Our hotel staff thought it cost 100 Bhat/person to get in. We saw another board which stated 200 Bhat/person but they actually charged us 300 Bhat per person! It is pretty but really not worth it. I'd go somewhere else than there - it is a nice walk but nothing special and there were HUNDREDS of gross fish that pretty much attack you if you go into the pools.

Had a great time at the waterfalls. There are five stages but all quite easy. A few big rocks to get over but it was all part of the fun. Get some fish food and feed the carp. They will swim all around you. We went all the way to the last falls and took a dip. Was so refreshing. We had three kids, 10, 12 and 17 and we all managed with no issues. Highly recommend for a fun day out. Oh and on the way there you could possibly see a wild elephant. You have to drive through the area they live and you'll see massive elephant poo on the side of the road.

What a beautiful nature and fun hike with friends. I just wish we were allowed to hike all the way up. We were only allowed to go to level 5. But still a great experience. Specially all the beautiful butterflies.

We went to visit the water fall but once I realised a foreigner has to pay 10 times what a Thai does we as a family decided not to enter the park, if a foreigner visits the UK the UK government does not charged them any more than a UK citizen, take note Thailand or start to loose tourists

The waterfalls are located about 30 miles from Hua Hin and are well worth a day trip to. Pack your swimmers so you can cool of in the various different pools! Along with the fish. It costs 300B per person and 30B per car. At the start there is a small gift shop, toilets and refreshments before you start your trek. There are 5 different levels of the waterfalls accessible through the jungle paths. It’s steep in parts and requires some climbing over rocks so would advise trainers but I was fine in my flip flops. Each level has a pool to dip in before making the journey to the next level and in all it’s probably about 500-750 meters from bottom to top.

My wife and I were recommende to this place by Lorraine at Buffalo Bills. As we rented a car for our stay in Hua Hin the journey to the waterfall was not a hassle.Going into the falls we encountered a troop of about 50 wild monkeys walking along the side of the road. We must have spent 15 minutes just watching the antics of these animals.The waterfall itself was a good experience but we did not climb very far as it was hot and we are old. Going home we were lucky enough to encounter a wild elephant on the road. We could hear his herd in the jungle next to the road but we only saw the one.It was a highlight of our month in Thailand.

We went through Hua Hin Adventure Tours and a meal was included in the price. Wear good shoes as you need to trek - so no proper paths to walk up - and take a bottle of water. We went to level 4 but had time to stop at each level. Our guide pointed out things of interest and made sure the group stayed together, helping us through the more difficult spots. Couldn't believe the amount of butterflies there. Water teeming with carp and you can swim there too. Highlight was seeing a wild elephant walking down the road. Popular with both locals and tourists.

We drove from Hua Hin. Stopped to buy grilled chicken, sticky rice and papaya salad when we almost reached the fall for our picnic. However, if you miss this, there are more grilled chicken being sold at the fall. However, I read that this stall is not always opened. The distance from the carpark to the 1st level of the fall was pretty close. However, you are only allowed to bring food up to the 1st level. Therefore, we had out picnic there, right by the water's edge. The guards made sure that only drinks are allowed to be brought up to the next level. We went up till the 3rd level of the fall. Till then the path was OK but at times we had to hold on to the ropes attached to the side. It got a bit 'exciting' in some places. Apparently the higher you go the nicer the fall. It goes up till level 15. However, the water wasn't the clearest.
We were there on the weekend so there were lots of people. If you have a choice, do go on the weekdays instead.
There is a shower and toilet facility near 1st level.
This waterfall is in the national park. On our way out we encountered wild elephants crossing the road! That was really exciting but also nerve wracking since we are used to being close to tame elephants in elephant camps but these were really wild ones! Especially the 1st one we saw was huge and alone and it was zig zagging the road ahead of us and we were not sure what it was going to do next. The next lot was a whole herd of them including juniors! They crossed the road right in front of our car and then some trumpeted loudly - calling the rest that haven't crossed over. It was really exciting but we dared not stop the car.
If you have spare time and transportation, do visit Pala-u. If I'm not mistaken it took us 1.5hrs (60km) so you need to leave early from Hua Hin.
Being in a national park, there is a charge. Very cheap for locals but foreigners pay THB200.

I had no idea that this was a national park, just saw the waterfall on Google Maps and decided to ride my bicycle out there from Hua Hin (100km round trip). Well, on arrival there is a gate and they charge non-Thais 300 Baht and Thais 100 Baht. Since I don't like to support this type of pathetic racist behavior, I decided not to go in. Thanks for nothing Thai National Parks, I won't be back and I won't recommend it to others. However the ride out there was nice with some hills and great scenery.

This is one of those sights that charges 10x as much for tourists than for Thais. I don't mind paying double but 10x is insulting to the tourists Thailand purports to need. The place is miles and miles outside Hua Hin and taxis can be expensive and they play on the fact that after paying the taxi visitors are unlikely to give it a miss. In some ways it can be described as a scam...!
