Picturesque and refreshing

A pleasant short walking experience added too by thousands of butterflies and a cooling plung in the refreshing pools.

This was a hike we weren't quite prepared for , but it was well worth the effort. We took my mom and young children and all were able to make it to the top. The climb was very rocky and the path isn't well-defined in places, but the views are pretty. The swimming area has lots of fish so don't... More

We visited the waterfalls one morning. I would recommend going early since it gets very hot for the fairly strenuous walk and I wouldnt want to be there in the midday sun. We only got as far as level 5 - there are 7 levels of waterfalls but we couldnt figure out the path from 5 onwards. Its a bit... More

If you like waterfalls and hiking then this is worth checking out! There are many different levels of waterfalls, many of which you can swim in, although it is quite cold. The trails between paths are pretty much not existent making it difficult to figure out where to go.

We visited the Kaeng Krachan NP in two places for one day each. It only really makes sense, if you have time to spend at least one night in the park to get more of the atmosphare and wild life. During the day, there are too many people, not worth at all 300 Bath... Farang Price :-( Much nicer for... More

I had no idea that this was a national park, just saw the waterfall on Google Maps and decided to ride my bicycle out there from Hua Hin (100km round trip). Well, on arrival there is a gate and they charge non-Thais 300 Baht and Thais 100 Baht. Since I don't like to support this type of pathetic racist behavior,... More

Went to the above waterfall but due to lack of rain there was not much of a flow over the falls which was a pity.

Nice place for a hike in the jungle. Entry is around THB 300/person. Do wear good shoes though and do not expect to go higher than level 5 unless you really want to climb. Roundtrip to level 5 is about 4 km hike. Remember to buy plenty of fish food at the entrance. You will not find any stalls inside... More

This waterfall has two treks along waterways - one is 15 stages, another - 17. Separation happens after 7th stage from the start of the treks. It's a beautiful place with huge boulders, enormous old trees and butterflies. These things are enough in itself to visit it. If you are strong and flexible you can try to venture to the... More

Did a half day trip here using a local taxi guy to take us there and back for around £12. The journey was ok, we even saw a wild elephant on the roadside. The water falls themselves are nice enough but as is so often true in Thailand it can be spoils by the over selling or making money affect.... More
