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 !! -
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.
***Warning*** beware of swarms of wasps and bees and high entry fees (300 baht pp) in the park. Wasps everywhere - on the trail, near the fish, in the toilet, near the falls, around your car, around you, on the ropes that you need to grab to go down slopes, etc. Gave 1 star because 300 baht pp is a rip off for such experience. 👎
