  • A succession of 7 levels of cascades 'designed' to be cool during a walk on foot about 3 hours in rough terrain, to discover preferably in the morning; important busy tourist site.

  • If you are in the area, that is fine, but it could be a long way to go for "not a lot". Pleasant walk to the waterfalls which are fairly small but look nice. There are 7 stages (levels) and people swi...  more »
  • From Bangkok by car or bus approximately three hours and a half, the half an hour access from Kanchanaburi. Mt. upstream along the River Kwai area Erawan falls mainly managed as a national park. Admission at the gate at the foot of (foreign rates are) required. In addition to providing the Erawan waterfall, as resorts, campsites, restaurants, shops, accommodation and are well-equipped. You can enjoy the waterfall also sells water toy at the Corinthia visits.

  • ohhh!!! This waterfalls is beautiful. It's not huge. but it has 7 levels and each level has their own charm. It's a good work our walking up to the top level too. Not too bad but take your time. don't be rush. The path is not easy to walk. The water is clear and cool. Lots of fishes. But no fishing allow guys. sorry.
  • Really its wonderful place.. I love it..... You can swimming and go up..... Its 1500m up. Don't forget to bring water or buy water cause when you go up you will not found any shop sell water.... So be ready for it... If you go up also its hard.... So be ready and i hope you enjoy your time there.... Dont throw any rubbish. (be careful for animals)
  • Beautiful waterfalls to swim in, full of fish that nibble at your feet. 7 layers of waterfalls that run down the mountain. Asked to leave at 5:30pm. Carts offer to drive you up to the waterfall steps or you can walk through the lovely forestry and see some plant and wildlife.
  • Stunning place, fairly challenging trek to the last couple of tiers but I'd advise flip flops or sandles as you end up walking through pools of water near the end and taking sturdy boots on and off several times would be a pain. Might be different in the dry season when the water is lower or more difficult in the rainy season - we went in November You won't be allowed past level 4 after 15:30 to ensure everyone is out before the park closes, and you have to pay a refundable 20 baht deposit for each plastic bottle you take in past level 3 to discourage littering - great idea we thought. Some have complained here about the higher price for foreigners - that's normal for Thailand, get used to it. And come on - 300 baht (plus 30 for the car) is about £6.50. We spent 5 hours in the park it's an absolute bargain! And some have complained about rude staff - I was with my Thai partner and we both found everyone unfailingly polite. Maybe we were lucky and went on a day when everyone was in a good mood, but if you treat people here with respect they will reciprocate. In summary, I can't recommend a visit here highly enough. It's a MUST do if you are visiting Thailand for more than just bumming on the beach and riding the occasional elephant!
  • Try to go during off-peak seasons to avoid the huge crowd. Waterfall water is very cool and relaxing, take the opportunity to soak in the water and let the fishes suck on your legs; it is totally harmless. Food in the waterfall area is not good, so be prepared if you have an empty stomach. Instead, go for the shops at the car park area. Trekking shoes are not necessary as many Thais just wear thongs and slippers up.
