Erawan National Park Day Tour

The beautiful Erawan National Park in Kanchanaburi Province is the natural reserve more easily accessible from Bangkok. Located 60 km north-west of Kanchanaburi along Highway 3199 and only 180 Km from the capital, the park covers an area of 550 square kilometres and includes high mountains and beautiful valleys. Its eastern mountains rise almost 1,000 meters above sea level, with steep limestone cliffs that protect the area from the eastern monsoon limiting the seasonal rains. In summer season the weather is constantly sweltering heat with high humidity, while in the dry season the temperatures are more pleasant. The period more suitable for a visit is between November and February, when streams and rivers are still swollen by monsoon rains. In the Park you can see some of the most fantastic scenarios of this beautiful province including its biggest attraction, the magnificent Erawan Waterfall. A deciduous forest covers about 78% of park's area. There are also stretches of evergreen forests and beautiful bamboo forests. The wildlife includes a lot of bird species, reptiles and mammals, among the most interesting there are: Elephants, Gibbons, Siamese Hare, Flying Squirrels, Eagles, King Cobras and Pythons. The main attraction of the park is its seven-level Erawan Waterfall, which is one of Thailand’s most famous and most beautiful waterfalls. Its top recalls the mount of the God Indra, the white three-headed white elephant Erawan of Hindu mythology, hence the name of the waterfall and the park. The waterfall is located near the Park Headquarters, where is also the Ranger's office, the reception centre for tourists, some shops and restaurants. Near the HQ there are two areas with bungalows, dormitories and tents; the one closest to the waterfall is the most peaceful and welcoming. The first level of waterfall is close to HQ, easily accessible on foot or by hired electric car for the lazy; here are a refreshment bar and the access to the 2 km path reaching the summit. The trekking walk takes about two hours, including the stops at other six levels of waterfall, and it is quite challenging from the fifth level onwards. You can swim at every level of waterfall, but the natural pools on 2nd and 5th levels are certainly the most beautiful and with water all year round. From 6th level you must climb the cliff to reach the final one. In addition to the waterfall the park has other several attractions, among these the most significant are its caves with prehistoric paintings and coffins, including the Mee Cave, which has five large rooms full of fascinating stalactites and stalagmites, the Reua Cave, characterized by a water tank shaped like a boat, the Phartat Cave, which has beautiful stalactites, stalagmites and a Eagle sandstone in the middle, and the Wang Bah Dan Cave located 54 km away from HQ and characterized a narrow entrance that opens onto a large hall decorated with strange limestone formations. Erawan National Park is open to visitors from 7 am to 4:30 pm everyday all year round. Admission fee is 300 Baht for adults, 200 Baht for children.
