Huai Nam Yen - Pang Sida

A very delightful and easy trail - the Huai Nam Yen waterfall trail is accessed from the Huai Nam Yen Ranger station and camp site which is located at km 20 on the Pang Sida Park road (3642) inside the Pang Sida National Park, Sakeo. The trail is not a long one but is the epitome of a forest/jungle trail and is one of the nicest I know of.

It is very easy to follow and crosses two small streams and a waterfall (Huai Nam Yen) - most of its length it runs by the side of a mountain stream that is a delight with the sun light dappled by the trees but sparkling off the water. As the stream runs virtually all year the trail is home to many species of climbers, mosses and plants as well as being home to many small mammals and birds.

 Its a great trail to set out on if you are not used to the forest and you can enjoy the surroundings without some of the inherent dangers of the longer trails. The trail can be walked all year round but is at its verdant best during the rainy season.
