A Perfect Guide To Thailand’s Erawan National Park

Kanchanburi was recommended by one of my Thai friends. I had to take help of Google as I had very little time on my hands and little knowledge about the place. And Google told me to visit Erawan National Park. Located in the Tenasserim Hills of Kanchanaburi Province, Erawan National Park is quite popular among tourists and locals alike. And the famous Erawan Falls is part of the park, which was founded in 1975.

The seven-tiered waterfall is picturesque and worth visiting. Truly nature’s best gift.

The seven waterfalls are: Lhai Keun Lung, Wang Matcha, Pha Nam Tok, Oke Nang Phee Suer, Buer Mai Long, Dong Pruek Sa and Phu Pha Erawan.

Due to lack of time, I concentrated only on the third waterfall – Pha Nam Tok.

This water fall is taller than the first two falls. I spent a lot of time in the amazing natural pool, refreshing my mind and body. It was indeed a mind-blowing experience for me after three hour bus journey. While swimming, one is bound to encounter with lots of fish. If you have time, try to explore all the waterfalls and I am sure you will thoroughly enjoy being there. It is better to explore the place in the weekdays instead of weekend as it becomes over-crowded.

Few things to remember about the park: Direct bus is easily available from Kanchanburi bus terminal to the park and it will cost you THB 40 per person (one way). The three hour scenic journey will take you through green dense forest. The last bus for Kanchanaburi leaves at 17:00. It is very easy to navigate inside the park, thanks to ample signboards. Plastic items are prohibited here. They really check your bags. Carry some water bottles and swimming costumes. Completely relax your mind and soak in the pristine beauty of the vast forest.

My Tryst With Mountains Of Ladakh

I set out on my journey for Ladakh with photography as my primary target. My five days trip took me to a couple of well-known places of Ladakh. I approached a number of travel agencies with a request to accommodate me with other travelers as I didn’t know how to ride a bike and for Ladakh you need one. I found that almost all the travelers had their own bikes and cars. Finally, one travel agency found a travelers group for me who were willing to take me in their group. Ladakh’s beauty lies in its dramatic mountains. With different shapes and colors, the mountains continue to fascinate visitors. I clicked hundreds of beautiful snaps with the help of my DSLR. But my heart still longs for the place and perhaps another trip is required to soak in the serenity of this enchanting place.

Welcome To Umiam Lake

Welcome to Umiam Lake! – Perhaps Shillong’s most famous tourist spot.

IMG_5114

Located 15km to the North of Shillong, the lake is a part of a dam built as a first Hydel Power Project by the Assam State Electricity Board in Meghalaya. The lake and dam cover an area of more than 220 square km.

Its pristine beauty attracts tourists from all parts of the country.

The lake justifies its popular name “Bara Pani” or the Big Water, as its size is bigger than the country of Liechtenstein in terms of area.

Apart from the scenic views, tourists visiting the place can also enjoy water sports activities ranging from kayaking to water cycling. However, I kept myself limited to enjoying the scenic views. The lake is also home to a spectacular garden named Lum Nehru Park. This place is easily accessible to the tourists. I took a shared cab from the main center of Shillong and it took 30 minutes to reach the place. I kept myself busy for almost an hour in enjoying the unparalleled beauty of this vast lake.
