Finally, we reach at Erawan National Park, the bus would stop inside the park which is pretty convenient.
Upon arrival, we head to find an area to put up a tent first. There are a lot of spaces for putting up a tent and the most thing that I pretty like is that there are many washing dish areas available here, as I have seen it has more than ten spots.
Tent that you see in the picture is the tent that the national park put up for tourist to rent.
The atmosphere during the night time would be very terrific.
There are a lot of available spaces left.
I wonder whether they feel burning hot from sunbathing or not?
It is evening time now, thus, we would cook something for eat. Well! it is prohibited to kindle a fire here.
We wake up early at 06.00 o'clock this morning and walk hurriedly to take a photo of the waterfall during the morning time where there is still no people. For those who would like to take photo of the waterfall with no people inside must wake up a bit early, as people will start to come here around 08.00 o'clock and it will be hard to find a nice area with no people in the frame.
We begin to take a photo from level 1, then continue to upper areas.
After we feel fully content, don't forget to keep the place clean as it is another way to lighten the workload of the national park officer and it also could raise our awareness in tourism which will lead to the existence of the nature so that we could admire it like this forever.
