Pam Bok Waterfall, Pai
(3.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Upon arrival it looks like nothing special, but if you have some stroomopwaards runs, you see how overwhelming this waterfall is. The water and try to swim up to it!

  • This waterfall is just okay. Lots of tourists, fun to get out and see but we only spent about 10 min there. What makes this place so special though is that it forces you to take an AMAZING drive on yo...  more »
  • Small works before the fall, but after it's quite difficult to access given that there is generally of the world and with the ratchet, for children is not the top. After considering the heat that he did it can be really good on there went because water is very refreshing.

  • Very idyllic waterfall. Small swimming area but the water is **just** deep enough to jump into safely (your feet will probably feel the bottom when you land). The climb up when you jump in is a bit precarious, I recommend the path that's on the waterfall side of where people jump. There is quite a dodgy bridge on the way in, make sure to wear shoes when crossing it as there are some exposed nails. The handrail is also unreliable and some planks are rotten, but if you're careful you'll be fine. It was very fun swimming with the local kids as they clearly go their on their volition and weren't begging for money, just having fun :) Road there is a bit bumpy, make sure to bring a scooter or something as it would have been a very long walk otherwise.
  • Probably the nicest waterfall in the Pai area. The waterfall is not high, but is is surrounded on all sides by rock faces, making it feel almost as if you've stepped into another world.
  • Good for swimming. Really cool to look at. You can even jump off the cliffs but it's only like 2-3 meters. Recommend it!
  • This is an awesome place. Nice waterfall to swim at. Take a walk on the wild side and you may just discover a secret place😉
  • Nice place and worth a visit if you are in Pai. You need a car or a motorbike however to get there (or good stamina). Don't expect too much however, it's rather a small waterfall.
