A waterfall may be a dream place for many people, as it’s cool and relaxing. If you feel kind a stuffy and hot in the middle of a city, then let’s give yourself a chance of visiting a waterfall.
Speaking of beautiful waterfalls, of course you can find plenty of them in Thailand, including in Lamphun.
And there is a waterfall, in the previously-stated province that you may like and want to go to, as its appearance is no ordinary.
Koh Luang Waterfall shares the same area as Mae Ping National Park. It’s quite large, about 20 metres high. It consists of 7 levels.
It looks so beautiful. The water flows from the high cliff to the pond below. And, in the pond below, the water is blue-green, like a piece of emerald, due to limestone and stalactites around. You will totally fall in love with it. Just smell the sweet weather into your lungs.
Taking several selfies is a good idea. But be careful not to fall into the water.
Beside, you may want to have a picnic on the shore. Eating in the middle of nature can relax your stress. Whatever, just keep the area clean. Don’t make the waterfall dirty with your food and trash.
Exploring the woodland near the waterfall after eating is a great idea. This is a national park anyway. There will be many trees and some animals. Just enjoy it.
