Erawan National Park
With its waterfalls and natural pools, the Erawan National Park, located not far from the Burmese border, is a paradise of water. It owes its name to the most famous of its seven waterfalls that seems to adopt the shape of an elephant (erawan). A superb hike, challenging in places, leads to the falls, taking you along the banks of the river, across suspension bridges and up the occasional mountain. The park's splendid setting is a luxuriant forest, which provides welcome shade and respite from the tropical heat.
