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

The Pala U Waterfalls are simply beautiful, and can be enjoyed by all ages. There are 11 levels of the waterfalls, and being abled, we went to the top level and were swimming with the fish and having a free massage underneath the waterfall. But there are swimming areas on every level, the butterflies that are around you are beautiful... More

FYI - If you are frail, disabled, very young or very old, this is NOT for you due to how bad the trail becomes (You will be climbing rocks, holding onto ropes and scaling the waterfall). Went as part of a four part trip including the Elepant Foundation, Pala-U Waterfall, Vineyard and Temple. Upon arrival you need to pay the... More

We were all excited to try and conquer a few levels more than 4 as written on reviews! But it was disappointing as they had no signs after level 4 and we tried taking a path with nearly a 90degree climb which was slippery and dangerous! Had to give up half way as it got too scary! If there were... More

There are apparently 15 levels or so to this waterfall. How anyone ever gets to the top is beyond me. We got to level 4 with a four year old in tow, which felt like a major achievement but in hindsight I probably wouldn't recommend taking young children. As others have said, no real paths past level 1/2 and it... More

The Government is trying to encourage tourists yet charges foreigners 5 times what a local pays to enter and its it's just a creek in the jungle with a steep tough climb to see anything.
