Mae Sa Waterfall, Chiang Mai

3.8
#2 of 12 in Nature in Chiang Mai
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.

  • The waterfalls here are spectacular defiantly worth the visit, however I’d say you’d have to be slightly physically fit and be able to walk up hill constantly to reach all of the best views. Food and ...  more »
  • By taxi, it costs circa €15 and from old town + back. The taxi driver will wait, by the way, you can arrange spacious round trip. 2.5 hours should be sufficient, if you fall in the water remain seated or want in the refreshing water. It is worth to 100%. The area is not crowded, I met only 5 or 6 people. The March from level zero to level ten worth necessarily, it runs through the rustic Woods and sees a new waterfall or a new river meander all 200 m. High-heeled shoes are not suitable, fit sneakers. Take something drinkable, it's quite stuffy and extremely humid. On the way back to Chiang Mai the driver nearby temple to ask after a right of the road: I have rarely seen a so impressive facility. Have fun!!!

  • 10 separate waterfalls spread out over a 1.5km riverside hike. While no single waterfall is worth the trip from Chiang Mai, as a whole this is well worth the drive and modest entry fee (adults approx 100b). The right hand path is most impressive, especially the viewing platform above Level 3 beside the car park.
  • It is a beautiful waterfall, to get there u have to walk about 15 km there and back. Take water and some snacks with you and suitable shoes to cross the stream 37 times. Some parts are steep and slippery but really nice.
  • One of the better water falls in and around that area.. we went on our own bikes out there taking the highway from bangkok The waterfall had different levels and a nice restaurant but we could not eat there as we were running short of time
  • A series of 10 cascades over about 2km, not high but beautiful (see the photo of the wall map in the visitor center). There are 3 parking areas, with no. 3 being near cascade no 4, after which you walk up to cascade 10. A relatively easy walk with some steps and rocky areas.
  • Beautiful waterfall and nice trails, watch out for black n yellow spiders! And be sure to take a refreshing plunge into the water, if you are lucky you will find the cave spot!
