History


Description

Nam Tok Erawan is the main attraction of Erawan National Park. It is actually a valley with a series of cascades formed by rimstone pools. The whole area is karstified and the water of Nam Tok Erawan is very rich in limestone. The limestone is deposited by the water and forms dams. The yellow and white of teh dams contrasts with the turquoise of the limestone rich water and the deep green of the surrounding rain forest.

There is a series of fall with a 2km long trail connecting them. The pools are very popular with the locals for bathing, and the place is very crowded on weekends and especially on Songkran (Thai New Year).
