About the Erawan National Park

The most famous feature of the Erawan National Park is it 7 tiered waterfall named after a Hindu God and often described as the most beautiful waterfall in Thailand. The first three falls have large pools underneath where you can swim with small fish. The upper falls are more difficult to reach as much fewer people go there. There are some not particularly robust ladders and ropes in place to help visitors up the steep slopes near the top of the series of falls. To visit all 7 falls on foot takes slightly over 2 hours.

Other attractions in the park include five large caves the most visited of which is Tham Phra That cave because its only a short walk from a nearby car park and has some good stalagmites and stalactites. Ta Duang Cave, which you need to hike slightly less than a kilometre from Tha Thung Na village to visit, has cave painting of trees and animals.

There is accommodation and restaurants near to the visitors centre in the park where the minivan arrives. The national park itself offers fan cooled bungalows, but there is better accommodation across the other side of the Khwae Yai river and to the North of the visitors centre in the small village of Si Sawat.
