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...

Went there on a Monday morning, took us about 1.5 hours by scooter from Hua Hin last 10km the roads were not as good but roadworks are happening so getting better soon. 600 baht each for entry plus 20 baht for bike. First two levels are easy but does get harder after that, walking over lots of rocks etc. We... More

Its a long drive from Hua Hin (an hour and a half) and you pay 400 bhat (about £8) entrance fee as a foreigner but take your climbing/sturdy shoes and a towel and see how many levels you can get too (there are 15 and few go beyond 3) The butterflies; the water, fish and national park jungle ambience is...

Great 1/2 day out. Bit of a hike up to the very top but really worth it - even if only for the butterflies!

I hired a motorbike and it took 50 mins to get there. The scenery makes the journey worthwhile as it is stunning. Once there, there is a bit of a climb but an enjoyable way to spend half a day. Worth a visit!
