Hidden beauty in Thailand
One of Thailand’s best-kept secrets, Huay Mae Khamin waterfall can be found in the forests of Khuean Srinagarindra National Park. One of the country’s lesser-known waterfalls, it’s especially picturesque this time of year when the changing leaves provide a backdrop for the bright green water. Getting its water from the mountains to the east of the national park, the waterfall stretches over a 1.5 kilometres long, the water travels over seven different levels before joining the Khwae Yai River below. The falls generally have water all year round, but in 2017, during the dry season, the river feeding the falls dried out completely for the first time, and the park was closed to visitors until the rainy season. Though the journey to this peaceful retreat might be long, it’s found a place on our ever-growing list of future travel destinations.
