What a wonderful place. This park is full of life & vibrancy. We were lucky because it's been raining recently so the waterfall was very powerful & magnificent. Definitely worth the drive.

Tall and Beautiful!
Sep 2020
It is one kilometer from the parking to the Haew Rarok Waterfalls. It took us one half hour for one way hike. The Waterfalls are tall and beautiful. We took many pictures.

The walk is only 1km but the final descent is 200 very steep steps. Wear good walking shoes. It is lovely.

Great to visit despite high entrance fees
Dec 2019 • Family
My family visited Khao Yai National Park during our December family trip to Bangkok. Personally think that the entrance fees to national park is quite pricey as it cost 400 baht for adults, 200 baht for children and 100 baht for a car plus local driver. However it is still worth a visit if you like nature.

The park is very huge and distance among attractions is far so you will spend a lots of time on driving. There are many monkeys along the road so be very careful if you are self driving. We spent around 4 hours there visiting 2 waterfalls, stopping at some view points and visitor centre.

For Haew Narok Waterfall, be expected to walk about 15-20 mins from carpark to the waterfall. The trails are paved and you will pass through some wooden bridges in between and it is an easy walk before you come to the last part of the challenging steep staircases. You must climb down these staircase to reach the waterfall view point. It will be challenging for old peoples and young kids who are less than 4 years old. The waterfall is about 60meter height but the water level has dried up a lot when we visited in December. Think the view will be great if water level is high. Nonetheless it was a nice visit for my family. Glad that we had added KY national park into our itinerary.

Rather pricey day out
Dec 2019
This review is for the entire national park.

Admission is 400 baht for foreign adults, 200 baht for kids (3-12 years old) and 50 baht each for cars and a local driver. So all in, a rather expensive day out, considering you are only allowed to hike one trail without a guide and make a couple of stops to view the scenery. It’s different of course if you’re camping overnight.

We saw a lot of monkeys, some deers and what looked like a salamander from a distance. About 75% of the day was spent driving as the attractions are very far apart. Food options are limited.

Haew Narok is supposed to be the highlight of the trip, however beware, the final descent via very steep wooden steps is not suitable for very young children and those who don’t like heights. You will have to return the same way to the car park, so again the steps aren’t great for those who don’t like climbing.

Good trek
Dec 2019 • Family
You will need to be physically fit to go on this trail. First 20mins are just flat grounds but towards the base of the waterfall are really steep and dangerous steps. If you dare, descent down to enjoy the majestic waterfall amongst locals and tourists.

Attractive Waterfall
Oct 2019
We opt to alight at Pua Kluaimai Campground & do the 3 km trail through the forest to reach the Hae Narok waterfall. The walk was tougher than we thought & required a certain level of fitness - climbing over huge tree trunks lying across the trail, crossing streams (on a tree trunk 'bridge'), muddy ground, uneven path with lots of steep upslope & downslope climbs). The estimated time for completion is 2 hours, we took about 1 1/2 hours. We enjoyed the trekking (with all the flora & fauna, creek, mini waterfalls, cool fresh air), most of it along the creek.
The final portion (from the official car park) was a 1 km walk on pavement. However, it requires climbing steep steps.
The Haew Narok Waterfall was the most famous waterfall in the National Park, though we only got to view a section of it (It tumbles in 3 drops over a total height of 150 m). The fall we saw was attractive & worth the walk (& climb) in.

Family bonding hike but be prepared
Jun 2019 • Family
We went to Khao Yai National Park not expecting to do any hike (just short walks maybe) cos I have an elderly and a 10 and 4 yr old. When we read the sign that says just 1km trail to the waterfall, we thought it should be easy peasy. The path is safe (no leeches unlike the Kong Kaeo nature trail) but when we got to the steep steps...omg...climbing up takes stamina and endurance and thank God my young kid was enthusiastic and able to climb. I don't recommend if your kids are whiny or not nature enthusiasts. It can be dangerous if kids are not cooperative. We went beginning June and had some rain so waterfall didn't look too bad but not magnificent type. It was a good family bonding hike where my kids enjoyed the insects and bugs they saw.

Worth going
Feb 2019 • Couples
The path leading to the waterfall is quite far and the series of steps are really quite steep. Take your time to climb back up.
The view isn't quite as spectacular as there hasn't been any rain for some time. But still worth visiting. We went on a Monday to avoid the local weekend crowd and there was only another couple there. They told us during the wet months, the wind will blow the water onto the viewing platform.
Best time to go is June to November according to the picture posted at the entrance

Don’t bother thai rip of
Dec 2018
I Don’t mind paying twice the price of Thai’s but when it’s 400 baht and the Thai’s pay 40 baht that’s taking the piss a little to much. No thanks keep your national park plenty more to see in the area
