Chai Rat Waterfall

Post by buksida » 14 Oct 2008 14:07

This is a great little spot about 30 minutes drive south of BS Noi. Take left turn off Petchkasem about a kilometer past the Khao Pho service station and follow the signs.

There is a restaurant built around two pools with slides, swings and interconnecting bridges, a waterfall feeds the pools which are well stocked with fish. Beer and food is bought down by a pulley system.

Sounds as if its worth a visit if we venture that way next year - thank you. Just one thing bothers me - why is the water such a funny colour. I see there are people in the water, but how safe is it?

I had a swim in there and it was fine, albeit a little cold, there are a few big carp in there too. Maybe something in the surrounding vegetation makes it that colour.

Chai Rat Pond and surounding area looks pretty cool; just one question, where's the waterfall?!!! :?

The waterfall is that little trickle in the background of the first pic ... I'm guessing its more impressive after the rains!

We were in Nakon Narok (NE of BKK) where the brother in law works as food and bev manager at a Thai resort (well I guess they are all Thai resorts).

The main attraction in the area, beside the remoteness, is the waterfalls. We toured them during the day, 1 was what I would call a proper waterfall, the rest simply a busy stream cascading down many rocks.

Some were free, and filled (not overly) with Thais floating on innertubes, and playing in the water.

A couple charged a fee, either buy food there or pay a small fee.

Thought it about time we went to investigate this scenic place!
After an hour of driving round a mountain (as we had missed the turn) we eventually found the place! Yes! Chai Rat Waterfall is easy to find if you speak & read Thai. For those of you who do not have a Thai partner the route is as follows;

From Bangsaphan (Yai) to Peckhasem Road.
Turn left onto Peckhasem Road (heading towards Chumphon) to major service area (roughly 30km), keep left.
About 1km from serivce area on left hand side, turn left onto Soi 5.
Follow bad road until you reach sign for coca cola (in Thai) or good food sold here. Turn left.
Follow until you reach Chai Rat Waterfall, a bit decieiving as you think you are going no where.

We did take some more photo's, but we don't want to spoil it all for you!!! We'll let you see for yourselves! :wink:

Dont risk going as they are liable to overcharge you. The menu does not have any prices on. See new topic re overcharging farangs at waterfall.

C'mon Fam, let's see 'em! :)

Did you noticed if there was more of a 'waterfall' at this waterfall this last time you visited? Not that it doesn't look like a very nice place to picnic and swim as it is...but a little moving whitewater would be an added bonus!

Pweease post your new pics? ;)
