Our adventure in Nan would not have been complete without a stop, or rather a drive through the National Park. We actually had to go that beautiful windy way in order to reach the Salt Mines! During the dry season, you can walk through this gorge and although the water was flowing furiously, that didn't stop us from hiking down (carefully) and getting as close to the bottom as possible.
The park is actually named after this rare flowering tree which is only found in this area. We were fortunate to see the beginnings of the bloom as the season typically starts in February.
