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

Categories: Waterfalls, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 240+ 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.
