Vajiralongkorn Dam, formerly known as Khao Laem Dam, located at Tambon Tha Khanun 153 km. from Kanchanaburi on Highway 323, 6 km. to the north of Amphoe Thong Pha Phum.
It is a rockfill dam with a reinforced concrete surface measuring 92 metres high. Its crest is 10 metres wide and 1,019 metres long stretching across the Khwae Noi River.
It is a multi–purpose hydro–electric plant with natural beauty and a scenic lake where rafting boats for rent are available. There is also floating accommodation and cruising boats available 3 km. beyond the entrance to the dam.
A boat trip on the lake with a stop at a coconut grove (Maphrao Kathi – a fleshy variety of coconut) on an island in the lake takes 1 hour from the dam. Advance bookings with the Thong Pha Phum District Office is required.
Accommodation and boat (for group visitors) is provided. For more details, please contact the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT), Tel. 0 3459 9077 ext. 2502 and 2506, 0 3459 8030 or Bangkok, Tel. 0 2436 6046 – 8.
