Well, this is not Niagara Falls, not big, but if you like to walk in the nature instead of downtown markets, then this is an okay break away from City business. Remember to use walking shoes, which will make it more comfortable for you.

The perfect location for families, nature lovers and of course, photographers! Once you enter the park you trek up 4-5 tiers to get to the biggest waterfall. You really do need to be a little careful and it can get tiring but well worth all the effort. When we got to the top (main waterfall) we stripped down to our... More

Brilliant place for a walk through nature. Particularly impressive after rainfall but this does mean that the path is not easy to follow. We made it just past level five, which included a couple of river crossings, but couldn't pick the path back up. Still, a very enjoyable adventure. Don't wear flip flops and take some water!

The Pala-U waterfall is worth visiting, especially after the rain season, when there is lots of water running. There are 16 different size of waterfalls. It is a nice jungle walk from a waterfall to another. Make noise while you walk. ( We saw few snakes there, but they escaped, when heard us). The Pala-U is located 35 miles west... More

as most waterfalls here are a bit 'literal'....yes, the water is falling. though nice pleasant stroll. seem the butterflies were out for a bit of drying. i jumped in one spot, calling my name, and perfect for a dip. a bit out of town, and good to add along with other sites.

Stunningly beautiful area to visit. There are five levels to climb up and I would highly recommend sensible footwear as precarious in places!! Thailand at its best. But be careful on the slippery rocks!!!

Butterflies everywhere. Nice short hikes along the river. Incredible forest and the waterfall is very cool. Bring a picnic or buy the food in the park which is quite good. Go for a swim and bring a camera.

Bought fish food at the start of the waterfall for 20baht however we later found out that locals got it much cheaper. Was a pretty tough climb up the levels, however as many other people have mentioned, we were unable to reach level 5, as the rock face looked like a landslide. The fish were entertaining, as there were simply... More
