Naga Country - Expedition description
Naga Country - Adventure tour to the festival of fireballs flying over the Mekong River near Nongkai. An exclusive expedition where you may be able to uncover the mysterious secret of the Naga snakes!
Only once a year for 2 days in October an unusual, absolutely magical and fabulous event takes place - red glowing balls emerge from the water, fly up to a height of 10-20 meters and disappear. True, it is sometimes possible to see this miracle in other periods.
In the Mekong, according to legend, there is a huge Paya Nag snake, which forms amazing balls. By the way, local inhabitants up to the present time make sacrifices, hoping to ingratiate themselves with a serpent, protection from troubles and success in business.
Scientists believe that the origin of these sparkling "balls" is a special composition of gases. Under certain weather conditions, gases form balls that soar upward. There is no unequivocal evidence for this theory. But every Thai will tell you that the Naga River Serpents, which are gradually disappearing from the Mekong, are throwing these balls out to celebrate the Buddha's arrival in our world.
They also say that giant snakes, about eighteen meters in size, were observed in this place. However, there is no documentary evidence.
Currently, this unique miracle has become world famous, and every year about a million tourists from all over the world come to the shores of the Mekong in the Issan province to observe this inexplicable phenomenon for themselves. Hurry up, perhaps soon the Naga snakes will move to a new place!
In addition, we will visit and explore the unique underground grottoes with rock paintings of the most ancient people. We will make stops and explore such settlements as Nongkai, Nakon Ratchasima, Kon Ken. In addition, we will make a visit to the unique dinosaur sanctuary.
The Naga Country expedition lasts four full days.
