Scroll down to review and download the album!
This time I went to the Doi Suthep National Park and I can tell you already. That was an intense adventure.
I left the house around 9 PM and came home almost 2 AM in the morning. I thought that’s gonna be an easy one. Driving across the park and stop and places to record. Easy right? Forget the easy part 🙂
Everything worked out great, I drove up to Doi Suthep passed the famous Wat Phrathat temple and the Phu Phing Palace.

All easy stuff on the main road but before you reach the Hmong village, you can go either to left or to the right. I choose the right way and the road got smaller and had way more bumps. Still not a problem. I looked in the sky and it was cloudy and no moonlight. Of course, I forgot my headlights at home.
The real adventure began after I reached Doi Pui campground. Because the official road stops here and just a small way goes deep into the forest. If you have an MTB, motocross, an ATV or a Jeep that’s fine but with my 125ccm city Honda its quite different but durable. But I was up for this adventure and took the road into the darkness.
Best decision ever because I was surrounded by such an incredible number of different sounds that blew me away.
I also thought at one moment its good not to watch horror movies.

Sometimes I couldn’t listen with headphones anymore because it is so intense if you can hear the cracking in the woods. All these thousand little eyes in the darkness looked at me and some of the animals probably thought. Who is that Guy? It was so nice to see all the fireflies flying around and listen to them “singing” together with the night cicadas and other creatures and making the forest to a concert. I totally forgot that I stand here in the darkness with no light at all and holding the mics in the air.
I also did several binaural recordings and in one of them, you can listen to how a piece of a tree falls down to the ground. So cool!
You find it in the recording Nr 09 starting at minute 2:00 but listen to the amazing sound in the same recording at minute 0:32! I promise you, it’s amazing!
Like to listen how a bat passed me? Go to recording number 12 at minute 1:10. The bat passed me on the right side of my ear and I recorded it binaural. Dont forget to wear headphones.
Because of the rainy season, the road was washed out and filled with heavy stones and dirt tracks. Here is a screenshot of it!
I was stuck in between two roads and I wanted to reach the other side. There was no way I could go back because at one time it was so steep and this bike could never make it back up so I had no other choice.
All what I thought was, please no rain or flat tire :). I had enough gas in the tank and finally, after 3 hours I reached Huay Tueng Thao lake where I recorded the wetland sounds with frogs and cicadas.
Before I reached the end of the forest I came across a flowing creek crossing the road because of the rainy season and it sounded so nice. I placed the H6 next to it and recorded it.
If you like to explore and record sounds here is where you should drive on Google Maps!
I have some “EXTRA” sounds for you inside the album. I called the soundtracks “Day Cicadas at Monk Trail” and “Waterfall At Monk Trail”.
Libby and I went on a hike on the same day but the sound is completely different.
Isn’t it so cool how the time changes the mood and the sound of nature?
