What to Do at Tonsai Waterfall?
Tonsai waterfall looks in many ways like its neighbour Bangpae waterfall. Located a bit further north, it’s about the same size, the same height and at an equal walking distance from the parking. There is a National Park entry fee of 200 Baht per person on arrival, which is compulsory. There is not much around Tonsai except a small restaurant only open for the high season, and the waterfall itself is not impressive at all.
Khao Phra Thaeo National Park
The Khao Phra Theo National Park became a reserved park in 1977, covering 22 square kilometres. There is a 600-metre long nature trail to explore the waterfall and a 2-kilometre walking path along the stream. You can discover varieties of plants, trees, lichens and mushrooms, including the rare ‘Palm Chao Mueang Thalang’. If you are lucky, you might even spot some elusive wildlife: gibbons and mouse deers, but overall it might be worth the trip and the National Park fee.
