We went on a half day trip to the Huay toh Waterfall and an hour elephant trekking. It was lovely and cost about 800 baht each. We thought we'd rather do it that way than pay for the taxi and go ourselves. The waterfall was lovely but we went in the height of the driest month, April so there wasn't... More

we thought the national parks were all further up north in the country, but then we learned about Phanom Bencha. Technically, its a small national park, but dont worry you will never notice that. big enought o get lost in for days. Did a great elephant trek there, with washing the elephant after the trek. our kids were over the... More

We arrived around 10.00 PM at the park and where amongst the first visitors. I travel Thailand for 15 years now, but have never seen a better kept place like this (exept the hotel gardens). The very friendly staff was cleaning the walkways from fallen leafs and carried them back into the forrest. Just beautyful pure nature to enjoy. Picknick... More

We went in February, so there wasn't much water flowing, but it was still pretty, and we went for a refreshing dip. After, we went on the 2km nature hike. I'll echo the 1 star reviewer in that it was very steep and strenuous. It starts easy but then goes straight up the hill. The way down was similarly steep... More

If you love nature then look no further, Phanom Bencha is simply stunning. Acres and acres of forest to explore, waterfalls, wild life, view points... Also some great value accommodation close by for those that just can't leave the place behind.

It's about a 30 minute scooter ride to the National Park and a short walk to the waterfall. We had a picnic there too with food from Tesco in Ao Nang. The waterfall is very pretty and you can take a dip in it but it can be a little busy.

We went on our scooter for the day, only 100 baht entry with 20. Baht for scooter parking. Only 300 metres in and we came across a magnificent 3 tier waterfall. We climbed to the top via easily accessible route. Can't really swim but can enjoy the refreshing water none the less. View point is 700m climb which we did... More

You may not notice the water fall from afar but once you continue walking up to the end you will appreciate everything. Small area to swim with but the water falls is freezing. The cascade of waters flowing into your body is like a massage of nature. Don't just look at it, go and swim. No bathing suit? Under pants... More

Wow! What a lovely spot. Arrived after a trip to Crystal Pool, at 16.15... The park closes at 16.30!! The entry guards told us not to worry, that the gate wouldn't close to get out until 18.00. Plenty of time to enjoy the waterfall... and it was! Possibly the best time to be there as most had already gone, so... More

Beautiful waterfalls, 5 tiers high, elephant trekking. Good and reasonable refreshment and overnight accommodation in National Park Bungalows. Watch out for Mickey's English Fish and Chips Restaurant on the way to the Park Entrance - Yummy!
