This image was taken at Erawan water Falls level 4, Kanchanaburi, Thailand,

Erawan Waterfalls in the Kanchanaburi Province of Thailand is one of most breathtakingly beautiful places ever to be seen in Thailand. The waterfalls are ranked as one of the most beautiful in Southeast Asia and it has been said that they are the most beautiful waterfalls in the world.


The waterfalls received their name, Erawan, from Hindu mythology. At one time the falls had an appearance of a three-headed or three-trunk-elephant-like appearance resembling the Hindu God by the name of Erawan. In the Thai language the waterfalls are known as Namtok Erawan.


The limestone waterfall is fed by a mountain creek where the water falls over limestone cliffs making beautiful pools and fascinating rounded formations. The unique colors are attributed to the underlying limestone that the water flows and drops over. There are seven levels or tiers with the entire waterfall measuring one and a half kilometers long. You will find that each level is indeed beautiful and unique,
Hope you like,
