Test the Prowess of the All New Mitsubishi Pajero sport at Khlong Madua in Nakhon Nayok

The name Khlong Madua in Nakhon Nayok Province may not be a familiar tourist destination but if you’re an off-roader, you’ll definitely have heard of this place because of its famed off-road trails. Amazing Road Trips with All New Mitsubishi Pajero sport would like to invite you to visit the place with your All New Mitsubish Pajero sport for an adventurous and exciting drive. Let’s head out!

Get to Know Our Destination

Khlong Madua is the source of Wang Takhrai waterfall and is a popular destination for off-roaders for over a decade. Apart from testing their vehicle’s off-road capabilities driving through the creek with mud, gravel, and potholes, the area is also great for relaxation with clear waters to wade through. Besides off-road vehicles, motorcyclists and bicyclists also love it here. There are a total of 19 canals but the first three are most accessible and the path leading to other canals can be tough even for off-road vehicles.

Another destination not to be missed in Nakhon Nayok is the Khun Dan Prakan Chon Dam or originally known as Khlong Ta Dan Dam. This is the world’s longest roller compacted concrete dam in Thailand and the world at 2,720 meters, with a height of 93 meters and capacity at 224 million cubic meters. The dam was built atop the Ta Dan dyke on recommendation of His Majesty the King to store water for the dry season and prevent flooding during the rainy season.

Fun in the Sun

  • Khlong Madua is a favorable family destination because the kids can enjoy the shallow end of the creek as the tide is not strong and the creek is clean and clear. Adults can picnic around the banks and purchase seasonal fruits and vegetables sold by locals such as bamboo shoots, pomelo, santol, banana, jackfruit, mango, and more.
  • The Khun Dan Prakan Chon Dam is opened for the public to view the breathtaking scenery of the city and the Khao Yai National Park. A tram is available to take visitors around the area at 20 Baht per passenger for a distance of about 2 kilometers.
  • Another activity at the Khun Dan Prakan Chon Dam is renting a longtail boat to take a look at the waterfall that is a distance away in the dam.

Travel Tips

  • Khlong Madua has accommodations and restaurants to serve the growing number of tourists so take your pick. Do make sure that you bring out all your garbage, don’t play loud music, and don’t wash your car in the creek.
  • If you’re planning on visiting Khlong Madua during the rainy season, do be on the lookout for high water levels and stay within the bounds of the first few canals because beyond the third canal, the water level can be very high.
  • The surrounding area of Khun Dan Prakan Chon Dam has a large number of accommodations and resorts or if you’d like a more rugged atmosphere, you can also pitch a tent at resorts which offer tents for hire. Most accommodations are located next to the water so you can enjoy swimming. There is also rafting available at around 1,000 Baht.

How to Get There

To get to Nakhon Nayok from Bangkok, use the Rangsit-Nakhon Nayok route and once you reach the entrance to Khlong Madua, turn left into the soi next to the Ban Dong School. Around 500 meters after Wat Ban Dong, turn right and go straight until you pass the Hua Khao Kaew School. The 7-kilometer road to Khlong Madua will turn gravelly at this point. As for Khun Dan Prakan Chon Dam, use Highway number 305 (Rangsit-Nakhon Nayok). At the Nakhon Nayok Hospital, go straight to Highway number 3049 and you’ll see signs directing you to the dam.


Safe Driving Tips

In driving your All New Pajero sport to Nakhon Nayok this rainy season, use the 4H (4WD HIGH-RANGE), particularly at Khlong Madua, to increase traction and safety because roads can be slippery during the rain and when driving through the creek.
No matter where you go with your All New Pajero sport, you can rest assure that you’ll be able to find a service center. Mitsubishi has as much as 214 service centers throughout the country to service your All New Pajero sport.
