Pa La-U Waterfall, Kaeng Krachan
(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.

  • Beautiful setting. Lots of lovely bright coloured butterflies to be seen at the lower falls. Quite unforgiving terrain in places, make sure you wear decent and sturdy shoes. This does involve quite a ...  more »
  • Waterfall chic, but the path is not easy. With the children in the stroller, no backpacks kangaroos and ERGO until 2-3 level with a good physical training walk you can.

  • I walked up to stage 4 out of 15 I am not the fittest person in the world after stage 4 I was out of breath I wish I was a lot fitter to get to the top tip wear trainers and not sandals

  • 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.
  • A lot of butterflies in the early morning! Nice, somewhat difficult climbs up to the stages. Swimming and feeding lots of fish!
  • 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.
