Went here in a group of families numbering 15 people, three generations spanning ages 5 to 65. Amazing setting but quite a long drive out from Hua Hin where we were staying. Made a day trip of it including a stop off at a vineyard along the way. The waterfalls are absolutely beautiful and the sequence of them makes for... More

Very nice way to get out of the city for a few hours. We visited in January and there weren't many other people there. The walk wasn't too difficult, just a little rocky at times. We went up to level 4 and then had a swim under the waterfall, with all the fish nibbling on our fingers and toes.

The waterfall is inside a national park about an hour plus drive from Hua Hin. (if you do early enough in the day you can combine with the vineyard). The drive is easy and is sign posted from the city. The entrance fee for thai's is THB 20 and Foreigners THB 200, sorry but yes another one of those thai... More

This place is well worth the ride out from Hua Hin or Cha am but it is worth getting up early to arrive before most of the trippers. It really is very pleasant if you can get there before 10.00am. There is quite a bit of wildlife about (but again that tends to get frightened off by the crowds). The... More

We walked to level 5, it was an easy walk in proper shoes (I wouldn't have ranted yo do it in beach foot wear). Hundreds of fish to feed - bag of fish food was only THB10. Sign posts past level 5 poor, it is recommended you organise a guide if you want to go higher.

this waterfall is pretty far from Hua Hin, I hired a motorbike and drove there, it was a nice drive through the countryside. So when you finally get there you find out that foriegners have to pay 10 times the price of admission as Thai people (illegal under thai law by the way) because i'd come an hour by bike,... More

A really enjoyable day up in the mountains. We used a local taxi to take us out there which was much cheaper than the tours. Have some lunch at the local shop, absolutely delicious.

Beautiful scenery, lots of differently coloured huge butterflies and multiple levels of the waterfall inviting for a swim with not-shy fish - a true experience!

Pala U waterfall is probably the easiest part of Kaeng Krachan National Park to reach from Hua Hin. It's a pleasant drive through some interesting landscape, but the waterfall itself is really a series of about 8 waterfalls, some longer than others. It is possible to climb all the way to the top, though foreigners are expected to take a... More

It is worth the drive, very beautiful scenery and wonderful trails and waterfalls. Select a good day and bring your swim trunks and good trail shoewear.
