We went early, before the crowds. Absolutely perfect. We were always about 30 - hr. ahead of the main crowds (as it is a small hike to each waterfall/pool) so we were able to get awesome pictures, and have the place pretty much to ourselves. We've traveled the world, and these waterfalls are one of the top 3 in the... More

Came here last Friday and took the advice of arriving early. We had a hired car and so we could get to the Falls at 08:00 and there were a few early birds just like us. The first bus leaves Kanchanaburi at 8 and arrives at 9. You can get a private van with other tourists to get their earlier.... More

This 7 stages of waterfalls are beautiful and relaxing to picnic bring some food and drinks but no alcohol allow tho. I don't recommend the first level because it looks dirty and it gets all the water from all 6 stages into this last one. Start on the 2nd level which is 150 meters away from the level 1. The...

7 amazing cascades. Lot of tourist but it's normal because it's something really beautiful and lot of people have to see that. It's also nice to find cold water in this really hot region.

And make sure yourself are fit. Its quite a challenged climb up to the 7th level. And hope your skin are not that sensitive since the fishes really like you.

I've visited this waterfall quite a few times now, but it never gets old. The waterfall is located in the national park right next to Srinakharin dam, easily accessed by a car/motorcycle. Best time to visit is at the end of rainy season, around July - September. Although, there will always be enough water for you to play in all... More

The falls are ver popular. It is quite a steep walk to the top and at times it can be a bit of a scramble over rocks. However for most of the way up the pathway is well constructed. We visited in the dry season so whilst the water was flowing we did not see the falls at their best.... More

Quite a walk especially upto the top waterfall. During dry season waterfalls are not that strong - would imagine they would be more impressive during the rainy season. Falls 4 and 5 were the best to swim in. Got busy and very hot - worth going early in the morning to avoid the crowds. Opens at 6am. Golf buggies available... More

Waterfall is popular with both locals and tourists. Long ride from Kanchanaburi town but a good place to spend a day away from town. You can go by bus or private transport. The waterfalls get progressively more challenging as you reach for the top, which is the 7th waterfall. Food and drinks cannot be carried beyond waterfall 3. Need to... More
