Great on so many levels
Water flows evenly over seven distinct tiers of packed earth at Huay Mae Khamin waterfall, a remote gem 4 hours' drive northwest of Bangkok. Part of Khuean Srinagarindra National Park, the falls feature a trail network leading up to each terrace, offering visitors a close-up look at every level of the picturesque cascade.
Nature lovers and those looking for some peace favour it over the other heavily commercialised tourist spots in Thailand. The waterfall is fed by the mountain streams located high on the eastern side of the National Park. The surrounding cover of thick bamboo forests and banyan trees makes it a magical area quite unlike any other. The water descends 1.8 kilometres through seven distinct levels until it flows into River Kwai Yai.
