Kaeng Sopha Waterfall, Phitsanulok

Beautiful Waterfalls....


Starting from Phitsanulok, (direction Khon Kaen) and about 40km away, there are a number of quite impressive waterfalls along route 12.

We discover two of them... starting with this one: Kaeng Sopha which is the most famous, and which is part of a national park. The entrance is paying.

After a few hundred meters, you end up at the edge of a beautiful river, the Kaek River in the middle of the forest. 

We stay there for a long time to discover and contemplate this fantastic landscape, these huge rocks, probably moved during some earth tremors.

Before reaching our waterfalls, a short stop at this cute place where young people came to swim.

Very beautiful nature, so green and so relaxing



Very wild landscape, very natural... but there is not much water.






The employees at the entrance to the park had warned us that there was little water

I discover this recent wooden staircase that I decide to go down and at the end of which I find my waterfall... a cat's pee!

it's the end of March, it hasn't rained for a long time... water is scarce so that's it... the small waterfall which is much stronger at other times of the year









  Vue Google Earth

In order to show you the environment of this waterfall, here is an image retrieved on Google Earth... you can easily realize the surrounding wilderness, and my previous imagination with tigers or elephants... was perhaps not so utopian.
