At about an hour and a half from Hua Hin is Pala-U, a beautiful waterfall with 16 levels. Pala-U is located in Kaeng Krachan national park, Thailand’s largest nature preserve that extends all the way West into Burma. The park is home to unspoiled rainforest with enormous trees and many species of birds and mammals.
On the way there driving through the Thai countryside with farms and pineapple fields you will have great views of the mountains in the background towards Burma.
After passing the national park checkpoint, you will step into the tropical jungle with beautiful scenery, huge boulders, countless colorful butterflies, tropical birds and monkeys.
To get to the higher up tiers of the waterfall take a beautiful hike along the stream stepping over rocks and roots of large trees while enjoying the serene atmosphere of a forest in excellent condition full of the sounds of birds and insects.
Near the park entrance are a fairly basic restaurant and a picnic area.
