Erawan Waterfall Kanchanaburi

Erawan in Kanchanburi, Thailand

Covering over 500 sq.km, Erawan National Park is surrounded by stunning scenery and houses the famous Erawan Waterfall. The park is covered with 75% forest and if you're lucky you might just catch a glimpse of an elephant, wild monkey or even an eagle.

Erawan Falls has seven levels dropping down over 1,500m and is regarded as one the more beautiful in Thailand.

You can walk to each level fairly easily on the paths but if you're aiming to get to the very top then it's a bit of a scramble up the cliff, although it's worth the effort.

You can swim in some of the pools created by the falls. Around the park are also several caves where you can explore and see some weird and wonderful limestone formations, stalactites and stalagmites.

The best caves to see are Wang Bahdan, Pratat, Rua, and Mee, which has five "rooms" to be explored.
