Khao Yai National Park is limiting visitors to a popular cliff  out of fear that “Khao Yai Fever” stirred up on social media will bring droves of people – and Covid-19 – to the Korat tourist attraction.

Park chief Adisak Pusitwongsanuyut said Friday that management had to limit the number of tourists at the Pha Trom Jai cliff after a post on Facebook entitled “Khao Yai Fever” showing an Asian black bear approaching a food stall cooking omelets went viral.

Nature lovers also know the cliff is famous for its beautiful scenery during rainy season, he said.

The number of cars allowed to visit the cliff has been limited to 30, motorcycles to 50 and bicycles to 30 at a time.
