Tat Namsanam

Waterfall in Ban Khoun Kham

The main local attraction is the impressive twin-cataract of Tat Namsanam, 3km north of town, although in the dry season, it's, well, dry. The falls are in a striking location surrounded by karst and the upper tier is quite high.

Unfortunately, the path and signs leading to the falls aren't entirely clear, and more than one foreign visitor has got lost here. Proceed with caution, or better yet, hire a guide through the excellent Tourist Information Centre, just south of the Tat Namsanam entrance, which runs community-based treks from here into the Phu Hin Bun NPA.
