A trip to Thailand, especially if one is a fan of waterfalls, must include a visit to the Huay Mae Khamin waterfall.

This waterfall is one of Thailand’s most famous and popular waterfalls, and it also has an attraction for people of all ages. In fact, a group of travelers from out of town came just for the opportunity to get a glimpse of this natural wonder.

If You Go

To get to Thailand from the airport in Bangkok, one has to take a plane to the island of Phuket. From Phuket, one can travel to the North of Thailand, where the first stop is the Khao Sok National Park. From here, it takes a few hours to drive to the island of Koh Tao, where the best part of the trip is to visit the Huay Mae Khamin waterfall.

Waterfall Hiking

A large part of the hike begins at the waterfall base, as it was originally built and remains today. The first part of the hike takes a couple of days and involves trekking through the forest and following a route that passes along the river banks. This walk also includes camping at various sites along the way.

The next part of the hike takes one through an old road and another part of the jungle forest. At the end of the trail, you can travel by elephants. As you can imagine, this part of the journey is not for everyone, but it is certainly a fun part to enjoy and photograph.

The journey ends with a spectacular view of the waterfall itself, which is the main attraction for visitors of all ages in the region. The last half of the hike is one of the most beautiful walks in the world. As one crosses the waterfall, there is a spectacular view of the whole island.

Other Ways to See the Waterfall

There are two ways to reach the waterfall, the first of which is by taking a bus tour to see the waterfall from the top. If you choose to travel by bus, make sure you do a bit of research on which company will provide the best tour of the Huay Mae Khamin waterfall. These companies should provide you with information about their prices, the different types of buses they use, and the services they provide to their clients.

Another way to see the waterfall is by boat, one of the fastest ways to get into the area. From the boat, you will be able to get a full view of the waterfall, and then you can head back to the bus, which will bring you back to Phuket if you choose to travel that route.

Conclusion

The Huay Mae Khamin waterfall is a fantastic place to visit for many reasons, and it is definitely one that deserves a trip. If you plan to visit this area in the future, be sure to do a little research. It’s a beautiful spot that offers a great experience.…

The Colors of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is named for its colorful sandstone cliffs that stretch 15 miles along the largest of the Great Lakes, Lake Superior. The beautiful colors of these magnificent rocks are caused by the mineral-rich groundwater that leaches out of the rocks. The iron, manganese, and copper minerals paint the cliffs in reds, pinks, blacks, greens, and other colors.

My friend JP who owns an epoxy flooring company in Houston told me that when he visited Pictured Rocks with his family several years ago, he was reminded of the rich colors they use in epoxy paint. The colors are really that beautiful and must be seen in person.

See Pictured Rocks by Boat

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is located on the southwest shore of Lake Superior near Marquette, Michigan. The best way to see these colorful cliffs is by boat. A boat tour takes visitors along this beautiful coastline to view this scenic wonder. The boat tour begins at the Marquette marina and takes about an hour and a half.

The marina offers several boats for rent, including catamarans, small speedboats, and yachts. Visitors can enjoy this lovely place on a short leisurely cruise along the shores and waterways. The marina also has boats available for boating and fishing. There are picnic areas near the marina for dining and relaxation. Boat rental charges are nominal.

The Lighthouse

The Pictured Rocks boat tour also includes a chance to view the historic lighthouse that has stood since 1835. The lighthouse overlooks the southernmost point of Lake Huron. The marina has restrooms, tables, chairs, and restrooms for visitors who choose to be self-parked on the waterfront. The marina also provides boat slips, docks, and storage for touring or camping overnight. If you prefer to leave the marina, there is also a parking area available. The marina provides a free shuttle service to the marina parking area and the boat tour’s parking area.

During the boat tour, you can see the many attractions on the water, such as the beach and the nearby harbor. Several boats are available for day trips to see these areas. The boat tour can travel along the Lake Huron shore and through Lake Huron and Lake Michigan’s waters. The marina also provides guided tours of the beach to give the visitor a more detailed view of the area. Other attractions are the harbor and pier.

There are several restaurants on the boat tour. You will not want to miss the opportunity to sample the local cuisine on this scenic excursion. All boat tours include meals and beverages. Many hotels are just minutes away from the marina, so those traveling by car you have plenty of time to relax and enjoy the sights.

Beautiful Beaches

Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore hugs Lake Superior’s southern shore on the peninsula of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Of course, the name comes from the distinctive multicolored rocks of the beach and surrounding area. Unusual, layered sandstone formations such as Miners Castle and Cathedral Rock define the headland. Twelvemile Beach leads into a white birch forest to the east. Several trails pass through an area that was once a shipwrecked marina. Fishing charters are available.
