Pala-u Waterfall - Review
The Pala-U Waterfall is located around 60 kilometres west of Hua Hin. Situated within the Kaeng Krachan National Park, it is close to the Myanmar border. The journey to the falls itself is beautiful, you pass through a stunning countryside and occasionally, you get to see wild elephants coming out of the jungle. The waterfall has 16 steps to it making it one of Thailand’s longest waterfalls. Its 3rd step is where many locals and tourists flock to since it has a large natural pool. The atmosphere at the waterfall is very refreshing. You have to visit it while on your Hua Hin trip.

Pala-u Waterfall, Hua Hin Reviews
We made our own way there , it's well signposted from about 50km away. It's well worth a visit ,as soon as you enter you are greeted by 100s of butterflies . as everyone else has said wear decent shoes! - flip flops are not ideal, apart from being slippy there are peckish ants all I we the place! The falls are on 5 levels ,it it gets progressively harder to get up but if your half fit you should be able to do it , we managed with a 3 year old to get to level 5 ( although he is very active) . The hardest part in my opinion in was between level 2 and 3 where it's quite rocky but get past that you ha e a good chance to get all the way to 5 !! -
Waterfall was not fully open for tourists due to high water levels. Better to call before traveling to check if all levels of the waterfall are open. Price for tourists 300 baht for adults, 200 baht for kids, 30 baht parking fee.
Unfortunately the first bridge had collapsed days before our arrival, so we were not able to access the trail along the waterfall. The staff was kind enough to let us in anyway, because we came from far and we expressed our interest in the surroundings. We witnessed workers rebuild the bridge...
It was 17 Aug 2018. A beautiful rainy day. We live in Bangkok. We received our family friend Litton, Sima and kids. We have a 7 seater car. Friday afternoon we set out for Hua Hin. We reached a 6'O clock. We had dinner at sea side Itsara sea food restaurant. We had nice massage at night. Next day 18 Aug we started for the Pa La-U waterfalls. It was about 55 km from Hua Hin. It was a rainy day as well. But in rain the greenery flourish at hills and forest. On the way we have seen expetacular view. We were 4 adult and 4 children. We were ready to pay. But the forest rangers said it was waived for that day cause we cannot basically climb the falls because of the inclement weather. We did not mind and moved on. After we reached it started raining heavily. It was so beautiful! The waterfall was at its best. So much water it was discharging! It as was so amazing. We saw butterflies, grasshopper, birds, frogs and fishes. Unfortunately we could not see wild elephant. We took lots of photos. We took video. When we were about to come back it was raining so heavily that we took shelter in a hut. It was not even possible to reach up to our car. Finally a forest guard came there and lent his rain coat. I took the coat and reached the car. Finally brought the car for all to get in. It was indeed a memorable day! Istiaque, Farzana, Ilmaa, Fareefta.
Very nice attraction, but you have to wear good shoes, take many water for drinking. Because hot.
