Hey, its Karin at Ultimate Thailand. If tropical waterfalls are your thing, you’re in for a treat in Thailand… Thailand is home to some of the most spectacular waterfalls in South East Asia. If you think you might fancy ignoring TLC and chasing those waterfalls after all, here’s our list of the top waterfalls in Thailand…
Umpang Thee Lor Sue Waterfalls, Tak
You’ll find this beautiful waterfall in the Umphang Wildlife Sanctuary and it is claimed by many that this is the biggest and most beautiful waterfall in Thailand. The best time to visit is during the wet season and it takes about 30 minutes to walk to the top where you can admire the stunning views.
Mae Surin Waterfalls, Mae Hong Son
Set amongst the mountains in Namtok Mae Surin National Park, Mae Surin Waterfall has been described as a ‘not-to-miss attraction’. If you decide that you want to see what all the fuss is about, you can visit all year round, but the best time to go is November to December … it is then that you can combine your visit with a trip to Doi Mae U-Kho, the sunflower hill which blooms in spectacular style for just a couple of weeks at this time of year.
Mae Khamin Waterfalls, Kanchanaburi
One of the major attractions in Sri Nakharin National Park, Mae Khamin has seven tiers to boast of. You can walk to the waterfall and trek through the forest if you wish … be sure to check with the information office which routes are the best ones. If you are so overcome by all this beauty, you can spend the night in the park.
Erawan Waterfalls, Kanchanaburi
Kanchanaburi spoils us with waterfalls! There’s also the beautiful Erawan falls, found deep amongst rough jungle and described as ‘one of the most beautiful falls in Asia’. You can also spend the night here if you wish. About 10km north of the falls is another local attraction, Pra That Cave … squeeze through the small opening to reveal an assembly of rocks that look like they belong to another world!
Khao Soi Dao Waterfalls, Chantaburi
Don’t just settle for the lower levels of this remarkable 16 level waterfall … sure, the are beautiful! But, if you can find it within yourself to lace up your walking shoes and make your way to levels 9 and 10, you’ll be glad you did … it’s here that you will see water collect in a pool half way down before it continues to fall to the lower levels. And while you made it this far, you might as well keep going to the top!
