Pa La-U Waterfall, Kaeng Krachan

Inspirock Rating:
3.8/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web
Situated within of the largest national parks in Thailand, Pa La-U Waterfall remains one of the area's premier natural attractions. The 60 km (37 mi) drive from Hua Hin takes you through picturesque rolling hills and is an added bonus to visiting the waterfall. Climbing to the top of the cascade can be a challenge for older visitors or those with health issues, though visitors with some hiking experience usually have little trouble traversing the terrain. As you ascend, look for small pools teeming with marine wildlife and serving as ideal rest stops. Once at the top, take in the views sweeping across Thailand and neighboring Burma. Look out for gibbons in the surrounding forest, easily spotted with binoculars. To visit Pa La-U Waterfall on your trip to Kaeng Krachan, use our Kaeng Krachan trip itinerary planner.

  • Really great trip! Goods with a guide (could as well as excellent English even german) there. Pure nature! Have seen even a chameleon. The main waterfall is on level 4. There are hundreds of carp on all levels of the waterfall. For 10 baht (0.25 cent), you can buy before some fish feed, which you can later start. Very much recommended. Feasible entirely with children.

  • The drive took about an hour and a half through scenic country. Road is in good shape and was a very relaxing part of the day. The falls themselves was a pleasant change from the seaside town of Hau H...  read more »
  • Great fun following the creek up the hill and swimming in the various water holes with thousands of fish. Quite a rugged walk but well worth it. A good hour drive through pineapple country from Hua Hi...  read more »
  • Fantastic place. You go up level by level, and each level has it's own waterfall. It's like hikers dream. There's a lot of fish in ponds under the waterfalls, it's fun to feed it.
  • This place wants serenity not the most beautiful waterfall. They want to keep it quiet like this. That is why they charge you too expensive because they do not want so many people to destroy the nature. Mind you thought before you type it down.
  • For the high entrance fee they should do a little bit more of maintenance. It is not clean and the trail is hard to find and walk. You can only go up to level 5 out of 15. However great nature but overall disappointing.
  • Very beautiful place. Calm and serene. The climb is quite taxing. So wear comfortable shoes, light clothing and make sure to keep your hands free. If you need to carry towels and things like that do so with a back pack. It will make the climb easier.
  • Rip-off!!! If you live in America or Europe you can see way better waterfalls for free. They ask for 300 per person (and even 100 for Thai OMG), and the highest "fall" is less than 2m. Don't drive the 60km! There are better things to do near.
