The bua thong "sticky" waterfalls are a great nature experience near chiang mai. The limestone waterfalls are easy to climb and not too slippery despite the water gushing down. Climbing the falls is a very cool experience. We took a red taxi there from Chiang...More

This place is off the beaten path, but so worth the trip to get there! The rocks look like they should be slick with the water running over them, but they're not! Because of limestone the rocks are rough allowing you to climb all over...More
