I heard it was dry season but it was still beautiful. We only hiked up to the 4th level but those 4 were very pretty and well worth it. We didn't bring clothes to swim but I definitely would next time!

A touch and go of magnificent waterfalls in Erawan National Park, near Kanchanaburi. First local bus departs at 8am and after 2hrs you reach Erawan. Entry fee 300thb/person. Park closes at 4:30pm, so be sure to finish sightseeing by this time as rangers will start closing the trail from the top (7th tier) around 3pm. The 6th tier you reach... More

there was no waterfall and it was the rainy season but it didnt rain much. you still had to go because the bus took you there to see the non exsistant waterfall so you would spend some money at the market . I think that was a bit of a con . watch out for cons there are plenty round.

We decided to include this in our itinerary although I am not keen on hiking with a toddler. However, I was blown away by the beautiful waterfalls. All that walking while carrying a toddler was worth the effort! Enjoy the scenery and environment, simply breathtaking.

7 Waterfalls in total, and as you advance up higher, the location and there positioning is wow. Weather was ideal due to the climbing involved, however the waterfalls were not at their peak and couple we not even functioning. Take your time as the complete climb is some places is difficult, and in the rainy season several trails also maybe... More

It's very hard to walk up when you are not over 30 yrs old. No proper trail all you can do is climb up on the rock which super slippery.

Ice-cold and crystal-clear water from the waterfall, adult visitors can let their hair down and be children again, playing in the pools and puddles, just having fun. Great local food is available at nearby stalls.

Always the trick with waterfalls is coming during rainy season. I live in this region so I have explored many of the different waterfalls like Erawan, Hua Mai Kamin, Sai Yok Yai, Sai Yok noi and Palad(Really off the beaten path). This one is nice almost like Sai Yok yai but can get a bit crowded with locals. That can... More
