The park's attraction are; Tham Ruen Thepnimit, Tham Wang Nai Phud and Tham Kon Than Long Sra Caves; Khao Kram and Rian Thong Waterfalls and Sra (pool) Nong Manora.
The topography of the park is dominated by Limestone rocks which were deposited in a shallow sea around 470 million years ago, during the Ordovician period. This rock unit was laid down over a very long period of time and as a result in places it is over 2,750m thick. Limestone rock is impermeable but is soluble in water. Thus over a long period of time water seepage through natural fissures results in the fissures enlarging to form a variety of structures and eventually caves. This process results in some fantastic landforms being observed at Phetra National Park.
