A trip to see Phoenix loureiroi

Recommended Posts

I just had a 2 days trip to the western area of Thailand.

One of my mission for this trip was to see Phoenix loureiroi on its habitat.

I and friends wake up on the early morning , no breakfast because I think it should not take too much times but I was wrong.

We have to climb up to the top most of this mountain.

We found some of them stand on the high slope so noone can go to see more closely.

Some are blueish leave , while some are green. I don't know what is the factor for making them difference.

We took around 45 minutes to reach the top of the hill.

Look down to bottom , I saw many of bluish leave growing there. They look more bigger than the one on the top.

I don’t want to hijack this thread, but I can add two pics which were taken a bit closer to the palm (in its habitat near Hongkong):
