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

(4.7/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • 瀑布就在清邁大學附近,下了素貼山就可以抵達。 如果是素貼山一日遊的話,建議遊覽完畢雙龍寺之後,可以坐red car直接到清迈大学附近的waterfall。當地司機師傅都知道這個地方。 尤其值得推薦的是,你可以體驗到免費的小魚足療哦。脫下鞋子,直接泡在清澈、冰涼的水中,池子中的小魚兒就會遊過來,舔舐你的腳丫子。非常有趣,且純天然呀。 
  • This place is amazing! It's so fun to climb up and down the falls -- possible because of the grippy limestone rocks. We just caught one of the red pickup truck taxis in Chiang Mai and the driver drove...  more »
  • It was unique to feel the sticky rocks with their limestone deposits but not really worth the very long windy drive to get there. The facilities were really nasty
