Mae Sa Waterfall, Chiang Mai

(3.9/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
The series of about ten cascades at Mae Sa Waterfall draws lots of locals as a picnicking and swimming spot. A hiking trail connects each cascade, but be prepared for a challenging trek, and take plenty of water and bug spray. If you plan to eat there, be sure to bring your own food. Put Mae Sa Waterfall at the forefront of your travel plans using our Chiang Mai vacation planner.

  • The Mae Sa Waterfall is actually a series of waterfalls with paths that you can hike through the forest (or you can drive to various levels by car). We took a picnic lunch and enjoyed it in a sala by ...  more »
  • We had booked a two day trekking trip and this place was part of the stop. It's pretty relaxing and some of our group went for a swim in the falls.  more »

  • I went along December 2016. It was late afternoon when I got there and there wasn't many other people there. This meant it was very peacefull. So I found out there are 10 levels to climb/hike up to. Ok so I started out and as I went was taking video and photos.It was more of a hike then I expected. You can if you like get in the water at the various levels. I carried on and was keeping an eye on the time as I saw a sign saying the attraction shuts at 5pm. I still had three levels to go at 4.15pm and I still had to make my way back down. So I hiked on but was disapointed to see the 10th level was shut off as it looked like the wooden platform that would give you the last "big amazing views" was burnned down ?!? Oh ok.... so no timetowaste and I made my way back down.Turnned out to be quite a workout as it goes as I had to move fast before the 5pm deadline. I did enjoy it but a shame about that 10th level.
  • Ok. Of the 10 levels of "waterfall" only one (maybe two) is worthwhile. Oh, the restaurant by the visitor center at the beginning of the nature trail is sheit.
  • I went there with my host and my friend :) The water in April was so cold! Not much water but still nice to visit! It would be nice if we can have small picnic
  • You can frolic in the waterfalls.
  • Very nice walk along a series of the smaller waterfalls.
