Khao Soi Dao Waterfall

Located in the Khao Soi Dao Sanctuary, the Soi Dao waterfall is a local tourist attraction and popular with Bangkok Trekkers as its not too far from BKK and close to a border crossing with Cambodia.

Its a very tough and slippy climb in the wet but well worth the hike with great views from the top. Water flows all year round.

The GPS file for you to download is at the bottom of this post.

Important facts

Length of trail :: 5 km (round trip)
Hiking time :: 2 to 4 hours (includes return: 2 hours if level 9 only)
Difficulty level :: moderate (scale : easy, moderate, hard, ouch)
Terrain :: Heavy mixed evergreen forest, with steep climb between levels 9 and 16
Minimum essentials :: 1L water, snack

The trip to level 9 is fairly easy physically but can be very slippery in parts - the forest is very humid 10 month of the year. At level 9 you can relax by the main chan of the fall. From level 9 to 16 is very steep but worthwhile. You can return via a different route if you climb just beyond level 10 (the return path is shown on the GPS track).
