|ERAWAN NATIONAL PARK
Thailand has over 100 national parks. and the most visited of them all is Erawan. An hour and a half drive northwest of Kanchanaburi. Flocks of seven-tiered waterfall that gives the 550 square kilometre park its name. The top level of the falls is thought to resemble a three-headed elephant, called "Erawan" in Thai, that is ridden by Indra in Hindu mythology. With milky turquoise waters tumbling over various cascades, the falls are wonderfully photogenic and thought by many to be Thailand's most beautiful. Several of the pools below the falls are ideal for bathing in, especially level two, and they are much less crowded on weekdays. About 10 km. beyond the park headquarters is Tham Pludthat a large cave adorned with beautiful stalactites.
SRINAGARINDRA NATIONAL PARK
Located just north of Erawan National Park, this park covers over 1,500 square kilometres. Since it is more if difficult to get to than Erman. it is less frequently visited, but nonetheless has some very special attractions, including Namtok Huai Mae Khamin, which also has seven levels and is a close contender to Namtok Eraawn for sheer beauty. As at Erawan, the water is generally a lovely pale green, but here it runs over caramel-coloured rockface, and there is a superb viewing spot directly in front. The easiest way to get to the falls is by a two-hour boat journey across the Srinagarindra Reservoir.
