Erawan Falls at Erawan National Park in Kanchanaburi is one of Thailand's most famous watefalls. Named after the holy three-headed white elephant from Hindu mythology, Erawan falls is a seven-tiered waterfall and one of the most famous and impressive views in western Thailand.
We arrived at the park early with the goal of hiking all the way up to the seventh-tier of the legendary falls...
The first few tiers at the bottom of the falls were beautiful!
But an hour later when, sweaty and tired, we climbed to the top to see the famous view of the legendary seventh fall...
Well... it wasn't nearly as impressive as the pictures.
It is the dry season after all!
Erawan National Park is located 1.5-2 hours out of Kanchanaburi by car. You can take a bus from Kanchanaburi bus terminal, or hire a songeaew driver for the day (about 1500 baht or $50 for a full day).
Entry to the park is 400 baht per person.
The trail isn't too challenging, but there are some difficult parts past the fifth tier.
