As one would expect to see monkeys and elephants like Thailand, I did not manage to see a single one. All I managed to see is an injured deer, and maybe a rooster and its family. Nevertheless, I wasn’t expecting a lot from the natural view in Khao Yai.
Although I do love a good hike in the wild, the air was fresh, the weather was cooling, but the view wasn’t fantastic. The Ban Tha Chang spring area was quiet and filled with fallen leaves from the trees. Hardly, anyone was inside the spring area.
As for the National Park, I would have thought I would be able to see a gorgeous sea of green, but I see a sea of brown. I do like the walk to the Heaw Suwat Waterfall, as I do get to hike a little. Every step I take to the waterfall, I hope that the view was worth it. Guess what? No. It wasn’t worth the view. It was the smallest waterfall that I had seen so far. It was a nice photo spot, but it wasn’t worth the effort to go all the way there. Nevertheless, I was happy to burn some fats that day.
I also observed that my mum is no longer young, or has the same amount of strength as me. It wasn’t easy for her to go hiking. She would need a short break once in a while. Age is catching up, and both of us are no longer young. Life has a funny way of reminding you such things. However, I am thankful that she could still walk and climb up the stairs.
Is it worth it to go to Ban Tha Chang spring, Khao Yai National Park or the waterfall? No, it’s not worth it at all, unless you are a nature lover. I spent almost half a day at these 2 places, and I don’t feel like I had seen or done much. Regardless, if you wish to visit these places, I would recommend that you wear a pair of good shoes.
That’s all for now.
