Na Mueang-1 Waterfall, Na Mueang

Waterfall · Nature / Park
Two cascades close together bear the name Na Mueang-1 Waterfall--or Purple Falls--so-called because of the colored sheen of the rocks. As you approach the falls, local guides will attempt to charge you for everything from elephant rides to monkey shows, but access costs nothing if you go on foot. There are several steep and slippery sections on the short trek there, however, be cautious. If you have any mobility issues, hire a ride in an all-terrain vehicle. At the falls, you can swim in the plunge pool if you don't mind the murky water. To visit Na Mueang-1 Waterfall and other attractions in Na Mueang, use our Na Mueang planner.

  • Very beautiful, a fresh cool swim is advisable. Loved it! Don't do the elephant trekking though please - for their own health, it's better to view them in their natural habitat.
  • There's nothing much here. You barely walk for 100m and reach the falls from the parking lot. There's some vendors selling food, drinks and souvenirs along the way. The falls themselves are very overhyped. It's pretty crowded and minus the hike involved, it becomes a pretty shabby place overall to spend your time & money on. There's a small steam dripping down a big bald rock face. That's about it.
