  • What a wonderful place. This park is full of life & vibrancy. We were lucky because it's been raining recently so the waterfall was very powerful & magnificent. Definitely worth the drive.

  • It is one kilometer from the parking to the Haew Rarok Waterfalls. It took us one half hour for one way hike. The Waterfalls are tall and beautiful. We took many pictures.

  • The walk is only 1km but the final descent is 200 very steep steps. Wear good walking shoes. It is lovely.

  • It's a long walk to the center of the waterfall but you won't regret it. By the way you should be careful on the way back because you're going to climb up hundreds of stair steps so prepare your stamina before viaiting here
  • Do not waste time walking there on April. This place take around 30 minute of walking and more 100 stairs to reach the destination and you will see nothing on summer season (Feb-Apr) However, it’s very beautiful on rainy season (around Jul-Oct)
  • The haew Narok waterfall is a transliteration of the valley of hell waterfall, and that name is tragically too apt, as about three years ago, over twenty elephants perished, (jumping down the ravine), in an effort to save one calf that had fallen. As a tourist attraction, it's the leading one in Khao Yai. It's free, there's a pleasant path of, I guess, 500m, ending in about four rather steep sets of steps which lead down to an observation area. It's fairly impressive, about a 90m drop, I think, and is of course best viewed in the rainy season, albeit it falls all year...
  • Good and easy access through a concrete path in the forest. Challenging is only the last part with 200 stairs downwards. Problem: no water in March (end of dry season).
  • The waterfall is not wheelchair accessible since you need to go up and down a lot of stairs. However, we were able navigate the few steps downhill at the beginning and enjoy a walk through the jungle until you reach the river.
