Given how well-known and popular these falls are, I was expecting the worst....hordes of people, lots of noise, over-development of the pathways and facilities, and rampant commercialisation. But whoever is in charge of this part of the national park seems to be doing a remarkably...More

I went in late November and it was an easy hike to the top of the falls. I wore trainers, but I saw many people doing it in sandals and flip-flops. The water was an amazing shade of blue and there were lots of fish...More

It’s quite a hike to the top where there are far less people. It’s ok for all ages though, it took us a good hour to get up there but we were going full on all the way. We stopped at various falls on the...More

If you have the time and energy, I'd recommend climbing all 7 tiers of the waterfalls - although the prettiest is probably the 2nd and 5th tier, the 7th tier is simply breathtaking with the sheer majesty of its height. I really took my time...More

Amazing day trip out of Bangkok. About a 6hr return journey from central Bangkok but very much worth it! After extensively researching methods of getting to the falls (on our own or tour) we decided to go by tour in the end to save the...More

If your experiences of Thailand is limited to Bangkok and island beaches, Erawan falls will surprise you. The views from the drive from Kanchanaburi is itself a surprise. Weather turns temperate cool from the heat one usually associates with Thailand in Nov. We had a...More

This is arguably one of the most beautiful waterfalls I have every seen. It is well worth going to see. The hike is fairly easy and there are 7 waterfalls in total. At one of the waterfalls the fish come to nibble at your feet.

We took the train there and then a private car on the way back. The private car took much longer than I would’ve thought. The train was a true experience!!

1 day trips from BKK :) (3 Replies)
Dear TripAdvisor community, It is my first time in BKK therefore to make sure I would do everything "safely" I booked a hotel for 7 days in BKK. I know it is the best idea I had. However, I would like to do visit some of the wonders outside BKK. I would like to go to Erawan Falls and the Kao Yai National Park but I need to do it as 1 day trip and alone (meaning I have no one accompanying me, but I don't mind at all joining any group). So far, I am considering to take a minibus from...More

I would drive. Been to both places and I drove. Erawan is great. Didnt like Khao Yai. Didnt see many animals in Khao Yai. You need to stay overnight and be lucky to see much.

Erawan Falls in April (14 Replies)
To the knowledgeable ones! Is there much water in the falls usually around the end of April? Will it still be worth the trip? Much appreciated to hear from you.

Response frompornsak p|
That depends on the volumes of rainfall in the area in the recent few weeks. April has some rain, but is mostly very hot and dry, so water levels may be low. Best seen in November! But the area is very picturesque, so IMHO still worth visiting.

Highly recommend the overnight lake tour in Khao Sok the Nam Talu cave was also great. Hiking in the national park in KS village was along a service road & nothing special but if jungle is a new environment to you then i can see the interest. You can take an overnight bus from KS village back to Bangkok. KS village is ok for a night and a day, you can organise the lake tour when there and return in time for bus to BK
