Pam Bok Waterfall, Pai

3.2
#3 of 6 in Nature in Pai
Waterfall Nature / Park
Shelter yourself in the shade and cool waters of Pam Bok Waterfall. A small dirt path takes you up to a tiny cove where you can jump into the pool from some elevated rocks. The waters can get quite chilly because of the shade, but are perfectly fine for a brisk swim regardless. You'll find it easy enough to get here: from the main road a clear sign will direct you to a parking lot, and from there follow the short path. Popular among locals and tourists alike, the spot can get a little crowded. A visit to Pam Bok Waterfall represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Pai vacation generator to plot your vacation.

Where to stay in Pai

With tourism now the number-one industry in the area, you shouldn't have any trouble finding accommodations in Pai. In fact, on a walk through the village center you'll be hard-pressed to find a street that doesn't have several hotels or guesthouses. The village's popularity among backpackers means you can choose from a range of hostels and budget guesthouses. Luxury accommodations are more limited, although with a host of excellent mid-range options you can stay in comfort without spending big bucks. When Pai is at its busiest, between November and March, try something on the fringes of the village for a quieter, more peaceful holiday.

  • I personally spent a bit longer in Pai as I loved the place, however on the whole, I didn't feel as though the waterfalls were anything special compared to elsewhere in Thailand. This was the best one...  more »
  • Unremarkable waterfall with a natural pool that's good for cooling off on a hot day. Plenty of much more spectacular waterfalls about. What is remarkable however, is if you continue along the same roa...  more »
  • Went to Pam Bok with a few friends mid-day on motorbike and arrived to about 15 other people already there. It's a short walk through some pretty steep rocks from the parking area to the actual falls ...  more »

  • Very easy to access, different basins of water, the one directly attached to the waterfall the deepest. Small caves around. Muddy, but clean enough.
  • Only a 5 min walk from the car park. Beautiful falls, and nice place to swim. Can also jump off the rocks (only about 1-2m)
  • Had a nice swim. The pool is enclosed with rock faces giving it a primeval feel.
  • Nice waterfalls usually packed in the high season. Choose the hour you visiting wise.
  • Okay waterfall, not too far on scooters from the main road. Just sad that people leave/throw plastic bottles in the river. How hard is it to take your rubbish with you? Where do think it's going to go?
