This was a relaxing day away from the hustle and bustle of the city. About a 90 minute drive in an air-conditioned van made the trip quite pleasant. Facilities are limited but that is offset by the free admission to the falls. It's quite easy to traverse up and down these limestone falls but we do recommend taking water shoes along.

I'm not sure why but Thai people really seem to love waterfalls. This has resulted in me spending countless hours seeing mediocre or even dry waterfalls all over Thailand.

This waterfall was an altogether different experience. It was a great day, a very different waterfall and totally worth the effort to see it (40 minute drive).

Tips, bring swimmers, bring your own food (restaurant will be bad or closed). As you come along the entrance road to the waterfall, there is a very interesting cave (after climbing about 250 stairs). You don't need a guide, it's just one large chamber with a great Buddha. You can turn the lights on yourself. Do this before the waterfall as it is a sweaty climb. The cave is a turn to the right about 100m before the waterfall car park. You can see the stairs from the road.

what a wonderful day when we had one day trip together

Remembered when I was a campus student, we always visited here once a year for retreat.

It is really worthy to be here for hang out with friends and family..just make our own picnic and do something is called light outing lol. not too adventurous

you have a whole day to explore 7 colored spring and climb up and play waterfall which has 7 steps

Getting somewhere to have a nap or foodie time

try to get a day off and drag yourself from social network, make us to be in real world

Truly Blessed Day

We ended up renting a moto (scooter) for two days and put on over 200km touring around. What a fantastic way to visit some of the sites surrounding town and having a blast doing so.

The waterfalls are great. Super fun to walk up. Remember the whiter the rock the less slippery it is (some spots had a small amount of slippery rocks). Lots of families go here so it is a fun local spot. We did not see one person wearing a bathing suit (even the men). Most had on pants and t shirts. We ended up doing the same (well shorts and a t shirt) out of respect for others. Remember to bring a change of clothes !! Fun way to cool off

In all our travels this is one of the most unique waterfall we have every visited. A must see if you are travelling to Chiang Mai. You have to walk down and just trust you won't slip.
