Our first stop is Sirithan Waterfall. This stunning 50 meter cascade, fed by the Mae Klan River from Doi Inthanon’s peak, is perfectly hidden deep in the pine forest. After viewing this landscape from a scenic terrace, we will continue our hike to Wachirathan Waterfall.One of the largest and the most beautiful of waterfalls in Thailand, the Wachirathan Waterfall will blow you away. Over 80 meters high, the power of this waterfall creates a refreshing mist that feeds the surrounding vegetation – giving you the most invigorating facial of your life!
