Touring Thailand

 

Mae Sa Falls

Mae Sa Valleys first attraction on the 1096 west is the Mae Sa Falls. Also known as the Mae Sa Waterfalls. The waterfalls are fairly small but attractive enough. There are several (about 4 or 5) that start near the car/bike park and run up the hillside.

It's quite a hike to the rest of the waterfalls, but there are steps and wooden platforms that will assist the climb. The pathway is on the left-hand side of the waterfalls and it tends to be in the shade from late morning onwards so the heat isn't too oppressive.
The Thais are good, hard workers in the outdoors environment and the Mae Sa Falls rangers are no exception. Riders got a great shot of one of the thai rangers cutting back some foiliage and a cheery wave after he'd taken it!
Good candid camera moment!

This next set of waterfalls are some of the most impressive around the Mae Sa Valley.

If there is one thing that spoils Mae Sa Falls it is that there is a dual pricing policy at the entrance (see picture below). The Thai price should be 20 baht, however they will likely try to hit you for upwards of 50 baht. Ensure you have a thai drivers licence to avoid paying any extra.

For this section, thats all for now. If you want to explore the sights and surroundings of the Mae Sa Valley further just click on the highlighted text or the maps and menus.
