Today, mini-expedition in the jungle to go to the waterfall, in the south of Koh LantaThe road becomes wilder, shortly after the point where the hard road becomes a dirt road. You must then take another red dirt road to the left, marked with a sign "Waterfall".

I was warned, in the dry season, the said waterfall is reduced to a thin stream of water. But who cares, it is the walk under the trees that is really worth it.

We are in the shade, in the greenery, and we follow the brook, in which we walk sometimes, when the path disappears. Walk with the feet in the water, refreshing.

Half an hour later, under the tropical canopy, with immense trunks and enormous leaves, we arrive at a kind of rocky wall in arc of circle, from which flows, indeed, a vague "waterfall".

I am lucky, I managed not to be there at the same time as other groups of tourists. The place is fresh, peaceful. I take a little break, in the middle of the forest sounds and the lapping of the water, before going back to Bamboo Beach, a beautiful quiet beach.

The stay is getting shorter: I'll dive one last time tomorrow, then I'll give myself a day to dry off before flying back to Bangkok on Friday to Krabi airport. And Saturday 3, return to France.

Still no whale shark or manta rays during the two previous days of diving ... A pretty turtle, however, pointed the tip of its beak on a coral reef to Koh Haa.
