Many also call it Velakhum. The next path will be by bamboo raft. After embarking on the raft, you will feel as if you have suddenly entered a rocky fort. This time it was  turn to be speechless and look with fascinated eyes. And at the same time you will feel that the rocky mountains that touch the sky on both sides are welcoming you in the green forest with solemnity. The forest is embracing you in the kingdom and the green clear waterways are giving you a warm welcome.

According to the locals, Sat Vai Khum is named after seven stones. Sat Vai Khum is named after the largest of the seven boulders that have fallen from the mountain of the gods. And the first stone was broken into two pieces last year.
