About the 1 Day Trek Waterfalls Trail in Doi Inthanon Area Tour (WALKING ONLY)

This tour is perfectly designed to allow you to experience all of the best activities in Northern Thailand, including visits to the most beautiful waterfalls in Chiang Mai, in a single day.

After an early morning ride into the countryside, your trekking tour begins. Your English-speaking Karen guide will lead you on a 2-hour trek through the jungle, across a river, and to a waterfall. You will also visit beautiful rice terraces (available from the beginning of June until the middle of November) where you can relax and enjoy the view of young green rice growing in Thailand’s iconic step-like rice paddies.

Come upon another gorgeous waterfall and breathe in the refreshing mist from the falls. For a truly unique experience, cool off with a refreshing swim in the natural plunge pool at the bottom of the waterfall!
