Kiriwong: Good earth, good weather, good life

 

Cool morning mist lingers above lush hills with the backdrop of mighty mountains. From distance, a sheet of whitewater churns down a cliff. Sound of nearby stream fills the valley while farmers work in their shady fruit orchards.

Nestled at the foot of the Khao Luang Mount, in Nakhon Si Thammarat province, the charming village of Kiriwong boasts a green mountainous landscape and very refreshing weather. It is considered as one of the best and purest ozone areas in Thailand.

The centuries-old Kiriwong community is also well known for its original folklife which has been carried out until now, particularly the old traditions of crafts and organic fruit cultivation. Its organic gardening called Suan Somrom, in which tropical fruit variety are grown in the same plot, and makes Kiriwong a very nature-friendly destination worthwhile to study.

Spend a couple night in the village and you will be amazed with simple life. Stroll the orchard and witness stink beans grow along with mangosteens, durians, betel nuts, and many other fruit and vegetables, learn to make local crafts or natural dyeing, swim in the clean river or scoot around on bike via partly submerged road to explore places, will showcase how the locals enjoy life in harmony with nature. 

 

How to get there: Lan Saka District is 16 miles from downtown Nakhon Si Thammarat.
