The topography of the site includes both steep mountainous terrain and gently rolling hills. The site is contiguous with Sri Nan proposed national park (IBA TH008) to the north-west. The damper areas in the north of the site support moist evergreen forest, while the central ridge supports dry evergreen forest. Mixed deciduous forest is the dominant forest type in the centre and south of the site, and some deciduous dipterocarp forest also occurs.
