Phu Foi Lom is one of the many places you can incorporate into a day trip around the Udon Thani area as it is probably only an hour’s drive from the center of town, The garden areas are not massive but there’s enough there to be worth a visit with the arrangements being very nice and colorful.  Maybe an early morning or evening visit would better as in the afternoon it’s quite hot and not as enjoyable.

“Phu Foi Lom (Thai: ภูฝอยลม) (an ecotourism destination in Udon Thani, Its plateau is 600 meters above sea level, and it is a part of Pan Don Pa ko National Reserve Park.

 

The name “Phu Foi Lom” is derived from the lichen named “Foi Lom” Udon Info Directory Listing: https://udoninfo.com/udon-thani-directory/tour-destinations/pu-foi-lom-ecotourism-park/

BORNEO: IRISH TOURIST SAVAGELY RAPED BY 400-POUND ORANGUTAN

Kalimantan | An ecologist’s dream to watch orangutans in their natural habitat quickly turned into his worst nightmare after being savagely attacked and raped by a 400-pound orangutan in the jungle of Borneo.

Zack O’Reilly, a young 26-year-old from Ireland, who is presently studying biology at Dublin city University and has been a Greenpeace activist for the past three years, had always dreamed of seeing orangutans in their natural habitat and was a strong advocate against the palm oil industry, which is a great threat to the endangered species.

“ HE ALWAYS DREAMED OF SEEING ORANGUTANS IN THE JUNGLE. I USED TO TEASE HIM, SAYING HE LOOKED LIKE ONE AND THAT HE’D FIND HIS SOULMATE IN THE JUNGLE. NEVER WOULD I HAVE THOUGHT HE WOULD BE SEXUALLY ASSAULTED BY ONE ”

– KELLY O’REILLY, MOTHER

The young man was quickly brought back to a missionary hospital near Kalimantan where he lay unconscious for many hours and where doctors found traces of internal bleeding.

Kelly O’Reilly, the victim’s mother, says she used to tease him, telling her son he looked like an orangutan, but she never suspected he would be sexually assaulted by one, she told reporters in tears

FAMILIAR TRAITS

Kekbek Mahlouiak, one of the tour guides present on the dramatic trip, says he has warned various tourists to be careful around the animals.

“I specifically told him to wear a hat and hide his orange hair, that it could entice the orangutans. I’m not surprised of what has happened, I warned him many times. He did not listen,” he told local reporters.

“It is very dangerous for people with orange hair, the males get very excited. A male followed us deep into the jungle many kilometers, he was very aggressive. There is nothing I could do,” he added.

AN ISOLATED INCIDENT

A spokeswoman for the Borneo Tourism Board said it is the first time an orangutan has physically assaulted a tourist on one of their jungle treks.

“We are deeply horrified and saddened by the whole affair. We have offered the young victim a free tour if he ever wishes to come back again and will provide increased security for our travelers in the future,” she added.

A similar incident was previously reported in a Jakarta zoo in 2014, when a young red-haired woman was hospitalized after an orangutan broke out of its cage and tried to mate with the visitor, resulting in the death of the animal by zoo employees.
