Bua Tong Waterfalls

Bua Tong Waterfalls is one of the most beautiful natural sights in Chiang Mai Province. Known for its gorgeous cascading waterfalls that seem to resemble a bride’s train, it’s a sight that's guaranteed to take your breath away.

The waterfalls are not only beautiful – its secluded location means you don’t have to endure the heat and the noise of the crowd usually experienced in tourist hot spots. A special feature of this waterfall is its rocks – the area looks like a hardened sponge with no algae or slime present, making it the perfect canvas to climb. Relish the relaxing feeling of bathing in fresh, clean mountain water while you take in the lush greenery and the calming sounds around you. However, do remember to take caution in visiting unfamiliar areas to avoid falling into accidents.



Bua Tong Waterfalls is located in Moo 8, Mae Ho Phra, Mae Taeng, Chiang Mai.
