Pha Nam Yot Waterfall

There is a small parking and entrance fee. Car Park - N 12 42 44, E 99 38 49.

The trail is best walked in the wet season when the stream is running. On the walk you will cross the stream a few times. We suggest you borrow some rubber boots from the lodge. These will help with both comfort and safety on the wet rocks.

We also suggest you take a packed lunch and some swimwear.

A guide with car can be arranged for 1,600 Baht for a half day.
