Parts of Erawan Waterfall closed as tourists injured

Published

 on 

The Erawan National Waterfall officials have closed off the tier 6 and 7 levels of the popular waterfall due to continuous rain up to the weekend which made the hiking trail extremely slippery. Some tourists slipped and were injured.

On Sunday there were many tourists slipping while on their way to tier 6 and 7 of the waterfall. A rescue team was called in to find and recover the injured tourists from the waterfall’s slippery tracks.

The Erawan Waterfall is inside the Erawan national Park located in Kanchanaburi Province, north-west of Bangkok.

There was continuous rain around the Erawan Waterfall region over the last week. The trail that leads to tier 6 and tier 7 has become muddy and slippery. Park officials say they will re-open the Tiers 6 and 7 when the mud has dried out and the pathway safe for hiking again. The water level at Erawan Waterfall has remained the same and officials say tourists can visit Tiers 1 to 5 with no safety problems.

At least there’ll be plenty of water to see!
