Erawan Falls is located in Erawan National Park "close" to Kanchanaburi. And by close I mean like 70km or so. However, definitely worth the trip from anywhere! The falls is actually on seven different levels and climbing up to the seventh is not a task for people with weak legs or problems with knees. It's climbing, steep (almost broken) wooden... More

Erawan Falls are stunning. There are 7 levels of falls. We only made it to about level 4 - we underestimated how much water is necessary to go trekking in Thailand heat. But every level is beautiful and has lots of space to swim, relax, and play in the waterfalls. The views are breath-taking and it was a relaxing and... More

Loved this place, not for people who don't like exercise, climbing or walking. Loved swimming at all levels of the waterfall can not wait to go back

I made it to the 7th tier, it was quite the trek but definitely worth it, the water was incredibly blue, it was beautiful. I went really early and we beat the crowds going up which meant for some great photo opportunities. Thinking I wouldn't make it passed level 5 because of all the stairs beforehand that got me to...

It is a must-stop attraction if you happen to go to Kanchanaburi. There are 7 waterfalls, each at different elevation. Amazing feeling once reaching the 7th!

On arrival there is a car park and shops/restaurants - souvenier and snack type from what I saw. You can take a golf buggy for the first part of the walk from the car park to the first fall but we found it an easy walk along tarmac paths. Our guide explained that this was a good place to have...

The Erawan Waterfall is actually a protected national Park at Kanchanaburi in Thailand. I, My boyfriend and my friends (Totally 4 Persons) wake up an early morning to climb up (Approximately 7.00 AM.) The Earawan Waterfall have 7 layers of falls. We also stayed at Erawan National Park 1 night advance. The first layer is not all that much to... More

I really enjoyed our trip to Erawan falls, swimming in the falls was amazing. The blue water and crazy garra rufa fish that eat at your feet was quite an experience. My only regret was we booked two tours during our Erawan day and didn't have a lot of time and we had to do the full hike to the... More

Visiting this natural park was our main reason to include Kanchanaburi in our Thailand itinerary. What a disappointment it was! Even if it was during high-season (beginning of February) i didn't find the place crowded at all. Maybe the fact that it was during the week it helped a lot. Public transport from K. to the park is awful. Bus... More

We stayed in Kanchanaburi and hired a local guy with a songthraew to take us up into the national park and wait for us until we were done. There were 5 of us so splitting it was cheap. We hiked straight up to the top at the 7th tier first as the top ones close early. Then we explored the... More
