Photographer's Note

This is a follow up from the same location as previous post of the local villagers in the Island of Don Khone, catching fishes near Li Phi Waterfalls.

Some of you were wondering and thought that the Mekong is a large river and brownish in color and you are right. In the rainy seasons which is about 9 months in a year, the river are brown with high soil content, as the rain water wash down soil and carries with it soil from the land. Another reason that the water here look more greenish and blue is because, they is where the river is going through some rocky areas, splitting up in many different streams and small waterfalls and cascades. All these streams will eventually merge back into one big river which you know as the Mekong.
