5 Waterfalls to Hunt in Thailand – Experience the Natural Magic!

Thailand is a magical land and one of the most awe-inspiring things about it are the secluded, mysterious rainforests and in the midst of them, the sudden appearance of a waterfall. It is a feeling that excites anyone who loves nature. Here are some waterfalls you can explore.


Mae Surin Waterfall

Thanks to its iconic location at the Namtok Mae Surin National Park, Mae Surin waterfall is one of the more popular waterfalls that are frequented by tourists who flock to the north-western border of Thailand to witness the natural beauty. The fall is spectacular thanks to its sheer 300 ft drop and a beautiful pool at the bottom. The trail that leads to the waterfall is in itself a beautiful one from which you can get various breath-taking angles of the falls. However, you must keep in mind that the rock tends to be very slippery.


Khlong Chak Waterfall

Thailand's Andaman Coast is no newcomer to international adoration thanks to the natural wonders the area has been amply blessed with. This also includes the island of Koh Lanta in the Krabi Province. A 30-minute hike into the national park will take you past gorgeous forests and stunning geological features before you arrive at the clear waters of the falls. It will disappear during the dry season from April to October so keep that in mind.


Erawan Waterfall

If you are in tip-top shape from being a frequent visitor to a fitness centre in Bangkok such as the state-of-the-art gym in Maitria Rama 9 Residence, you will find the 3-hour drive to Kanchanaburi province and the 1.5 km hike an easy feat. The waters of Erawan Falls is clear enough that you can snorkel in them and there are 3 tiers each with its magical atmosphere especially being situated in a dense forest.


Mae Ya Waterfall

A short drive from Chiang Mai will bring you to Mae Ya Waterfall. It is located within the Doi Inthanon National Park and is a whopping 800 ft and 300 m wide. In the rainy season, it is so lush you will hear the roar of the falls long before you come anywhere near it. The best way to visit the falls is by car, though there will be a bit of a hike involved. It would take you no longer than 10 minutes from Chiang Mai.


Haew Suwat Waterfall

Being just 70 ft, the Haew Suwat Waterfall is not there to break any records. But size isn't everything when it comes to waterfalls which you will find out when you visit these falls. Situated amid the lush Khao Yai National Park in central Thailand, Haew Suwat Falls is famous for having been featured in movies and also having a man-made viewing area from which you can take spectacular photographs. It is just a 5-minute walk to the falls from the parking area making it popular among families that visit the region.
