5 Incredible Waterfalls in Thailand – Flowing Wonders of Beauty

Part of the joy of exploring the great outdoors in Thailand is the chance to come across some of the most idyllic waterfalls in the world. Many of them are set amidst forests or jungles which add to the charm and the adventure; here are five such waterfalls well worth visiting on your next holiday.


Khlong Chak Waterfall

Those looking to visit this waterfall will have to head to the island of Koh Lanta in the Krabi Province; it can be found within the scenic environs of the Mu Ko Lanta National Park. The trail to the Khlong Chak Waterfall will take one past local farms and through a jungle area (be prepared to get your feet a bit wet); before too long you will hear the sound of the cascading water. The sight of the falls especially when the water is in full flow during the rainy season is truly marvellous; the clear blue pool at its base wonderfully contrasts with the red sand that can be found around as well.


Nang Rong Waterfall

This well-known waterfall is located in the Khao Yai National Park, a little over two hours away from Bangkok. Amongst the key features of the Nang Rong Waterfall are the multiple tiers that the water descends along causing natural pools to form as well. Set amidst lush forest backdrops, the pools at each level add a sense of enchantment and are great spots to cool off in! Nearby are some local eateries too; you may have eaten at the top restaurants in Thailand, but do look to try the authentic dishes on offer here as well.


Soi Dao Waterfall

Tucked away amidst the Soi Dao Wildlife Sanctuary, the Soi Dao Waterfall is another natural wonder well worth taking in. An ideal site for an excursion, it is within easy reach for those staying at a Chanthaburi hotel in the region including the property of Chatrium Hotels & Residences. One of the distinguishing features of this waterfall is that it has 16 tiers from the base to its highest point. The trek up each level to reach the top can be challenging but is ultimately worth it including for the inspiring vistas that await.


Erawan Waterfall

Within the Erawan National Park in Kanchanaburi is where you will find the Erawan Waterfall. Amongst the most stunning waterfalls in Thailand, this site has seven tiers which span around 1.5 km; each of these tiers has a name and each is worth visiting; do keep in mind the trail will get harder as you make the ascent. On your adventure, you will come across clear ponds with fish, pools ideal for swimming and breath-taking backdrops. To see all seven tiers it takes approximately three hours and this site can be explored without a guide too.


Bang Pae Waterfall

Those travelling to the island of Phuket should plan a visit to the Bang Pae Waterfall an ideal spot to get away from the crowds and enjoy the tranquillity of nature. It can be found at the Khao Phra Thaeo National Park and though relatively small in size (around 10 metres in height), it is no less beautiful to behold. During the rainy season, the waters are at its fullest and the pool at the base of the falls is ideal for a refreshing dip. The picturesque setting also makes this spot well-suited for a picnic, while there are trails nearby for hiking enthusiasts too.
