Nam Tok Than Thong and Nam Tok Thanthip

Rainy season is waterfall time! (Most of them don't have water in the dry season).

Udon-News thanks 'Maithai', a member of Udon News Forum for the following excellent report!!

In our area, it is often the case that everywhere is crowded on weekends. Loads of people head to the parks to picnic, and many drive to the waterfalls. There is then lots of eating, drinking and bathing! Then the same thing the next day.

We recently visited a couple of waterfalls without many people. So off we went first to the Nam Tok (waterfall) Than Thong. Head towards Tha Bo, Si Chiang Mai, and then on to the beautiful road along the Mekong River. It's about  120 km from Udon.

This waterfall is actually more of a mountain river with many rapids and cascades, and plenty of water running quite quickly! The foothills are very natural and impressive.

Water is usually only flowing in the rainy season. It is lovely to swim in the many basins and bathe in the flow (if you can stand!).

We drove to the next waterfall - Nam Tok Thanthip. Continue along the road towards Pak Chom, and after about 150 km from Udon the waterfall is on the left.

There are 3 height levels, but only 2 are accessible for safety reasons. At the foot of the falls, great swimming pools have been carved out.

That's it for today! Time to make a family outing and look for yourself.
