Catagorize: Waterfalls

Located to the south of a park, this beautiful triple-tiered waterfall cascades from a 200-meter cliff through forested mountains onto plains below. Its first tier is 60 meters high. The scene is breathtaking, particularly with strong currents plunging from the first tier to the lower tiers at a 90-degree angle before disappearing into the deep valley. The waterfall is truly spectacular - and equally dangerous - claiming at least one elephant death per year as wild elephant herds trundle through the waterfall.

The waterfall is accessible via Route No. 3077 (PrachinBuri-KhaoYai Route). Traveling by car from the city, drive along Suwannason Road, take a left turn to Highway Number 3077 at NoenHom intersection or Naresuan roundabout in PrachinBuri Province, and proceed to the Km. 24 marker. From Bangkok, take the Don Mueang-Hin Kong route and then turn left on to Highway No. 33, which leads to NoenHom Intersection. Alternatively, take Rangsit Road and drive towards NakhonNayok-NoenHom Intersection, then switch to Highway No. 3077 to NamtokHeoNarok. In addition, there are several bus companies operating on the Bangkok-PrachinBuri route. Buses depart from the Northern Bus Terminal on Kamphaengphet 2 Road. Disembark the bus at Naresuan Intersection and then hire a song taew (or open-air taxi) to KhaoYai National Park.

The waterfall is open to visitors from 8.00 am- 5.00 pm daily.
