Location: we were driving our own car and it took little more than an hour to reach the entrance of the attraction. Nice sightseeing during the ride. Go in the morning - possibility to see more animals Climbing: no real climbing as it is not so steep until level 5, so, no need for hiking shoes. I was happy because... More

Went up to 5th level. NOT SUITABLE for people out of shape, wearing sandals or dresses. Not suitable seniors. Some areas of the foot path are very narrow with a drop. Large rocks/boulders to climb up or down. Path is not marked, no footbridge past level 1 to cross river. River crossing are slippery and risky. Expensive entrance, Residents of... More

About an hour west of Hua Hin, it's a long tuk tuk ride, but worth it when you get there. There are many levels of the river and falls, which get progressively harder to go up. Definitely wear clothes you can get wet in, and hiking boots or sneakers as you'll be climbing over rocks and steep trails in the... More

Nice day out but quite some time on my motorbike. Problem is that when you want to go swimming /bathing/paddling in one of the waterfall pools where are you going to leave the keys/bags (securely/safely). I preferred to keep an eye on my bag personally.

Managed to walk/climb to 5th of 15 levels. Strenuous if you want to go higher than 2nd level. Each level has lovely cool pool for swimming & many fish to keep you company.waterfalls still running even though it was the dry season. Many butterflies. Only 1 hour from Hua Him.

Pala-U is a short trip away from Hua Hin and the waterfall offers a cool and relaxing place for an afternoon (or longer). Bring your swimmers because a refreshing 'dip' is certainly a requirement. And for those wishing to stay longer, you'll find places to sleep in town and probably see some wild elephants at night time as that is... More

If your looking at walking to the top, choose the right time to go. We first went in the rainy season and managed to get 3/4 of the way up. This took over an hour and a half with no visible route at some points. Our friend slipped on a large stone which you had to cross and on the... More

I just went to Kaen Krachan today [15/2/2015] for a motorcycle ride (from Bangkok), got lost and ended up at Pala-u waterfall. I was asked to pay a 300bt entrance (foreigner) fee and 100bt for my Thai friend. Any other park arount the country would charge the Thai fee if you show a Thai drivers' license or a work permit...
