The Mae Ya Waterfall, located in the Doi Inthanon National Park in Chiangthong District, Chiangmai Province, is the largest and most beautiful waterfall in the park. It is 260 meters in height. The fall cascadesdown over thirty levels of rock cliffs. Some points of the cliffs offer large stone terraces where tourists can take shelter from the water currents that plunge downward, creating white water curtains.

The Kaeng Sopha Waterfall is in the Thung Salaeng Luang National Park, Muang District, Pitsanuloke Province. Due to its size and beauty, it is named the Thai Niagara. One point of the fall is where the Khek River flows past the large cliff. The torrents are very strong in the rainy season. The vapour arising in the area creates a vast rain-like curtain.

The Huai Mae Khamin Waterfall is located in the Khuean Srinagarinara National Park, Sri Swadi District, Kanchanaburi Province. The Fall is formed by the Huay Mae Khamin Creek flowing past the limestone mountains that are on different levels. It consists of seven levels, each of which is names as follows: Don Wan, Man Kamin, Wang Na Pha, Chatra Kaew, Lai Chon Long, Dong Phi Suae and Rom Klao.

The Man Daeng Waterfall is in the Phu Hin Rong Kla National Park in Nakhon Thai District, Pitsanuloke Province. It is a large waterfall, consisting of thirty-two levels. Each level is unique. The stone slabs are covered with green moss and bedrock with pink dragon’s tongue plants. This is a favourite venue for nature lovers.
