Erawan National Park - Kanchanaburi

In 2006 we visited the 200 square mile Erawan National Park, situated in the Western Thailand province of Kanchanaburi. The major attraction of the park is the seven-tiered Erawan Falls, a waterfall named after the erawan, the three-headed white elephant of Hindu mythology.
Unfortunately the park operated the 'falang price' system, so all foreigners were obliged to pay 400 baht, whereas Thai nationals only paid 40 baht.

The falls are spectacular, the water clear and cool, and anyone wanting to refresh themselves after climbing to the top tier can bathe in the pools.

There are many fish in some of the pools, some as large as 5 kg or so, and they like to nip you, but they won't (hopefully) draw blood!
