The monsoon season is just around the corner. That does NOT mean steady rain. It means a change of passing showers. These showers fill the rivers and creeks making the waterfalls more spectacular. Here are some images from the waterfalls of Phang Nga Province.
Most rain comes in the late afternoon or evening until we reach well into the rainy season. Even then, there are days or even weeks when we don’t have rain.
As the climate changes, the chance of steady/dependable rain during the rainy season lessens. The chance of a bit of rain during the dry season has actually increased. For nature, this means a more steady water supply for the plants. That can mess up their fruiting, but it’s generally a good thing.
Phang Nga Province is full of rivers and creeks. In fact, creeks are where we offer most of our hiking tours. Creeks allow easy access to the thick jungle.
One of our favorite creek hikes also offers a lot of smaller side creek hikes. There aren’t many actual trails in the jungle other than game trails. Creeks and rivers are easier than trails. You can cool off as well. That’s an added bonus.
The riparian area of the jungle… riparian means near water… offers the most biodiversity too. Fruit trees tend to be near water too.
