Bua Thong Waterfalls (Nam Phu Chet Si), Chiang Mai

(4.7/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Situated just an hour’s drive from the city, Bua Thong Waterfalls (Nam Phu Chet Si) showcases a natural limestone waterfall, renowned for its visually appealing and unusual aesthetics, particularly the way sunlight dapples and splits in the area, creating awe-inspiring rainbows. The spot contains quite a few convenient and beginner-friendly climbing spots, thanks to the mineral coating which makes the surface surprisingly non-slippery. Be sure to ask locals, or do your own research on how to get here beforehand, as there there’s not a lot of signs marking the route to the waterfall. Be sure to bring towels, as you'll likely get wet. Plan your visit to Bua Thong Waterfalls (Nam Phu Chet Si) and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Chiang Mai tour planner.

  • 离开清迈前一天和朋友一家三口包车从酒店来到这里,差不多1个多小时。这里真的是非常值得推荐给带小孩的家庭,2月份水量不是很大,正适合我们带孩子来玩。路上我们买了些吃的,在入口野餐后换上泳装,来这里的大多是欧美游客,大家在瀑布里上上下下的,我这种腿脚没有那么灵活的人靠着瀑布里的长绳也挑战了自己,真的太好玩了!  more »
