Chulabhorn Dam is a big dam located in the vicinity of Phukhieo Wildilife Park. Our group made short stop on the top of this dam before we actually went to the wildlife sanctuary.
And yes, I admit, that I didn't not posted in chronological order.
Chulabhorn Dam was named after the youngest daughter of the current Thai King. The purpose of this dam is to generate electricity and provide water for irrigation.
We did nothing much on this dam but to marvel at its size and take photos.
I noticed that the other side of the dam has little water. It seems like the dam greedily took all the water. This situation is not good for those people downstream who need continuous supply of water for their crops.
Phukhieo Wildlife Sanctuary is located on the “dry side” of the Chulabhorn Dam. Fortunately, the wildlife sanctuary has other source of water other than the river. If not then the animals in the forest will fight each other for water.
Chulabhorn Dam is quite big that it also serves as bridge for people and vehicles who want to cross the river.
Our groups photo taking was over so we hit the road again to finally go to our destination: Phukhieo Wildlife Sanctuary.
