About Erawan Historical Park / Erawan NationalPark

Have you ever wondered what a seven-tier waterfall looks like? Look no further than the Erawan Falls in Erawan National Park, northwest of Bangkok. The rushing water cascades over smooth rocks into the pool below. Along with the waterfall, spelunkers will love the many caves, including Phartat Cave with its stalagmites and stalactites. Don’t forget to visit Ta Duang Cave which has rock paintings on its walls and the Limestone Wang Bah Dan Cave with two levels.

Be sure to keep your eyes open for the local wildlife, particularly the elephants in the Taweechai Elephant Camp, and the deer roaming free. Get back to nature by hiking the trails through the lush forests. Remember your comfy shoes and a camera. You’ll need them!

How to reach

Tips

  • You will be given a small paper ticket when you pay the national park entrance fee. Keep this with you at all times (except when you swim of course).
  • The Erawan Falls are busy on weekends. If possible it is best to visit the waterfall during the week. Arrive early in the morning and you’ll have the jungle to yourself.
  • You will need to pay a small deposit to the park rangers for your plastic water bottle when continuing to Level 2 from Level 1.
  • Food isn’t allowed beyond the first level.
  • Carry sunscreen to keep yourself protected from the sun.
  • Ensure you have a change of clothes and a towel if you want to swim. It can be fairly unpleasant if you're not well-prepared for this.
