Mae Sa Waterfall Tours

Mae Sa Waterfall
Located in Doi Suthep-Pui National Park, Mae Sa Waterfall consists of eight tiers that cascade over rocks in the midst of the jungle. A well-worn path leads from the lowest fall to the highest, and each tier is marked by a sign. Since the individual falls are not that high or fast-moving, they are ideal—and popular—for swimming.

The Basics
Mae Sa Waterfall attracts locals and tourists alike to its eight levels. While the base of the falls can get quite busy with visiting families, you’ll find very few people at the top. As one of the most popular scenic spots in Doi Suthep-Pui National Park, Mae Sa Waterfall often features on adventure tours through the park. Active travelers can join a tour that includes a stop at the waterfall in a day spent hiking and ziplining through the Chiang Mai jungles. These tours typically feature a visit to a local Karen hill tribe community as well.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Mae Sa Waterfall is a popular attraction for adventure travelers and outdoors enthusiasts.
  • Wear sturdy shoes and be prepared for a somewhat steep climb to the falls.
  • Don’t forget to bring along a swimsuit, towel, and a change of clothes.
  • Amenities at the falls include restrooms, picnic tables, and food vendors.
 
How to Get There
Mae Sa Waterfall is located about 16 miles (25 kilometers) outside Chiang Mai in Doi Suthep-Pui National Park, about a 30-minute drive from the old city. The best way to get there is to join an organized tour or take a taxi. 

When to Get There
Mae Sa Waterfall is at its most impressive following periods of heavy rain. It’s a popular weekend destination for locals, so visit the waterfall on a weekday if you prefer to avoid the crowds.

Waterfalls of Chiang Mai
The Chiang Mai area is dotted with beautiful waterfalls. If you’re looking for an alternative (or addition) to Mae Sa, head to Mae Ya Waterfall, the biggest in Doi Inthanon National Park, or the rather unique Sticky Waterfall, named for the limestone deposits that make it easy to climb over the rocks without slipping. Huay Kaew Waterfall, while small, is the most easily accessible from Chiang Mai.
Address: Km 7 on the Mae Rim, Samoeng Road, Chiang Mai, Thailand
