Huay Khamin waterfall closed to tourists

The Srinakharind national park in Kanchanaburi has decided to close down the Huay Khamin waterfall after water has dried up.

Mr Thiti Somphi, the park chief, said on Tuesday that the waterfall which is a popular tourist destination in Kanchanaburi province has been affected by climate change in the past 3-4 years, resulting in premature drying up of water feeding the waterfall.

He said that he was afraid that tourists would be disappointed when they arrive at the waterfall and find out that there is no water at all, hence, it is logical to close down the waterfall until the rainy season.

However, he said that tourists can still camp in the park if they want to without have to pay entry fee.
