“Six Kilometer of Poor Road Surfaces”
Review of Pong Dueat Geyser

Pong Dueat Geyser
Ranked #11 of 26 things to do in Mae Taeng
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 June 2017 via mobile

Beside the heading of poor road at the entrance to the attraction, the geyser was an exciting phenomenon for the area. Our visit was in the low season and we had the whole site to ourselves. From the car park, we walked for about 350 m on proper walkway and trail to the geyser. The walk was relatively easy on even elevation however some area did have moss gathering and could be slippery. We were amazed with the size of the geysers and its activities. The whole trip was well worth it if you are driving from Chiangmai to Pai or vice versa.

300 thb for a foreigner so you better hang out at hot spring pools at least 3 hours. After drive 6 km on poor road Its really nice natural place to relax in peaceful green area with trees, small hot waterfall and mountains surrounding. Need to improve: Toilets quite far and not many, no changing rooms. Anyhow we were enjoy spent time there.

The hot spring is pretty impressive - bubbling, boiling water - and the walk through the woods to reach it is pleasant. There is also a walking trail of 9 km although we only walked a little bit of this. The mineral baths comprise of several hot pools including one like a swimming pool and some others which are smaller and more secluded. There are rooms to stay overnight but we just stopped for a couple of hours on the way from Chiang Mai to Pai. There is a publicized foreigner entrance fee of a pricey 300 baht but I wasn't asked to pay this. This fee is good for Huey Nam Dang and Pai hot springs too. The road into the park is pretty rough, but it wouldn't stop me going again.

We visit Pong Duet mainly to see the geyser. The road to Pong Duet is a rough road in bad state. The price is very expensive 400 baths for foreigners and they refuse to give discount for our children. From the parking lot there is a nice 500 Meter walk to the geyser. This was the best part (we see lot of great butterflies) since the geyser itself is low and rather disappointing. Low value for price!.

not many people go here. mostly thais. go on weekday is much cheaper. If you take a thai person maybe a discount. nice cabins for rent. all sizes. there are more springs below the swimming pool spa. and you can go sit in the river..... really hot. don't stay more than 10 minutes. one of our group nearly fainted after staying 20 minutes then getting out and walking around. setting is fantastic.
