Severe drought hits Khao Soidown Waterfall

The famous Khao Soidown Waterfall in the eastern Thai province of Chanthaburi is facing the most serious drought in history, the Thai-language daily Khao Sod reported yesterday (June 5, 2020).

Forestry protection officer Panat Choochuay said the depth of the waterfall is normally one-meter deep during May and June of each year. This year, the depth of the water is merely 30 centimeters.

Water contained in the Khao Soidown area flows down to Chanthaburi, Bang Pakong and Prachinburi before it reaches Klong Dan Canal, which is the natural border between Thailand and Cambodia.
