Rafting trips have now been added to the travel ban for the Thi Lo Su Waterfall tourist destination in Tak province due to concerns about heavy run-off.
The road access to Umphang Wildlife Sanctuary in Tak’s Umphang district where the waterfall is located was closed from June to October for the rainy season and to allow natural rehabilitation.
The original closure allowed rafts to visit the waterfall and camp in the wildlife sanctuary.
But park officials have now shut down rafting starting on Tuesday due to the danger posted by heavy run-off.
Access to the creek and waterfall will be indefinitely banned until the rains stop, he said.
