It's a steep walk down and an even steeper walk back up (45 minutes or so), but the falls themselves are worth it. The local ladies will walk with you to sell you cold drinks and point out where you can change if you want...More

Please disregard my review of 2016 with the same title, it is not accurate, but I could not find any way to ask to remove it. As I told in my review I saw it from afar, and no water was visible, but it turns...More

I will not attend this attraction due to this behaviour. Changes need to be made for tourist to feel comfortable. Thank you all for the information.

4 of us went to visit the waterfall, having read the previous reviews about pushy guides we made sure that we were very clear at the start that we did not want any guides and that worked well. The walk was down a road. One...More

Nothing to say about the falls there are impressive and one of the biggest one I’ve seen in Southeast Asia. What you really have to know it’s that you can and should go with the motorbike until the fall. The way is steep but if...More

We traveled here from Mandalay by car. Takes some 90 minutes. There are two options: 1. Either you have time and energy/skills for medium difficult hiking, or 2. You just want to see this place from dedicated view terrace. We took the option 2. View...More

A wonderful place but really a very steep climb for 45 min and about 600m height difference. One of our older team members in the end had to be carried. Be prepared!

Some tips; 1.- If you go by motorbike you can either park it where the 2 “restaurants” are or drive all the way directly to the waterfalls. The road is mostly paved, although steep and some tricky parts not paved. 2.- if you walk you...More

This was a lovely morning venture-the downhill (40 minutes) took longer than the uphill for us! Paved road, winding, good chance to see flowers, trees and nature. Powerful and impressive falls at the base- have a cup of tea or noodles and enjoy the surroundings....More
