To Dtaat Mook Waterfall, Optional Swim at Huay Tung Thao

Dogs are not permitted on this hike

This will be a 6km round trip morning walk, fairly short brisk walk for fairly fit hikers to see the waterfall and back. A shady trail through the jungle mostly beside a stream with rapids and smaller waterfalls all the way up. A very pretty walk. Dtaat Mook waterfall is right at the top and very impressive at the moment.
