The Royal Forest Department had sent officers to conduct a preliminary survey from B.E. 1961 to 1972, using the Erawan Waterfall as the focal point, and discovered that the mountain forest area at Kanchanaburi, which was particularly beautiful and had abundant natural resources, was a particularly beautiful nature. According to the royal edict, the land limited region was in the Mueang District, Wang Khanai District, Ban Thuan District, and Wang Ka District Kanchanaburi, which the Minister of Defense and the Ministry of Interior were responsible for guarding. The Royal Forest Department had reported to the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, as well as the Ministries of Defense and Interior, requesting that specific land restricted regions to be designated as national park areas. On June 19, 1975, the National Park Board recommended the establishment of a national park, and a royal edict canceling such restricted area was published in the Royal Thai Government Gazette.

Erawan National Park Attractions

Erawan Falls

      Erawan Falls is located on the park’s east side, just a short walk from the visitor center’s parking lot. The upper tier of the waterfall is thought to resemble a three-headed white elephant in Hindu mythology, hence the name. The gorgeous emerald green pure waters of Erawan Falls are what make it so attractive. It isn’t one of the country’s largest or widest falls, but it is far more attractive than others. Erawan Falls is divided into seven major tiers and a few minor tiers. A series of pathways and footbridges connect all of the layers, all the way up to the sixth tier. For those looking for a little extra challenge, the last layer can be reached by scrambling up a few cliffs. A concrete path was recently constructed to make walking in damp circumstances safer. From the trailhead to the top tier, the journey is almost 1.5 kilometers. Visitors are welcome to swim in the various emerald green ponds that can be seen along the pathways. The ponds are teeming with fish.

Kanchanaburi folk dance history

           Folk dance from Kanchanaburi It is a traditional Thai folk dance and performance that is performed in various districts of Kanchanaburi Province. This traditional dance is not widely performed and is on the verge of extinction. During 1961, a Thai-Danish survey team excavated in Kanchanaburi Province to tell the story of prehistoric times. Mr. Chin Dee, the head of the Thai survey team, watched one of the native games played by the villagers of Ban Kao, which Mr. Chin saw and was quite fascinated in because he had never seen Singing and dancing like this before. Rum yew, also known as Kanchanaburi Folk Dance, is the name of this drama.

           Mr. Chin Dee then reported back to the Fine Arts Department that Rum yew was most likely a traditional Thai folk dance and play that was on the verge of extinction, and that Mr. Thanit Yupho, Director-General of the Fine Arts Department at the time, had travelled to see the song playing at Ban Kao village by himself. After seeing it, it was assumed that it was one of the local games on the verge of extinction, so on June 5, 1963, the artists of the Fine Arts Department travelled to Ban Kao, chorakhephuak Subdistrict, Mueang District, Kanchanaburi Province, to practice and inherit the playing of Rum yew by Mr. Thiam Thongpoon, the headman of Ban Kao. Locals had organized for the dancers to demonstrate and transmit the technique on the field in front of Ban Kao Public School. Small songs were a lot of joy to play. In the past, when a band was formed to play, the members would have a good time and may play all day and night.

             The reason for calling this type of play “dance yew” or “dance on cloth” may be due to requests mentioning the poem word “Oi” every time, where people around that area may sing a distorted voice to “yew,” and the so-called “dance on cloth” may be called according to the method of playing that requires a cloth to be draped over or around the shoulder of the person who will Come to be their partner. Let’s have some fun with the cloth.” Following the transmission of the Rum yew, the artists of the Fine Arts Department were brought in to modify the dancing position to make it more beautiful while keeping the original lyrics untouched. Later, on February 25, 1964, the government staged a dance performance for the King and Queen of Malaysia at Thammasat University, which His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej attended on this occasion. As a result, the first dance performance was planned.
