Raft House on Srinakarin Dam
Srinakarin Dam was constructed to provide a natural water and power source for the surrounding area. The damming of the River Kwai Yai resulted in the formation of a gigantic natural reservoir of thousands of acres in size, and created a natural haven for wildlife containing numerous species of tropical plants and animals. Floating fishing lodges are positioned at various parts of the lake and serve as basic accommodation and as a base from which to mount trips or fishing expeditions.
Kanchanaburi produces 41 percent of the electrical energy used in Thailand. It is produced by freshwater resources mainly from Sri Nakarin and Khao Lam Dam. Sri Nakarin Dam is about 3 km north of the Erawan Falls and about 68 km from town. The Sri Nakarin Lake offers fishing, luxurious raft hotels, weekend boat tours and watersports. It is surrounded by the Sri Nakarin National Park.
