Mae Sa Waterfall, Chiang Mai

(3.4/5 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.
