It's not easy to refind the path at each place a tree obstruct the path, but you are realy in a tropical forest. Having GPS and an app with the map of the path is mandatory ( Open Street Map ). Next just enjoy nature....More

I came here as part of a tour provided by my hotel. We walked the trail then took a refreshing dip in the waterfall pool. It was very pretty and atmospheric with all the sounds of nature around us but of course it was hot,...More

The park access to Tonsai Waterfall costs 200bhat, which is well worth it. The actual area is so poorly signposted that most tourists go see the waterfall, and have no idea where the nature trail actually is. You have to really look for it. Those...More

Here is a waterfall worth a visit, it is only 3-400 meters from the parking lot and can be reached by a wheelchair. Beautifully, the water drops in the woods and take your time to stare up in the trunks, or down to earth, we...More

My first visit here was in 1997. Not much has changed. The waterfalls are still nice and the 200 baht farang entrance fee is still a ripoff. As others have noted, the park personnel are rude and on the Tonsai side the toilet didn't even...More
