Ban Ta Khun’s formal name is Ban Ta Khun. It was originally situated in Khao Sok National Park, which was only forested. Later, the Electricity Generating Authority constructed the Ratchaprapha Dam to generate electricity. As a result, some forest areas are transformed into dams to store water. However, Khao Sok National Park is still in full control of the area.

        The general scenery within the reservoir above Ratchaprapha Dam has a beautiful atmosphere with green grassy hills, beautifully decorated gardens, and ornamental plants, making it an excellent place to relax. The dam is 95 meters high and 700 meters long, with a multi-purpose clay core. It is regarded as one of the most important water resource development projects in the southern region, contributing to the stability of the power system and economic progress. The dam’s hydropower can generate 315 million kilowatt hours of electricity per year. Furthermore, the water released by the power generator is transferred for use in agriculture in downstream areas.

Tourists who visit Ratchaprapha must take a popular cruise to see the beauty of the mountains in the middle of the lake, which has been dubbed “Thailand’s Guilin.” If you’re lucky, you might even see a hornbill, which is a rare bird. If you have the time, staying overnight on a raft in the dam to fully appreciate the beauty of nature and waiting to experience the beautiful atmosphere and relaxing early in the morning is a must.

        There is more than Guilin in Thailand, within the Ratchaprapha Dam. There are, however, some beautiful caves that are popular with tourists, such as Tham Nam Thalu or Tham Nam Lu, Tham Si Ru, and Tham Prakai Phet. Coral stones can be found in every cave. Beautiful stalactites and stalagmites can also be found. The Khlong Saeng Wildlife Sanctuary also has hiking trails for studying rare plants and wildlife.

        The beauty of Ratchaprapha Dam changes with the seasons. Visitors will also have the opportunity to see the mist lingering above the water and the limestone peaks before or after the rain if they visit during the rainy season. This is a lovely atmosphere, comparable to a picture of a bright blue sky in the summer.
