Pam Bok Waterfall, Pai

3.3
#3 of 9 in Parks in Pai
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.

  • Summer season is not good for Pam Bok Waterfall. It’s almost dry. If you want to go to Bamboo bridges, it will be on the way. So you can have a look. Otherwise only for this to go there will make you hurt. Be careful during motorbike driving. You will get a lot of cracks on the way.
  • The waterfall is more of a trickle around February, so the water doesn't look very fresh. However I did still decide to go for a dip and I don't regret it. The water feels icy cold as it's down a crevice. It also gets pretty deep in parts. Worth a visit if you're on your way past. I thought the road up was a little difficult. I was surprised to see people taking scooters.
  • It's nice but I didn't feel like swimming in it. Partly because it was a late afternoon and a bit cold to scooter back wet. But if you arrive early the water may be nice
  • Not the most impressive waterfall I have seen but easily accessible. There is a pool you can swim at though the water is very cold! If you drive a little bit further up you will get to the Bamboo Bridge, not to miss. And on the way back don’t forget to stop by at the Land Split.
  • Very small and stagnant this time of year (end of February) due to dry season. The water is probably not suitable to swim in at this time since it isn’t moving much. We were the only people here in the morning which was nice and quiet. It is not a far hike at all, and seems like it would be quite nice during a wetter time of year. Still beautiful to see, but don’t expect to swim or cliff jump in February.
