Thi Lo Su Waterfall ,Tak Province ,Thailand



Address -: Thi Lo Su Waterfall ,Mae Klong River ,Tak Province ,Northwestern Thailand

Thi Lo Su Waterfall is located in the Umphang Wildlife Sanctuary, a UNESCO World Heritage site, which links with the Thung Yai Naresuan and Huay Kha Kaeng Reserves, as well as Khlong Lan and Mae Wong National Parks. All of them combined form the largest wildlife sanctuary in Thailand and one of Southeast Asia’s few virgin forests.  It is the most famous waterfall in Tak Province and is probably the Thailand’s biggest waterfall in terms of the cumulative amount of space containing falling water.

Thi Lo Su is a massive waterfall that spills water from a height of 250 meters. It is even taller than the Niagara Falls and is the largest waterfall in Thailand, and the sixth largest waterfall in the world, with a width of 450 meters. It is spectacular because of its many cascades, and its vast stretch of powerful waterfalls that only an aerial photo can capture all of it. It can be said that Thi Lo Su is one of the best places to visit in Thailand. 


There are three main waterfall landings or levels, so each ascent will be worth the effort. The first level has small pools of water for bathing with four falls over it, where you saw many people swimming, bathing, or just cooling off in general. Swimming is prohibited at the second level as the water is deeper, and the waterfall above is narrower and higher and might have also acted as barriers for most people in terms of trying to climb up or alongside the vegetated cliff face responsible for these waterfalls. The third level is overlooking the second level, and there are sedimentary rocks under the water to sit and walk on. Some tourists cross the span of the waterfall and back.


Best time for visiting tourists is during the months of December and January. At this time, the water level is still high to appreciate the falls, and the access road is open to the public. The water current is at its strongest between June to November, and the waterfall is at its most fascinating appearance.
