Hiking to get there... is not easy

We started the hike from the parking lot. It gets progressively steep and I am glad I had brought my walking stick. Some areas required assistance from my husband because it is a... read more

Went on a rainy morning and had the place to ourselves. But, on the way out we passed many groups heading to the falls.

We learned about this waterfall at our hotel in Chiang Rai and were so happy we took the time to hike to it. The surrounding jungle was lush and pristine. My wife botonist found wild Orchinds and the kids loved seeing the impressive falls.

We went there on a scooter. We have not checked the opening hours and have arrived there at 16:20 only to be told we cannot get in as they will be closing in 10 minutes. After playing our "pretty pleases" we were allowed to enter. You need to cover 1500 meters on foot in order to get to the waterfall.... More

From famous Silvertemple it's only less than an half an hour drive but it couldn't be a more different experience. Khun Korn Waterfall forces visitors into an 2 kilometers walk (one way) and with the walk starts the experience. Most tourists never would have another chance to walk in a southeast Asian forest - here they have and after around... More

We started the hike from the parking lot. It gets progressively steep and I am glad I had brought my walking stick. Some areas required assistance from my husband because it is a difficult hike. I recommend wearing long sleeve shirts, good closed shoes and bring insect repellent. There are lots of bugs. I did not make it to the... More

We were spoiled as we spent the day before this on the ATV adventure and Khun Korn Waterfall is nowhere near as good as the one on that adventure.

The drive to the Waterfall is bumpy at time but the views are amazing. The walk to the Waterfall is alot of uphill but not overly difficult. And the path is easy to follow especially compared to alot we've been to in Asia. The Waterfall is freezing but amazing to see and not full of tourists either.

The walk is worth it, if you don't mind scrambling through approximately 4 kilometers (there and back) of well-marked forest trail. Take water with you. There was a short thundershower as we walked up, so we didn't meet anyone along the way. The sun came when we were back near the car park, and we saw several groups of people... More

I drove here on a moped with my partner, it's pretty out the way and in the sticks so I'd say hire a scooter or a car or go with a group on a tour. Not a place to get a Tuk Tuk to as it'll be expensive and bumpy!! It's about a 25 minute walk uphill to the waterfall... More

Good place to visit. A trekking 1.4km (but more in my opinion) through the jungle on a practicable path with some difficult areas. As you reach the waterfall, you can take good pictures on the path or in the water... free access, free parking, drinks and food available at the parking only. Reasonable prices.
