The falls are about an hours drive from Hua Hin and we chose to go on a private tour. We were driven to the falls and asked what level we'd like to go upto. It can take 8hours one way all the way to the top. We chose to go to level 5 as the waterfall was great here and... More

Well worth the trip from Hua hin approx about 1 hr drive . The trek up through the rainforest was awesome as was the waterfalls in the way we only got to level 5 but if you have time keep going. You will need mosquito repellent

Great tour of the mountain river through the jungle forest. We really had a good rest at the end of lunch at a Thai cafe.

The lower areas are somewhat family friendly, but even then, perhaps a bit too tricky or dangerous for little ones. If you're feeling adventurous, you can keep making your way higher and higher up, toward Burma, and it is absolutely stunning what you'll find.

i drove there from hua hin, took me about an hour to get there. it costs 300 baht per person plus an additional cost for a vehicle, can't remember how much but negligible. I only managed to get to level 2 as my girlfriend was afraid of heights. with that little amount of trek we did, all I can say... More

75km drive (but the road is probably the best part of the excursion!) to see a dirty rivulet for 12€ (probably much more if your kids are not Thai coz 'Farangs' pay 3 time more!) like you can see a million for free in every part of Europe! I read a few recession and I truly wonder if have been... More

Interesting place to see and to hear many jungle voices. We climbed to 5th level and after that there was a sign not to enter forward. When we came back, we saw a big green snake near the path. Had no idea was it poisonous, just run to past it. After the first level not suitable for small children or... More

Took a taxi for 2000 from Hua Hin. The drive took 1,5 hours. The path to different levels of the waterwalls was really rough at some places and you had to literally hang on to some ropes occasionally. Not difficult though and our 8 year old managed the route easily and enjoyed the challenges of it too. We went on... More

Visited this attraction recently as the photos showed people walking up the side of the waterfall but there is no foot path at the beginning instead you have to climb over rocks and boulders before you really have the waterfalls, no hand holast and absolutely not suitable for those with walking difficulties

We were picked up at the hotel, it took roughly about an hour from Amari hotel in Hua Hin on the way out tour guide stopped at a 'pineapple plantation' which both my boyfriend and I enjoyed as the lady told us how it grows, what they...
