Experience Chiang Mai

For lovers of waterfalls

There are plenty of beautiful waterfalls in and around Chiang Mai to discover, as the area is very mountainous and receives heavy rain in the wet season. A number of waterfalls are located close to Chiang Mai and can easily be reached with a scooter or Tuktuk, but there are also some fantastic ones located further north towards Pai or Chiang Rai as well as south around Thailands highest peak Doi Inthanon and under many of these tropical waterfalls you can take a swim.
Love the beauty and magic of waterfalls? Here are some recommendations.

Monthathan Waterfall

Several hours activity

The Monthathan Waterfall can be found approx. 16 km west of Chiang Mai and about 3 km past Huay Kaew waterfall and is part of the Doi Suthep - Doi Pui National Park. It can be reached on a good road and from the park office it is a pleasant and short walk through nature to this nine-tiered waterfall floweing over a cliff - keep in mind, that during the dry season the water running down this waterfall might be very low to none. Being so close to the city this waterfall attracts many tourists and travellers who come here to relax, so do not expect to be there all by yourself.

Huay Kaew Waterfall | Chiang Mai Trekking | The best trekking in Chiang Mai with Piroon Nantaya

Huay Kaew Waterfall

Several hours activity

Huay Kaew is located just after the Chiang Mai Zoo, making it the easiest and quickest accessible waterfall from downtown Chiang Mai - although the falls here are not as high and majestic as, say Mae Ya, shade trees over the path and the waterfall itself do make it a relaxing spot to enjoy a picnic or a little splashing. Just remember that Huay Kaew is actually a wet-weather fall meaning that flow can be extremely low to completely dry during dry season and - being that close to the city, it is likely that there will be quite some people there.

Sri Lanna National Park | Chiang Mai Trekking | The best trekking in Chiang Mai with Piroon Nantaya

Sri Lanna National Park

Full day tour

The Sri Lanna National Park about 1 hour north of Chiang Mai has it all: jungle waterfalls, dam, reservoir, trekking, wildlife, and much more. You can choose from an abundance of activities that will occupy every adventurous traveller like visiing the 9-tier waterfall Mon Hin Lai in the Mae Ngat forest (N/E of the reservoir close to the Mae Phaeng lake, near the 1001 heading north) or if you are up for it, the Mae Ngat Sombun Chon Dam is also famous for white-water rafting. There are quite a few other waterfalls to be found and caves to explore or trails to wander. You can do kayaking on the tranquil waters, ride a mountain bike through the rugged terrain or arrange fishing trips and boat tours and if you get hungry there are restaurants and similar facilities inside the park as well.

Mae Sa Waterfall | Chiang Mai Trekking | The best trekking in Chiang Mai with Piroon Nantaya

Mae Sa Waterfall

Several hours activity

The Mae Sa waterfall is located approximately 25 km north of Chiang Mai and is relatively easy to find. This multi-level waterfall consists of 10 levels that you carefully also can try to climb or you use the narrow path next to the waterfall, which leads the approximately 1.2 km length of all levels up the mountain - on warm days a bit sweaty. This waterfall is a popular weekend spot, so try to be here in the morning or during the week to avoid the biggest crowds. Mae Sa is also great as part of a full day tour to Mon Cham.

Buatong Waterfall | Chiang Mai Trekking | The best trekking in Chiang Mai with Piroon Nantaya

Buatong Waterfall

Several hours activity

The Buatong Waterfall is located about 60 km north of Chiang Mai near the Sri Lanna National Park and is much better known by the nickname "Sticky Waterfall": it is completely covered with limestone and other minerals and this coating is very non-slip which makes it pretty easy to climb the waterfall (in particularly steep places with the help of ropes). You can climb five different levels and feel a bit like Spiderman. There are also ordinary steps on the side for all those who do not want to get wet.

Nachdem ich die sehr guten Bewertungen gelesen habe,buchten wir auch einen 3-Tagestrip.
