If you love adventure, going to Thi lor su waterfall is the best choice. Not only because the waterfall itself is beautiful, but how to go there is a real fun. The best time to visit Thi lor su is November to February. My friends...More

Questions & Answers

I visited a couple of times in my truck It is one of the most stunning sights in Thailand. When I visited about 3 years ago you could drive your 4x4 to the campsite and then its a short 1km walk to the waterfalls. Unfortunately there is now a restrictive transport regime in operation - a group of 4x4 Song Teaw onwners have got a monopoly on the last 25 km or so to the campsite and they are refusing to admit private vehicles even if they are capable of the trip to the waterfall. Tis means people like myself who come fully equipped for camping are required to pay 2500 baht or so to have our equipment transferred to one of their vehicles and taken to the campsite.....and then wait for them to take you back down again. If you book an all-in package trip, this won't affect you - but I cancelled a convoy of 23 Thai pickups due to this. Most people stay in Umphang for a night before going on to the waterfalls and maybe a few nights after - there's a a lot in therein to see. the whole area is very isolated and only accessible by one road (pf a thousand bends) from Me Sot. This means it's a lot further from BKK than it looks - the detour to Mae Sot can put 450 kms/w on the trip.

I'm afraid the whole thing with the "local" Song Teaws has left a very nasty taste in my mouth. If you want more information contact the office of the Governor of Tak - it's his idea.
