    Vajiralongkorn (Rama X) Dam and Hydro Electric Power Plant

    On the 18TH we visited the Vajiralongkorn Dam, Tha Khanun, Thong Pha Phum, Kanchanaburi. The dam is on the Kwaii Noi River and is used to power a 300MW Hydro Electric Power Plant. The power plant is off limits to the general public but access to the dam and associated spillways is allowed. We spend a couple hours reviewing the scenery quite nice and pleasant. Overcast skies with no rain. We were the only visitors although a couple did show up followed by five Thais turned out they were employees though.

    Buddha overseeing the whole operation but a good 150 step stairway to the Buddha platform. Not for the physically challenged.
