The average height of the limestone karsts area around 400 metres with the tallest peak at 960 metres. Cheow Larn Lake in the centre of the park was formed when Rhajaprabhar Dam was built about 25 years ago to provide water for a hydroelectric power plant. It is about 60 kilometres from north to south and contains more than 100 hundred islands. Many species of wildlife exist in the park as do fauna with Rafflesia, the largest flower in the world, to be found there.
