Tree Spirits at Erawan Park
About an hour into our hike up the river, we came across a spirit tree. This one was a bit different than the others I've seen around Thailand, so I took a photo. Thais (and many of the neighboring countries) believe that spirits roam the land â€” both spirits of dead people and 'land spirits'. They believe that certain trees (typically older ones) are homes to many spirits, so they leave things for them.
