The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is inviting local Thai and international tourists to come and experience the amazing sight of the ‘Pink Water Lilies Lake’ at Nong Han Kumphawapi, a freshwater lake in Thailand’s Northeastern province of Udon Thani.
The lake covers an area of 22,500 rai (36 sq. km) mostly in Kumphawapi district and parts of Prachaksinlapakhomand Ku Kaeo districts. It provides fresh water for agriculture and local consumption for Thais living around the lake and is considered one of the country’s most important wetlands.
Pawana Prajit, director of TAT Udon Thani office said: “The natural wonders of Nong Han create the illusion of an amazing ‘pink water lilies lake’ every year from October when the abundant flowers in the lake are in full bloom from then until March 2020.”
The perfect time to see the flowers in full bloom is each morning from 6am to 11am. Tourists can hire personal cruise boats to see the pink water lilies up close and enjoy the natural scenery filled with a variety of fish, birds, wildlife and other aquatic life.
