This hike is offered by Deaun to the beautiful waterfall at Huay Tung Tao. It is a relatively short hike, taking about 90 minited to 2 hrs including a break at the waterfall. We will walk from the Big Buddah, turning off the road heading up toward the falls. From there on the trail will be a shaded forest path which will follow the stream up to the falls. After a break we will retrace our steps for about 500 meters and then take a different trail back to where we start the hike.
