Pam Bok Waterfall, Pai

3.4
#2 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.

  • It is a really dismal waterfall with hardly any water pouring down with force or volume Also the place was quite crowded with a lot of tourists and very commercial The Road leading upto the waterfall ...  more »
  • The waterfall is very close to the Land Split which is also worth a visit. The waterfall itself is pretty small but it’s a short walk from where you can park and is refreshing to paddle in or even swi...  more »
  • I think I've been good to go swimming without thinking the stars of people being able to see the good. Unfortunately, I didn't get the swimsuit, swim in a swimsuit to put things when it comes to would have liked. And most Westerners but pecking

  • Beautiful place to go. Fun road off the main road towards waterfall. Not too busy when we were there (September). Be careful when just entering in water as there are a lot of unseen rocks under the surface but gets very deep just beside the waterfall. One of my favourite parts of visiting Pai.
  • Loved this spot so much we can back at 8am on our last day for an early dip. Take swimwear to fully experience this spot, or at least be prepared to walk in knee/thigh high water to see the actual waterfall as you can't from the end of the footpath.
  • A bumpy ride off the main road to the parking area, then a short walk, across a new bridge, to the river. Waterfall not easily seen unless you wade in the river ( or boulder hop but slippery!) indeed as waterfall but I thought disappointing. The journey there through the rural homes was more exciting than the destination.
  • very accessible and free waterfall. you dont have to take a long walk or trek hard. nevertheless, be very careful mear the waterfall as those stones are a bit slippery. it is a sweet, cold waterfall. it happened that we came here after hot springs so we found it hard to take a dip there... because it was freeeeezing 😎.
  • Small waterfall with a nice chilly water to swim, 5 min from the parking and ots free

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.
