The water fall its self is charming to visit. Ride on elephant into the water is very much fun. It was a nice day to spent.

One of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. Make sure you get there early before the crowd so if you wanna swim around its not to crowded.

Tad Sae waterfall scenery may not attractive as compare to Kuang Si waterfall. However in Tad Sae, there are activities like flying fox and trekking. If you like the activities then you may pay a visit here.

This is a smaller vision of Kuang Si waterfall. As long as time permits, make sure to go and enjoy the beauty of this water fall as well.

We visited Tad Sae as part of a trip including Kayaking to get there, Zip line experience, with great views (and pics) of the falls, an average lunch, and a refreshing bath in the falls. Avoid diving head first into it, water is shallow...

I am sure the waterfall is just stunning when there is water in it and that it is surely a worthwhile trip :) However, we were duped by a few people who told us to visit both the small waterfall (this one) and the big (Kuang Si)...only to find...
