See the rapid flow of Tad Somphamit Waterfalls, a cascade that according to local belief traps the evil spirits of both deceased people and animals. Rocky cliffs surround the waterfall, creating a dramatic natural scene. Walk along the edge of the cliffs to admire the rush of water and enjoy the views, keeping an eye out for water wheels used for generating power as you go. After your stroll, rest at a bungalow, grab a bite at a restaurant, or enjoy something lighter from one of the snack stands.

  • The waterfalls totally divides opinion, including my own. I've never really liked tourist traps like waterfalls, however I must admit that even after some fairly brutal remarks on other reviews sites, I was very impressed. People were stating that it's a massive waste of money but the place is very beautiful, you also have the opportunity to go on a zip-wire across to the other waterfall which I didn't see. Worth a day out. Doesn't cost much, around $4 I seem to remember.
  • Awesome. Takes some effort to get here as u need to get on the boat 20 minutes, then the 5-row shuttle bus 20 minutes.
