  • We drove (by own car) from Tak via Mae Sot to the waterfalls. As described by others the route from Tak to Mae Sot is a dangerous one but under construction so expect within 2-3 years a complete 2x2 l...  more »
  • To get to this waterfall is QUITE the journey. If you don't have about 3 days to kill then I wouldn't do it. I drove my little 110 scooter from Mae Sot (boring/dirty border town) on "death highway". T...  more »
  • To go to the Thi Lo Su you first have to get to Mae Sot. Let me explain. It's as if a tourist who wants to visit, to say: the Cinque Terre, have to switch from Reggio Emilia even if, at that time, is located in Genova or La Spezia. Thi Lo Su waterfall are part of Umphang Wildlife Sanctuary is a protected area, bounded on the East by the border with Burma (or Myanmar) and to the South, through other protected areas and national parks, joins the Kanchanaburi province, forming the larger forest complex of South East Asia and place the latest sighting of tigers in Thailand. The town of Umphang you can reach, using a road worthy of the name, just to the North, specifically from Mae Sot. The distance of only 160 km must not mislead, the first 50 km are relatively normal but the remaining 110 km, apart from the narrow roadway, engage the driver in over 1,200 curves. If the destination are just Thi Lo Su waterfall (Nam Tok น้ำตก ที ซู อ ล – Thi Lo Su, also transliterated as Thee Lor Sue, The Lor Sue, Thee Lor Sue), note that the only visit of the falls requires at least one overnight stay on site (maybe better to avoid 2 too). You can stay at Umphang or in camping near the falls which is 45 km from Umphang to which it is connected by a paved road only for the first 25 km ... better to have an all-terrain vehicle. However, if you have time and desire to do a more or less long excursion opportunities (and offers) to have fun there.
