This is truly a breathtakingly beautiful waterfall. We visited on the same day as a drive up Doi Inthanon so we didn’t have to pay another day of national park fees - 300B/adult, 150B/children. It is around a 600m undulating but mostly concreted walk from...More

We drove 2 hours there by moped. Worth it. The hike was super short and easy. We paid 620 baht to get in (300 per adult and 20 for the motorcycle) but it’s ok. When we got to the waterfalls we were very impressed. It’s...More

The falls, surrounding river bed and forest are lovely. Worth the effort to get there from Chiang Mai. Be careful to watch out for the green snakes near the river (poisonous vipers).

This is one of the best waterfalls ee have seen in South East Asia. Really big waterfall and impressive. The road to get there is all right and the entrance fee is the same as to enter to the national park (200 baths).

Mae Ya is Thailands largest waterfall with a height of 250 meters and a width of 100 or more meters. Getting there is a bit tricky because the signs leading one to the waterfall are small and often situated in a cluster of other signs....More

As the title, it would be best if you can team up with some locals and save big on entrance fee. Despite the fact that the area is well maintained, toilets are clean and view is GREAT, I still think THB300 is way too much....More
