Erawan Falls is the highlight of the Erawan National Park in ’s Kanchanaburi Province. The water – an unusually clear blue in a country where murky brown rivers seem to be the norm – tumbles down seven tiers. Of those tiers, the first two are easy to reach, and the others require some sweaty uphill trudging.
It’s a blissful spot, however. Whether you get into the water for a swim, dive off the rocks behind the waterfall or just lie down on a flat stone beside the pool, the fast-flowing water cools the air on even the stickiest day.
Below are a few photos from Erawan Falls that I took while I was there in November 2011:
