River Clay going from Krung Ching mountains area to the sea, so its area has amazing views all year round - on sunrises. sunsets and all time between! As its look like (already wrote ) it was the sacred river of ancient tantric kingdom with regular rites on Loi Krathong and others (including those with Kings initiation from same article) .
Pass Phom Khiri and follow the road - in about 7 km there will be the turn to Wang Lung waterfall.
Because I already posted mapping of all that places to Tambralinga, here - only pictures.
Ai Khiao located in a short drive from Phom Khiri, road opposite to amphoe Nakhon SI Thammarat.
Phrom Lok is the large and high, turn right in a centre on Phrom Khiri. There are many cafes on a way to the waterfall.
Tales refers origin of name Phromlok to love story between Promlocha & sage Kandi from"Vishnu-Purana". Promlocha is a heavenly beauty - Apsara. She was sent to break long askesis of Kandi - one of the great bramin. Completing her mission Promlocha was trying to leave the sage, but every time he was asking to stay with him a bit longer. 100 years, 200 years more, then 300 more... Kandi couldn't enjoy enough. After all, thinking that its ust 1 night left, bramin went to prepare things for the morning rites, when lauphing Apsara told him the exact time. 907 years, 7 months and 3 days passed like just 1 night for Kandi, while he was enjoying love with Promlocha. Later from their love will born Marisha - wife of 10 Prachets and mother of famous Valmiki - author of Ramayana.
Since that time everyone who will have a bath here, reminding this beautiful story and respecting that couple will feel young in any age and have many other benefits for health.
