  • Friends went to the Emerald pool or hot water falls in a neighbouring region and told us it was black tourists... we tried an alternative to live a moment in nature and we were served! During 2 h walk we didn't see... anyone! a wonderful walk in a forest type jungle with vines, huge trees, animal noises. All uphill, better is worth love the market and wear good sneakers. In the end upon arrival a natural pool with waterfalls. Lost in the middle of this nature it was magical. Apart from lizards and spiders we have not seen other animals, but heard the monkeys and birds. The water is not hot but it's nice after a walk in a tropical heat, provide bathing suit and linen. And water for the market!

  • We're going to the Khao Phanom with my partner. We've been first through the view point at 750 m from the start. (Wonderful view upon arrival but I do recommend not if you aren't prepared or shaped.) About the waterfalls there are three places to swim, including an exclusive if you take the viewpoint! Two below. ! DO NOT STEP ON THE ELEPHANTS! They fought for the pleasure of tourists. Thank you for your understanding.

  • Hidden gem. Waterfall is average but the walks and wildlife so amazing, monkeys, flying lizards and the biggest tree i ever saw..34m circumference!
  • There is a very beautiful and private waterfall Huay tho (Huai to), having three levels one after another. There is also another tiny waterfall on the left trail. Hikers would love the nature trail, but not without water and hiking shoes.
  • My friend Ivy took me to this beautiful park.
  • Entry fee 100 baht. Parking 20 baht. 2 waterfalls that too very small. The park is not at all maintained. It seems like an unkempt jungle with boundaries. There are no proper directions or sign boards for nature trail and view point.
  • National park .. nice place to go and there is waterfall also..
