Local wisdom and collective efforts had created a quaint landmark unique to this sub-district of Maha Sarakham.

Nong Kae Dam is the name of the local lake that was once a small creek. Later, rain after one rain storm after another, this creek expanded into a large lake and the locals, seeking for a good way to make it across this water basin, banded together to build a wooden bridge that spans over one kilometer across this lake.

The story and years of this unique bridge aside, this lake is home to a great collection of freshwater creatures, especially wild birds.
