Must see · Waterfall · Nature / Park
Surrounded by lush tropical jungle, Kuang Si Waterfall feature a series of travertine cascades and turquoise pools. The three-tiered waterfall--the largest in the area--spills from the shallow pools on the top of a sheer hillside and then drops 60 m (200 ft) into a cluster of natural pools. Put on some sturdy shoes and climb the slippery trails on the side of the cascades to get to the top. Amenities include well-kept pathways and bridges, picnic tables, and wooden huts near the entrance where you can change into a swimsuit. The scenic journey to the waterfall, leading across paddy fields and past farming villages, is an attraction in its own right.

  • Absolutely beautiful falls. I recommended also hiking up to the top of the falls, away from all the tourists. A few nice places to swim. Best to get their earlier, however the water will be colder. Beautiful, clean and well maintained park.
  • Great views of the waterfall and the pools where you can dip in. There is also a hike up. Make sure that you enter via the left side especially in the wet season, it is worth to see few viewpoints along the way. There is also a bear sanctuary which is great to visit and see the little cute moon bears.
