The waterfall has 11 levels, each of which contains a natural pool of clear water at least 4 or 5 metres wide. Wahng Tehwada, Wahng Sok, and Wahng Jahn are the main ones.



Hot Waterfall

In the jungle, near an amazing emerald lake, a hot spring water is waiting for you.

The Hot Spring and Hot Waterfall of Klong Thom are wonderful and perfect for soaking in after a long day tour. The minerals and the temperature (37 - 39 C.) of the springs are ideal, for Hydrotherapy Bath. A walk in the wild jungle gives you the opportunity to observe the natural wildlife.

If lucky you will see the rare Pitta Gurney birds through to be extinct until discovered in this small jungle only 15 years ago. This walk leads you to the crystal pool.
