Khao Yai - Korat Waterfall
« on: March 11, 2010, 07:00:05 PM »
A friend of mine recently went to Korat, well, when I say recently it was when they had the Nakhon Ratchasima Cowboy festival going, so now I have loads of videos but no idea where the places maybe, anyway I assume this waterfall is in Khao Yai, wild guess on my part but I can't imagine it is a free one to visit so it must be in one of Korats main national parks.

So, where is it and whats it called :)

Yes it's in Khao Yai, quite a walk. Sorry but I forget the name. It's the highest I remember that much, quite a wlak to it but well worth it.

I knew the wife would know... It's call Haew Narok.
Are you visiting Khao Yai anytime soon?

I'm pretty much against the dual pricing of Thai national parks and most Thai waterfalls generally consist of a boulder in a stream, something we might call rapids and they call a waterfall, so was quite impressed with this one in Korat, plus having been to Yosemite park before the Thai parks tend to be a bit of a let down, though that picture I took out of a video and it does look pretty nice there.

DD I sometimes feel it's only us two posting on here at the moment! Where is everyone?
I'm personally not against the dual pricing, as annoying as it is I beleive they have the right to stipulate their own prices. We have to remember this isn't a developed western nation that has to be seen as being fair. I think the UK often does this to a fault but that's a different story altogether.
I've yet to visit Yosemite but heard great things so i'm guessing it's a tough one to follow but Heaw Narok is a very impressive waterfall by most standards.
I've been lured into to a 5km hike to see a "waterfall" on a few occasions only to see some rapids that i'd happily paddle down!

I have learnt a bit about Haew Narok :) there are 3 waterfalls, about 1km apart, ie spread over 3km, each one has about a 50 meter drop so pretty impressive, I remember going to one of the Thai national parks in Rayong to see a 13 tier waterfall, walked for miles and couldn't find a waterfall, thats when I learnt that the Thai words for waterfall and mountain are not quite what we expect out of a mountain or waterfall :)
