Thailand’s largest and tallest waterfall, Thi Lo Su Waterfall in Tak Province, will be closed for two months during the rainy season to restore the environment.

Given the dwindling number of tourists during the rainy season and the difficulty of hiking to the waterfall, officials at Umphang Wildlife Sanctuary announced that the popular tourist attraction will be closed from July 1 to August 31.

Amnat Fongchai, head of the reserve, said on Saturday that the temporary closure will allow natural resources in the area and surrounding areas to recover.

Mr Amnath said leisure visits and study tours would be banned at the falls during the two-month period.

Thi Lo Su is a limestone formation at an altitude of 900 meters in the Umphang Wildlife Sanctuary. At 250 meters high and 450 meters wide, the waterfall is considered the sixth largest waterfall in the world, according to the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).
