Pang Sida - Thap Thewa Waterfall

20 Sep 2010 22:41 - 17 May 2013 13:26 #201 by
To reach this trail you need to exit the park and head east on the 3485, turn left to the Tha Krabak Reservoir, pass the from of the reservoir and then turn left after another 1 kilometer on a laterite road leading to Chong Klam Reservoir. The trail starts at the reservoir.

Its a decent waterfall but the upper section is an impressive sandstone plateau that is nice to relax in and admire the forest around. The walk in is a constant slow rise but easy enough, on the return it is all downhill except for the initial climb out of the waterfall's valley.

PLEASE NOTE: Pang Sida now has a policy (2010) that you must take a ranger with you to walk any of their trails. They can be arranged for at the Park's Visitor's Centre.

Difficulty level :: easy (scale : easy, moderate, hard, ouch)
Terrain :: Initially through secondary forest leading to primary, a forest trail through mixed evergreen & mixed decid' forest
