Pranburi Waterfall

Pranburi Waterfall was created by Paul T
The Mae Nam Pran Waterfall or Pranburi Waterfall has 3 medium size falls that are of note, and indicated in other online sources, but our recent unplanned explore of the area revealed there are actually at least 6 levels of the falls. The falls section of the "trail" rises 145 meters in elevation along its length of 700 meters but because the trail is non existent these days in many parts you are clambering up steep and slippery valley sides (up to 40 meters above the stream bed) or clambering over wet slippery stream rocks the whole length.

The upper reaches are definitely not for the faint of heart, we did this at the start of the dry season and it was treacherous (potentially dangerous) to say the least. In the wet the track (if it can be called that) is literally one way, you might climb up but getting down again is a risk of life and limb. As Rushen has advised in his post (see bottom of this post and his excellent website) - this is not for trying without a guide. One slip and it could be a broken leg or worse - and getting you (or me) out would be a major overnight logistical exercise.

I had long wanted to do this one - its a dark dank leech pit!. But it was an experience and the forest valley is beautiful in a strange dark way and the emergents are huge.

Level 1

Level 2

Level 3 (is actually level 4)
