Pala-u Waterfall, Hua Hin Reviews
We only got as far as level 2. Being in our sixties we felt it unsafe to go any further, as it seemed to get more difficult as we looked up the falls. Big rocks, ropes to haul yourself up and over, no thanks. I would sincerely recommend sturdy walking boots to attempt this. But who brings their walking boots on a holiday to a tropical country, unless that is their intention.
The place is very beautiful. The water is clear and there's also lots of fish swimming around and you can feed them too. The waterfall is organized into floors depending on the distance and height. It's still ok to climb to floor 1 and 2 but from floor 3 onwards the path is quite difficult because you're entering into the forest and you might need to climb and injuries are possible. Still worth a visit though!
Pala-U Waterfall will be a great surprise. Enjoy the genuine beauty of both the sea and the forest here in Hua Hin. Distance from Hua Hin: about 63km. Entry price per person: 400 -600 baht.
I was lucky enough to come here when nobody was here. So i could swim in waterfall #5. Wonderful) And fish in the water is scareless, can feed from hands)
Pala-U Waterfall is a picturesque site, in thick jungle surrounds, approximately 65 kilometers due west of Hua Hin. It is a place which predominantly only locals go to for a picnic or a day’s outing and is well worth the effort of visiting. As mentioned it is in mountainous, jungle clad surroundings and only a few kilometers from the Thai/Burmese border. There is a 200 THB entry fee to pay at a checkpoint before entering the park area. The waterfall is actually a number of small falls, or steps, in a stream which descends from the mountains beyond. There is a developed trail which follows the stream to the fifth level. After that the trail is mostly non-existent. Lots of fish can be seen in many of the pools. A word of WARNING: at the beginning of the trail there is a foot bridge which crosses the stream. In the late afternoon a group of primates often gathers around this area, perhaps waiting for handouts from tourists. Be very careful as these are not monkeys, they are APES (smaller chimpanzees) and they can become hostile, or dangerous, if provoked.
