Krasae Cave is a small cave on the Death Railway near Thamkrasae Station. You can walk to the cave from either of the two nearest stations. The walk from the Thamkrasae Bridge Station is a little longer and you must walk on the Wampo Viaduct which is somewhat lacking when it comes to OH&S. There are no handrails and many areas for possible slipping and tripping. Add this to the fact that there are still trains using this line multiple times a day and some find this walk a little daunting. The train drivers are well aware that tourists do walk the tracks in this area and normally ample warning is given of the approaching train. Definitely worth the walk if the OH&S issues and heights don’t bother you. I have seen several people back out of this walk especially on a windy day.
The Death Railway was built during the 2nd World War by the labor of the war prisoner and the Asian labor forced by the Japanese troop. During that time, Thailand was the alliance of Japan and also gave a big support to the Japanese army. The Death Railway was a route to pass Myanmar and to invade India. Japan was aware that by using the sea troop to fight with England, their armies would be attacked by the alliances. From this reason, they decided to build this railway. The railway was named after the event in the history. There is a saying that “the numbers of the railway, is equal to the numbers of the death labor used to build this railway”

SaiYokNoi Waterfall, known by local residence as Nam TokKhaoPung, has been widely famous for a long time. The name KhaoPung which means crumbled mountain derived from the natural occurrence of the waterfall: eroded limestone cliffs became steeps that descended down in many levels to the foothills. Water comes from top of the mountain flowing down small waterways and finally falls down to the 15 metres high limestone crag. Freely gliding water on slopes of the hill under peaceful shades of various kinds of trees together with some reeds growing along the waterside and cool breeze is such a breathtaking beauty.
