So, Krabi provincial administration built the weir in order to store water in drought periods. The front of the weir was constructed as a water barrier, they poured the concrete on the slope surface toward a small swamp. Later, when moss began to cling on the slope, the children came to swim here, sliding down the slope to the swamp. After all, this place became an important tourist attraction.
Klong Root is the highlight of the community, the famous attraction and the gathering area for relaxation and activity of people in the community.
