Hiking in Thailand´s Kanchanaburi Erawan Falls Solo
I went to Erawan Falls in Kanchanaburi (Thailand) as part of a tour so on one hand, I was guided up until the entrance. The rest I hiked in part with fellow travel bloggers and solo. I had the best of both worlds.
The park was well-populated on the day I went, so I never felt completely isolated and alone. However, had it been a less visited hiking trail, I wouldn’t have gone as far as I did. I would’ve just stuck to the easy path and not gone to deep in.
Hiking in Thailand´s Erawan Falls National Park isn’t as easy as you might think
With Erawan Falls, often, I’d pass other travelers on my way up or going down. Although the park sees a decent amount of tourists, the trail can still be tricky and there are parts that can be surprisingly challenging, so you will have to be careful and not assume safety. There’s times you’re climbing hills, hopping jagged rocks,… it’s definitely makes you work a little for the prize of each level.
But seeing each level is a prize in itself.
Tips for Hiking Solo (at Erawan Falls or anywhere else):
• Stick to worn paths
• Avoid isolated areas
• Follow other travelers
• Wear shoes; Avoid flip-flops or slippers
