This park is amazing. You have 7 waterfalls, don't miss any of them, especially the last ones although all of them are great and lots of fun. The water is cold and clear and almost each one of the waterfalls provides you with different activity..... You can slide from one and climb on the other, lots of fun. The way... More

Erawan waterfall was, quite simply, paradise, and I would thoroughly recommend a visit there. The walk to the top can be a little challenging in the heat, but there are seven tiers, so visitors can choose how far up they want to hike. When I visited, I was also lucky enough to see some monkeys, including a baby one.

This was my first serious hike and I loved every bit of it! After waterfall number 4 it gets more tricky, somewhere you need to cross water or mud so think about comfortble footwear. My sandals were perfect for it! Views are truly amazing, water is very refreshing. As many of others we found fall number 2 easiest to acess... More

Hike up to the top and work your way down. A tough enough walk in the humid low season but its all worth it sliding into the clear water and swimming through the falls. Not all the falls are spectacular, they are modest but it was well worth the visit. Be warned, the fish will give you a shock when... More

This place is about 3.5 hours from Bangkok by taxi or 4.5 hours via bus....It is good to visit if you have two days stay at Kanchanaburi (Bridge over River Kwai). Not a very big waterfall but flow of water over rocks.. Around seven level... Best thing is, place is untouched, clean, wild... It may get very humid, but water... More

We drove on a scooter from Kanchanaburi, it was a very long drive taking an hour and a half each way but it was totally worth it! The waterfalls were the best waterfalls I saw in Thailand. We hiked up to the top level, which was a long way up and on the top level there was a lot of... More

The trip was a few hours from Bangkok, we booked a tour but the a/c did not cool the van very well. It was family day at the waterfall so was very busy, it was not as described and pictured on the website and was difficult to reach the water, by climbing down rock faces and climbing over tree roots....

This is a wonderful spot with many waterfalls one after another. I will definitely return for more fantastic scenery. Wear decent footwear.

Access is quite easy with good signs on the road. You can go as organized tour or drive your own vehicle. There are 7 tiers of waterfalls and the path is very easy till 5th. Then it is a little bit more difficult. There is a chance to swim in the ponds. There are some fish and be prepared they... More

The waterfalls are gorgeous, all different levels really have something to show for. The place is crowded with Thai and tourists, so it would be better to come early. To swim however, the water is full of really big fish. Because of this, we didn't really like swimming here, but obviously the Thai people didn't care. Tip: Take the bus... More
