Tao Dam waterfall is great and magnificent

Tao Dam waterfall (Black Turtle Waterfall) is in Klong Wang Chao National Park, Khlong Lan Kamphaeng Phet District.

 It is the largest and tallest waterfall in Kamphaeng Phet Province with a height of 600 meters. There is a source of water originating from the Sop Khun Mak Stream that flows through Khao Tao Dam, causing water to flow all year round.

If you stand in front of the waterfall and look up to the top of the 270m tall waterfall, you can see the water splashing and spraying all over the area.

Below the Tao Dam waterfall is a large deep basin that looks so dark green that it looks like black. Looking down from the top, it resembles a big black turtle and it became the name of the waterfall.

Next to the basin in front of the waterfall, there are large and small stones lined all around. Those stones blocked the stream before the waterfall flowed into a wide water inlet again and flowed down to form a second waterfall.

At the second level of the waterfall, the water meanders in a narrow channel above the mountain peak. Then fall down to the bottom, it's a beautiful waterfall that I really can't take my eyes off.
